The Futamura Team responsible for building the machine and completing the project

Futamura, the global manufacturer of sustainable cellulose films, casings, and non- wovens, announces the recent opening of its state-of-the-art cellulose film production line at its European manufacturing plant in Wigton, UK. This strategic investment underscores Futamura's commitment to meeting the growing demand for its flagship range of renewable and compostable NatureFlex™ films.

The grand unveiling of the production line, officiated by Futamura President Yasuo Nagae, comes after a year of meticulous planning, design, and construction. The unique machine marks a significant milestone for Futamura, enabling the company to cater to the escalating global need for environmentally responsible packaging materials. The new line is projected to enhance the facility's production capacity by approximately 25%, thereby minimising lead times and bolstering the availability of NatureFlex™ films in the market.

Adrian Cave, Managing Director at Futamura Cellulose Films Europe, expressed his gratitude for the dedication and collaborative effort made by the entire team. He said, "The successful commissioning of this tailor-made machine is a testament to the unwavering commitment and hard work of our team, especially our engineering department, who has carefully built the machine from the ground up. However, it is thanks to the exceptional contributions of everyone involved that this vision has been brought to life. The new production line will enable us to increase capacity for our renewable and certified compostable films and allow us to further develop our latest innovation project, allowing us to better serve our customers to achieve their sustainable packaging goals.”

NatureFlex™ films are derived from renewable wood pulp and are fully compliant with global industrial composting standards, including BS EN13432, are certified by TÜV Austria for backyard composting, as well as offering a range of AGEC Law-compliant films.
