Source:Adsale Plastics Network    Editor:JK    Date:28.Oct.2021

Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation (MCC) announces the expansion of polyester film production capacity at its affiliate Mitsubishi Polyester Film GmbH (MFE) located in Wiesbaden, Germany. MCC will invest approximately €110 million in a new production line, which is scheduled to be completed at the end of 2024.


This is the third investment by MCC in the global polyester film business since 2018. It follows the opening of a new production line in South Carolina USA in 2018 and an investment in a new production line in Jakarta, Indonesia, with planned start up in 2022.


MCC has technological development capabilities for customizing high performance polyester films for industrial and labeling applications.

In recent years, the global market growth rate for polyester film has been about 5%, and MFE has responded to growing customer demand by procuring polyester film from other MCC Group companies while operating existing facilities.


As demand is expected to grow steadily in the future, MCC will install this new production line at MFE with a capacity of 27,000 tons/year, establishing it as one of the world's largest production facilities for high performance polyester films.


The new production line, which will be equipped with the latest energy-saving equipment, aims to reduce CO2 emissions for the entire plant, while expanding production capacity. In addition, the new production line will introduce equipment that can recycle polyester film collected from customers and consumers as raw materials.
