Greenpak: Successful entry into the Chinese barrier market thanks to Reifenhäuser blown film technology

Exhibition, Press Releases

The new Chinese company Greenpak has put a 7-layer EVOLUTION blown film line from Reifenhäuser Kiefel Extrusion into operation to become the first producer of barrier film in the greater Shanghai area. With this investment, the company established by Gang Hu only in 2012, focuses on success based on high quality.

Since the line came on stream in March 2013 Greenpak has been producing symmetric and asymmetric barrier films for end products in the strongly growing, but highly demanding food and packaging industries, especially for those who are new to this market, see . Greenpak’s start was successful in spite of the fact that they had no experience in this field. The combination of a hightech line and a supplier able to provide not only technology, but also the required technical know-how and a well established local service network was crucial for Greenpak.

Qing (Colin) Wang, General Manager at Greenpak says: “Greenpak received a very good support during installation, commissioning and production start-up by the German manufacturer Reifenhäuser Kiefel Extrusion. We appreciate the know-how and the fast and good service Reifenhäuser can provide by their subsidiary in Suzhou. The mixture of know-how, support and high quality technology makes the successful start for a newcomer like us possible – even in a demanding market.”

The 7-layer EVOLUTION line features up-to-date components that meet the requirements of the market. EVOLUTION ULTRA RANGE extruders ensure long-term flexibility needed in the market. Greenpak can process a broad range of raw materials in all layers – e.g. all kinds of PE, ionomers, PA, EVOH, PETG, and PP. The W-P winder installed in the line allows to change between contact, center and gap winding. This makes the winder appropriate for winding also sensitive and demanding films. In order to keep initial training times of operators as short as possible, the intuitive EVOLUTION C line control with 24“ color touchscreen was installed.

Greenpak’s focus on quality has proven successful. Eberhard Wenger, area sales manager at Reifenhäuser Kiefel Extrusion says: “The fast development of knowledge in Greenpak as a complete newcomer in the blown film business is astonishing. We expect Greenpak to provide excellent product quality in the future.“

The Reifenhäuser Group will be present at Chinaplas with a common stand. Hall E1 – stand G 41
