Officials at Mitsubishi Polyester Film, Inc. have initiated another major capital upgrade at its location in Greer, South Carolina. The $20 million project will increase capacity as well as provide enhanced capability to produce innovative new products.
The projects at the Greer facility will be completed in late 2012, said Dennis Trice, president and chief operating officer at Mitsubishi Polyester Film, Inc. This project comes on top of the multimillion dollar project announced in 2010 to roll out the Reprocess™ Sustainable Liner Program, the industry’s first closed loop recycling process for silicone coated polyester liners.
“Mitsubishi Polyester Film is committed to support the growth needs of its North American customers as well as providing innovative products and new ideas,” Trice said. “Mitsubishi has
already invested over $200 million at its Greer facility over the past 10 years. These new projects continue to reinforce our dedication to the industry.”
