Tekni-Plex to Begin Coextruded Closure Liners Production in India

Tekni-Plex is planning to begin the production of its Tri-Seal coextruded closure liners in newly acquired Ghiya Extrusions' facility in India.

With the addition of new production capacity in India, Tekni-Plex will be able to better serve its customers' needs for quality liners in Southeast Asia.

Tekni-Plex vice president and general manager David Andrulonis said: "Brand owners in Asia, the Middle East and Africa seeking high-performing liners that are compliant with US Food & Drug Administration standards, will now have access to a more geographically-advantageous supply.

"Our new manufacturing capability will also benefit multinational companies who will now have access to the same products, regardless of their global manufacturing location."

Made out of a combination of foamed and solid low-density polyethylene (LDPE), the F-217 and F-219 three-layer liners can be used with both plastic and metal closures to provide excellent resealability and chemical resistance, Tekni-Plex said.

The liners, previously only manufactured at Tekni-Plex facilities in the US and Europe, will be supplied to customers in the food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical markets.

In February this year, Tekni-Plex acquired Indian EPE foam closure liners company Ghiya Extrusions Private in a bid to grow its closure liner business globally.

Tekni-Plex CEO Paul Young previously said: "Ghiya Extrusions provides a great platform for Tekni-Plex to offer our existing and new Indian customers localized production of Tekni's closure liner products for pharmaceutical, food and FMCG markets.

"It also enables Tekni to offer Ghiya products through its existing channels in India and Asia. We are particularly excited that Mr. Nakul Ghiya, the guiding force behind the business, will remain with the company and be a key player in growing Tekni's business in India and in the region."
