First Bubble Guard® Board line hitting USA market

 Primex Plastics Corporation’s new line goes on stream

 Primex Plastics Corporation based Richmond (Indiana, USA) and founded in 1965, is the leader in custom extruded plastic sheet and roll products for thermoforming, fabrication and printing. With facilities in five States from coast to coast and in Great Britain, Primex Plastics Corporation is one of the largest plastic sheet producers in the US.

A state-of-the-art full optional BUBBLE  GUARD® BOARD line by COLINES® has been successfully installed and commissioned at Primex Plastics headquarters in Richmond, producing sheets for printing and packaging applications.
Thanks to the perfect cooperation between the technical teams of COLINES® and Primex Plastics, the line started successfully in February 2016 producing Bubble Guard® Board sheets with a great flexibility allowing “on the fly” width change from 1220 mm (48”) up to 1600 mm (63”).

 
COLINES® group structure, unique in the industry, allowed a training program of Primex Plastics team at its sister company Imballaggi Protettivi in Italy during the manufacturing period: this  granted a smooth startup of the line at Primex Plastics premises.
 
Michael J. Cramer, Primex Plastics Corporation’s President said: “We were very pleased with the whole experience, COLINES professionalism, expertise and interaction between the Groups. The level of preparation required for a project of this magnitude resulted  in  no major issues throughout the process and  this allowed an early successful commissioning".
