Balcan Innovations Opens Inaugural US Film and Flexible Packaging Facility
April 12, 2022

Canadian-based flexible packaging and technical film manufacturer Balcan Innovations has opened its inaugural US manufacturing facility following the completed installation of its first extruder and printing press in Pleasant Prairie, Wi.

The opening of the 165,000 sq ft facility, which was purchased in June 2021 to support growing demand from Balcan Packaging's American customers, follows a 6-month construction and rehabilitation period that also came with investments in new machinery.

With the new US facility, Balcan is expanding its capability to deliver sustainable, technical films and flexible packaging products to its US customers.

The company said within the coming year, the Pleasant Prairie facility will fill out its growing fleet of three and five-layer extruders, along with a series of printing presses, converting equipment, warehousing space, and loading access via truck and rail, and will unlock a series of advanced manufacturing capabilities, including products developed with PCR resin and HD retail-quality printing.
