Fujian Forop Advanced Materials Co. Ltd. is one of the top three leading companies in the Chinese market for the production and sale of BOPP film products. The Chinese industrial giant means to start-up two new production sites in southwest and southeast China by 2025, leading to a total of six production sites with 30 BOPP production lines. This huge industrial development will serve to boost the production potential of the group, which intends to become the largest producer of BOPP film in the world.
The agreements signed in 2021 for the supply of 16 GOEBEL IMS MONOSLIT 9000 BOPP slitter rewinders create the solid basis for a great partnership, in which IMS TECHNOLOGIES supports the Chinese manufacturer in its ambitious industrial plan. A further agreement is expected to be finalized in 2022 that will bring additional primary slitter rewinders for another 6 BOPP production lines, already ordered by Forop Advanced Materials at the beginning of 2022.
The business relationship with the Chinese group is based on the shared values of profession, reliability, cooperation and innovation: IMS TECHNOLOGIES technology is part of a smart manufacturing plan aimed at the production of innovative technical products able to increase the Forop Advanced Materials competitiveness on international markets.
Tobias Lanksweirt, Managing Director of GOEBEL Schneid- und Wickelsysteme GmbH and Sales Director Film adds: “Such a project is unique in our history, we are very proud and thankful that FOROP put its trust in GOEBEL IMS. With this project we show once more that we are the world market leader if it comes to primary slitting and rewinding, especially in the field of high-speed BOPP converting. We are looking forward to a long and fruitful cooperation with FOROP”.
