Partnership with Fujian Forop Advanced Materials Co. Ltd.
This huge industrial development aims to boost the production potential of the group, which intends to become the largest producer of BOPP film in the world.
Solid basis for partnershipIn 2021, an agreement was signed for the supply of 16 GOEBEL IMS MONOSLIT 9000 BOPP slitter rewinders, which is reported to create the solid basis for an intensive partnership, in which IMS TECHNOLOGIES supports the Chinese manufacturer in its ambitious industrial plan. A further agreement is expected to be finalised 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.
Shared valuesThe business relationship with the Chinese group is based on the shared values of profession, reliability, cooperation and innovation: The technology delivered by IMS TECHNOLOGIES is part of a smart manufacturing plan aimed at the production of innovative technical products able to increase 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.”www.imstechnologies.com
