To keep its expansion plans on track, Obeikan Investment Group (Riyadh, Saudi Arabia) has invested in a new stretch-film line from extrusion systems manufacturer Davis-Standard LLC (Fulton, NY). The new line is slated for installation in June 2009.

The company bought its first D-S line in 2004, using it for board coating applications.

The new line is a 3m-wide cast stretch-film line, designed to produce five-layer stretch rolls 500 mm wide, at a rate of 1800 kg/hr. Line components include four air-cooled extruders, a Cloeren feedblock and cast-film die, a resin loading system, and associated downstream equipment.

According to Davis-Standard’s Middle East district sales manager, Adnan Bdour, Davis-Standard’s presence in the region is growing rapidly. “The Middle East is becoming one of the largest plastic product manufacturing regions in the world due to lower energy prices, lower cost resins, reasonable labor costs, and other factors,” said Bdour. Other industry experts also predict growth in the area, especially for stretch-film processing, as reported late last year by MPW here.  —[email protected]
