Increase in Productive Capacity
This project consisted of the acquisition of a new automatic production line with an in-line irradiation process for shrink films, giving them certain specific properties for very specific purposes or uses in sectors such as food, hospital, etc.
This investment made it possible to increase production capacity by around 35% and turnover by 20%, fundamental goals to consolidate the growth of exports at FIBOPE, representing 98% of FIBOPE’s total turnover. The goal of GVA growth of 46% between the pre (2013) and post project (2019) years was also achieved.
With this investment project, the goal in terms of saving energy resources was also achieved (with the installation of a photovoltaic park in the entire area susceptible to energy production) and the reuse of waste (with the installation of a recycling unit ).
