Coveris targets growth in BOPP beverage labels

Matthews, NC, United States

Leading packaging manufacturer Coveris targets growth in the BOPP (Biaxially-Oriented Polypropylene) label beverage market supported by continued investment at its manufacturing facility in Louth, Lincolnshire (UK).

Following significant investment over the last 18 months, Coveris has established a state-of-the-art BOPP label manufacturing facility at its Louth site with a dedicated finishing hall and installation of specialist high-speed slitting equipment. To support growth plans in the beverage market, Coveris has made further investment and upgraded its BOPP label manufacturing capabilities with the installation of the UK’s first fully automated Universal X6 slitter.

Using the latest technology, the Universal X6 slitter provides high-speed efficiency, accuracy and automation in Coveris’ production of BOPP labels, increasing the site’s capacity to over 3 billion labels per year. With moisture imperious qualities and performance during high speed application, reel-fed BOPP labels are typically used in the PET bottling industry for water, dairy-based and carbonated drinks.
