Staufen, Jan 19th, 2022 – Liveo Research GmbH invests in new extruder capacities for PET and polyolefin films at the Staufen location. In doing so, the company is responding to the switch from PVC to polyester films and the strong demand for sustainable films.

The films produced in Staufen not only meet previous and possible future recycling and environmental requirements, but also all packaging laws that are relevant for customers. The plant will go into operation in the second half of 2022.

With this investment, the Specialty Films Solution division (SFS) of Liveo Research GmbH is following its’ growth strategy and continuously adapting this portfolio for a sustainable future. This includes products from films that contain recycled material to films that can be easily recycled.

With the new extruder system, Liveo Research will be able to supply its customers around the world even faster while maintaining reliability as usual. Liveo’s Pharma Packaging Innovations business (PPI) will also take advantage of the new capacity and will be enabled to support and grow their sustainable product offering with films for the pharmaceutical industry.

„Liveo Research invests in its locations worldwide, not only to be able to supply its customers better and faster, but also to be prepared for future requirements. This includes sustainable products as well as the latest technology to produce them“, says Dr. Carsten Heldmann, CEO of the Liveo Research Group.
