Rani Plast to extrude film at Russian plant


Finnish flexible packaging producer Rani Plast looks set to begin extruding film at its new Russian plant in the Kaluga region from the start of next year.
The family owned group has invested €20m to construct the new polyethylene film extrusion facility at Vorotynsk, close to the western Russian city of Kaluga. The new operation is expected to be launched early in January 2012.
Teerijärvi, Finland-based Rani Plast has built a 5,400m² plant on a 2.3 hectare site located at the I-park industrial development established by the Finnish construction group Lemminkäinen. The film producer is installing three extrusion lines with an 8,000 tpa capacity in the initial phase of the plant and will double its output with three more lines in the medium term.
Rani Plast, which has been exporting its product range to Russia for some time, intends to supply national industrial customers from the Kaluga unit with packaging for agriculture, consumer goods, dielectric insulation and pallet wrap. The plant will also supply film to clients in the CIS former Soviet states.
In the plant’s initial development phase, Rani Plast Kaluga is due to employ a workforce of up to 40 at the site, a number that it expects to increase later to around 60.
Rani Plast has other film plants in Finland and Slovakia in addition to several joint venture film and bag converting units in Sweden, Finland and the Ukraine. It also has a film sales and distribution base in Norway.
