TERREBONNE, Quebec – August 30, 2022 — NELMAR Security Packaging Systems announced the completed installation of its first, state-of-the-art, five-layer extrusion line, which began production last week.

The new, Windmöller & Hölscher extruder joins an existing fleet of three-layer extrusion machinery at the company’s Terrebonne facility and enables the company to increase its production capacity by 33%. “NELMAR has greatly expanded its extrusion capabilities,” stated Director of Operations, Kevin Couto. “We’re seeing increased demand from our customers for tamper-evident packaging that incorporates post-consumer recycled (PCR) material – and our new technology will enable us to deliver on more of these projects.”

With the arrival of its new extruder, NELMAR is set to expand its sustainable film offerings, while upholding its focus on unmatched product quality. “NEMAR’s products are known for their high-performing properties,” Couto added. “The new extruder enables us to develop film blends that use higher proportions of PCR resin without compromising the packaging’s quality, sealability or appearance. It’s a real advantage for our customers looking to achieve their sustainability goals.”
