LONDON (CNI)--German rigid film company Kalle Pentaplast is to be renamed Klockner Pentaplast after parent company Klockner-Werke bought out Hoechst's 50% in the former joint venture early last year.
The name change will take effect in May, Kalle Pentaplast announced Wednesday.
Kalle Pentaplast makes rigid films of plastics such as PVC, polyester and polypropylene. The films are used to make pharmaceutical, cosmetic and food packaging, as well as office supplies, furniture laminates, credit cards and advertising displays.
Through Kalle Pentaplast and its Klockner Pentaplast of America business, Klockner-Werke produces about 300 000 tonne/year of rigid films.
