Quinn Packaging to invest €3 million in new extrusion line


Irish plastic packaging firm Quinn Packaging (Co. Cavan, Ireland) is to invest more than €3 million in a new PET sheet extrusion line. The company is setting its sights on becoming a major player in the rigid food packaging market and will provide additional capacity to further develop its PET sheet and meat tray business when the machine is fully commissioned in mid-2016.

The investment follows on the heels of another major investment of Quinn Industrial Holdings Ltd. (QIHL), the company which acquired both the Quinn Packaging and Construction Industry Supply businesses two years ago. Since then, QIHL has generated 74 new positions in that period and announced further investment in its lorry fleet, recently taking delivery of phase one of a major capital investment program to replenish the 140-strong Quinn haulage fleet.
