Film supplier Pliant today is continuing its capital investment program for its Canadian operations. The company will invest $3 million during 2008, adding to the $4.5 million invested in 2006 and 2007 to improve its position in Canada.
Similar to initiatives currently underway in Europe, Asia and Mexico, Pliant has also initiated exciting new strategies to grow its market share in Canada. With the recent addition of a new leadership team and more focus on the needs of the Canadian marketplace, Pliant Canada will actively expand the company’s marketshare for its industry-leading meat and food wrap, pallet wrap, engineered films, personal Care, medical and printed products.
With Canadian headquarters in Orillia, Ontario and existing manufacturing facilities located in Orillia and Toronto, Ontario, Pliant will be actively seeking strategic Canadian acquisitions, as well as expanding its current sales force to better serve the domestic market, according to executives.
