BEAN STATION, TN | FILMtech, a manufacturer of metallized and barrier films, is celebrating ten years of excellence in production, while expanding technologies in the packaging and converting industry.
FILMtech's general manager Mark McGarel says the business began in 2002 with five people and after a decade of steady growth, even in challenging economic times and a competitive marketplace, now employs 48 people and continues to expand while following a responsible business model.
The company is committed to environmental stewardship and annually prevents as much as 500 tons of film, pallets, aluminum, and paperboard from entering landfills as part of its ongoing effort to recycle, reuse, and reduce.
FILMtech has expanded exponentially and is now housed in an 88,000-sq-ft facility and produces more than a million lb of product each month. Current applications include flexible packaging, board lamination, balloons, agricultural barrier films, high-barrier laminations, and industrial converting.
"There are things we have not even considered yet, and we look forward to working with new customers in the development of exciting new applications as we enter into our second decade of operations," says McGarel. “One of the most important keys to the company's success has been diversification."
