Windmoeller & Hoelscher Partners with TC Transcontinental Packaging for New Barrier and PE Extrusion Lines

Windmoeller & Hoelscher (W&H) recently announced its partnership with TC Transcontinental Packaging on two VAREX II blown film lines, including one barrier line for the Whitby Ontario, Canada plant. These new lines will reportedly support TC Transcontinental Packaging’s growth in multilayer barrier films in North America and are scheduled to start up in the fall of 2019.

“W&H is privileged to be working closely with TC Transcontinental Packaging on strengthening their position in the flexible packaging market,” said Andrew Wheeler, president of Windmoeller & Hoelscher North America.  “Many of the companies TC Transcontinental acquired were longstanding W&H customers and we are delighted to continue servicing and supporting them with our technologies.”

The first line is an 87” 9-layer VAREX II and is the first barrier line from W&H that will be running at Transcontinental Whitby. The second line is a 102” 3-layer VAREX II with a Filmatic II S surface winder and will join existing 3 and 5-layer lines for running PE films.

“We are proud to partner with an innovative industrial company such as W&H to help us achieve new heights in our product and service offering,” said Dustin Dyer, senior vice president, shrink and extrusion at TC  Transcontinental Packaging. “The new lines will allow us to increase our productivity and be more flexible while keeping in mind our environmental impact.”
