MPI Release, a manufacturer of silicone coated release liners, has installed a Polytype thermal coater, doubled production, opened a second plant in Greenfield, Indiana, and hired a new director of sales and marketing.
MPI Release has purchased a high speed, 87” (2210 mm) wide Polytype thermal coater for its Greenfield, Indiana, plant. Capable of applying silicone to two sides of a web in one pass, the coater also prints in-line as well as applying controlled remoisterization to a paper substrate.
The company has also acquired a new plant in Greenfield, Indiana, which doubles its capacity. The new coater at the Indiana plant delivers curing capability to the company’s equipment line-up, which includes both ultra violet and electron beam. These capabilities, available in widths up to 82”, are located in MPI's Winchester, Massachusetts, facility.
MPI Release has appointed Stephen B. Odders, formerly vice president of sales for Douglas-Hanson Company and, subsequently, Loparex Corporation, as director of sales and marketing.
