The leading Bulgarian plastic foil manufacturer Ate Plast opened its new plant for flexo printing and laminating in Stara Zagora. The project worth over 3.5 million euro is implemented under the Operational Programme "Development of the Competitiveness of the Bulgarian Economy".

Two high-end pieces of technology - a flexographic and a lamination machine, have been purchased for the new plant, 80% of which production will be exported, the company said.

In 2008, to meet the rising demand for packaging, Ate Plast made another major investment in its production. The company bought a modern high-capacity three-layer installation which is based on innovative technologies for maintaining high and consistent product quality.

Ate Plast is one of the largest polyethylene films manufacturers in Bulgaria. The output is directed to a number of sectors such as food processing, construction, glass and chemical industry, cosmetics, powders and detergents, medicine, agriculture and gardening. 80% of the company’s overall production is exported.
