Maag/Automatik to supply systems to M&G's largest PET plant in the US

Switzerland headquartered Maag and subsidiary Automatik Plastics Machinery (both are part of Dover Corporation), manufacturers of gear pumps, pelletising systems, and filtration systems, have secured a contract from M&G Finanziaria (Italy) to supply the equipment needed for a complete PET pelletising plant. Automatik will deliver a number of its Sphero underwater pelletising systems as well as corresponding melt pumps, screen changers and direct crystallisation CC-PET process.

Located in Corpus Christi, Texas, M&G's new operation is designed for a capacity of 1 million tonnes/year and as a consequence will be the largest PET production site ever built. Commissioning is expected to commence by the end of 2015.The M&G Group is among the world's three largest producers of PET resin for packaging applications, and the second largest in the US. The company expects that the project will both consolidate and strengthen its dominant position.
