W&H supplies its 250th Varex II line


Two milestones were reached when Laval, Canada-based Pro-Pals Industries Ltd. ordered a Varex II line from German extrusion machinery maker Windmöller & Hölscher (W&H). For Pro-Pals, this milestone was the company’s start in blown film extrusion and for W&H it marked the construction of the 250th Varex II line, which was launched at K2013 show in Germany.

The 40-year old Pro-Pals has specialised in printing and converting and purchased film from outside suppliers. Going forward, about 80% of film will be manufactured in house allowing the company to control the entire production process and pass this added value on to customers.

While expanding their facility to accommodate the new machinery, Pro-Pals sent its extrusion team to the W&H Technical Centre in Lengerich for trials and to work on formulations.

“Being able to use the lab is a unique service and was a real advantage for us. The training itself was a good mix of theory and practice that we found very useful,” said Pro- Pals-Vice-President Lucio Casale Jr.

With its headquarters in Lengerich, Germany, the family-owned W&H had sales of approximately EUR835 million in 2017.
