Rani Plast boosts production capacity


Exciting things have been happening in Rani Plast’s Bjölas production plant. The company made big investments recently to increase its production capacity.

The demand for plastic packaging materials has remained high recently, despite the shortage of raw materials. Rani Plast has responded to the shortage by increasing the production capacity in its Bjölas plant. The new investments include three lines for five-layer film and one for seven-layer film as well as an Eco facility.

“The investments’ timing was perfect. The market situation has resulted in extended delivery times throughout the industry. But thanks to our increased production capacity, we have been able to reduce delivery times for our customers,” says Dennis Granqvist, Sales Director at Rani Plast.

“Thanks to the investments, we can now better meet our customers’ needs.”

Granqvist points out that the investments not only boost production but also improve flexibility and efficiency.

“The extruders have new features – including an in-line printing unit – offering converters a relatively cost-effective way to streamline their processes.”

Extended product range

Rani Plast’s Bjölas factory now has four production lines producing 7-layer agricultural film. The addition of a fourth line both boosted capacity and extended the product range.

“We can deliver silo film in several dimensions: widths range from 5 to 22 metres. The demand for silo bags has grown significantly, partly due to the war in Ukraine. The new production line has enabled us to better meet our customers’ needs,” explains Granqvist.

Investing in the production of recycled raw materials

A new Eco facility was also recently installed in Bjölas. The facility helps Rani Plast achieve its sustainability goals.

“The demand for products made from recycled material is growing. Some customers want it to be evident from the plastic itself that it is made from recycled material.”

The new plant has been used to melt Rani Plast’s production waste into granules. In the future, the plant will also process plastic waste from customers.

“Our customers have their own production lines that generate waste. The new plant enables us to process their waste and speed up the shift to a circular economy,” says Granqvist.
