Windmoeller & Hoelscher Corp.
23 New England Way
Lincoln, RI, 02865

Press release date: December 21, 2012

LINCOLN, RI - Next Generation Films based in Lexington, OH, is adding two high-output VAREX blown film lines from Windmoeller & Hoelscher to accommodate the sharply increasing demand for 3-layer roll stock. One line is currently being installed, while the other line is scheduled for a May 2013 installation.

The 3-layer VAREX now being installed has a 110" working width, grooved feed extruders (90.30/120.30/90.30D), Optifil P2 gauge control system, MULTICOOL air ring and a 27.5" Maxicone C die.

The line to be installed in May will have an 87" working width and be equipped with grooved feed extruders (70.30/105.30/70.30D), an OPTICOOL high-output air ring, a 15.74" MAXICONE die, and the OPTIFIL P3 gauge control system.

Back in June of 2009, Dave Frecka announced his goal of doubling the company's $100 million annual sales by 2014. That goal was met and surpassed by mid-2012, with the company boasting annual sales of $245 million, representing a $90 million increase in the past year alone. According to Frecka, the company is renovating a 175,000 ft2 building on the Next campus to house additional equipment.

Next Generation Films, Inc. was founded in 1994 and is a supplier of specialty films to a variety of markets, including the food packaging, automobile, courier, manufactured housing and protective packaging segments.

Windmoeller & Hoelscher is a leader in the design, manufacturing and distribution of flexographic and gravure printing presses, blown and cast film extrusion systems, multiwall equipment, plastic sack and bag making machines, as well as form-fill-seal machinery for the converting and packaging industry.
