Sigma to Add Davis-Standard Stretch Film Line to Shelbyville Plant

(Bridgewater, N.J.) - Leading U.S. stretch film producer Sigma Stretch Film recently purchased a blown film line from Davis-Standard, LLC for the company's facility in Shelbyville, Ky. The three-layer production line will support Sigma's growing business, and is similar to a line purchased in 2008. It is slated for a mid-2011 installation. All machine modules will be pre-wired, requiring only primary power drops and communication cables, to reduce installation time and cost.

"We've been very pleased with the Davis-Standard line we installed in the Tulsa (Oklahoma) plant in 2009," said Per Nylen, executive vice president of Sigma Stretch Film. "Davis-Standard has enabled us to advance our machinery technology to support new markets and defend our leading position. They have done a very good job of addressing our needs and we are pleased with the depth of their machinery capabilities in both blown and cast film."

It is comprised of 13 divisions and employs over 5,000 people. Sigma has five North American plants with four in the United States and one in Canada.
