Innovia focuses on BOPP

Innovia is refocusing its efforts on its specialty biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) films business now that it’s completed the sale of its cellulose films business, first announced three months ago.

Joe Piccione, managing director of Innovia Films states: “Separating a business that has grown over 80+ years is a challenge in itself. Achieving that in such a short time frame is commendable to all those involved in that process.”

Some of the Innovia employees have transferred with the cellulose film business, which is now owned by Futamura Chemicals, based in Nagoya, Japan.

Piccione continued: “Moving forward, we are well invested and will therefore be looking closely at how we can build upon our manufacturing capabilities and in maximizing our R&D and technical expertise. This will be done to continuously deliver new and exciting product solutions to our existing and new customers. Having divested of our cellulose film business provides us clear focus on strategically growing our BOPP business.”

I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
