Eastman Chemical Company (Eastman) revealed plans for an expansion project at its Dresden, Germany films production plant. The company said it plans to add a new coating and laminating line at the facility.
“The additional capacity will allow us to meet the continued strong growth we’re seeing in Europe and around the globe for our paint protection films as well as provide versatility to meet growing customer needs in high-value automotive and architectural window films,” said Erin Bernhardt, performance films general manager.
The company also said the announcement of the Dresden project is one of several major investments it has made in paint protection films. Work on the facility is planned to reach completion in mid-2021.
