POLYKAR ANNOUNCES EXPANSION OF PRODUCTION CAPACITY

We are pleased to announce that due to an increased demand for Polykar’s products, we will be expanding our production capacity in early 2012. This second expansion in 12 months will increase our annual capacity by 5 million pounds, helping us better serve our core garbage bag market and grow our food packaging business unit.

“Our sustained commitment to quality and the introduction of new products explains why we are seeing increased demand across all of our product lines” noted Amir Karim, Vice President of Business Development. “We have also aligned ourselves with key distributors from coast to coast who are growing rapidly, in spite of the current economic climate.”

This multi-million dollar investment underscores Polykar’s vision to be one of Canada’s leading quality manufacturers of garbage bags, food packaging and polyethylene film.
