In a bid to meet the increasing demand, Indiana headquartered global manufacturer and marketer of plastic packaging items - Berry Global Group Inc. has reportedly invested funds over USD 30 million with an aim to accelerate the production of ultra-high-performance stretch films. According to Mike Hill, President of the Engineered Material Division at Berry Global, the consumers extensively demand palletization films that reduce damage, breakage, and control loss along with reducing the cost of wrapping and rendering sustainable value. Reportedly, Berry’s Fortitude™ hand films and Transcend™ and Stratos™ machine films, are the three leading product offerings by the company that provide the necessary product requirements. These products are expected to witness unprecedented demand and growth in the coming years. Apparently, Fortitude hand film is a hybrid hand film developed to provide high operational productivity which is easy to handle and is lightweight. The easy to handle rolls render high film productivity and superior holding force that can be easily used in challenging application settings.

Transcend provides film survivability and high-load containment at low gauges that render better results as compared to other films.
