Sigma invests $4.4 million in Ontario film plant


Sigma Stretch Film of Canada Co. is investing about US$4.2 million in its Belleville plant

The firm plans to double silage film production in the project, which involves installing a five-layer, Battenfeld Gloucester blown film line and building renovations, according to Sigma plant manager Kevin McCaughen.
“It’s specifically for silage,” McCaughen said in a telephone interview. “Most of this film will go to Europe.”
Silage film is made of polyethylene and is used to secure agricultural feed such as hay bales. Sigma also makes stretch film in Belleville.
Sigma already makes monolayer silage film on two lines in Belleville but the five-layer product will allow it to compete more effectively in overseas markets. In addition to Europe, silage film will be aimed at Asia and new markets in South America.. McCaughen claimed the five layer silage line is unique in North America. McCaughen estimated the new film line will begin production in late January.
The project is expected to add 10 to 15 jobs to Sigma’s current payroll of 62.
