Kuraray to build PVA films plant in Europe

The plant will be set up in Poland to meet growing global demand and strengthening global supply chain

Kuraray Co., Ltd. has announced that it will establish a new MonoSol production facility for polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) water-soluble films in Zimna Wodka, Poland as demand grows for packaging film for unit dose detergents, pharmaceuticals, and other products.  The plant is slated to begin operation in mid-2022.

Global demand is expanding for PVA water-soluble films for use as packaging for unit dose detergents, cosmetics, foods, agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, and more. The market is expected to continue expanding going forward.

Kuraray’s U.S. subsidiary MonoSol, LLC, which manufactures and markets PVA water-soluble films, has production bases located mainly in the US Midwest. However, the group has now decided to establish a new production base in Poland with the aim of optimizing our global supply chain and expanding sales in Europe.

To ensure the company’s ability to meet diversifying customer needs as the world’s No. 1 supplier of PVA water-soluble films, Kuraray will expand its supply system while maintaining its focus on further enhancing product quality and developing new products.
