The Plastic Films Division
Leader in ultra thin shrink films
Historically based in Brittany, the Plastic Films Division is specialized in the production of ultra thin packaging shrink film and dielectric film for capacitors.
Situated in Ergué Gabéric, a small town close to Quimper, the Pen Carn production site is a modern state of the art production facility.
A high level of technical know-how in combination with the application of the latest generation high-tech resins make that Bolloré has become very quickly leader on the market of technical and multilayer films.
