Palram Celebrates New Polycarbonate Line

Palram Americas, a leading manufacturer of polycarbonate and PVC sheets, celebrated the grand opening of Line 44, a new state-of-the-art polycarbonate line, with a two-day event on April 30 and May1. This new line will add the ability to produce optical, security and containment grade products and sheets or coils up to 104" wide untrimmed. Palram began the celebration with a cocktail reception and dinner at the Hotel Bethlehem on April 30. Various products made from polycarbonate were placed in a grand display. On May 1, guests were then treated to breakfast and an informative presentation at the Hotel Bethlehem on the history of Palram, plans for the future, and the capabilities and potential directions for growth with Line 44.

Guests were then transported to Palram Americas in Kutztown, PA for the ribbon-cutting ceremony, luncheon and tour. A toast was given while Matt Ehrig, Project Engineer at Palram Americas, cut the ribbon flanked by Ron Dvir (left) and Mike Howser (right). During lunch, U. S. Representative Charlie Dent arrived and spoke on the value of Palram as a local employer.

Capabilities of this latest addition include up to 15mm thick general purpose polycarbonate sheet, co-extruded UV (1 or 2 sides), sign-grade sheets and coils, clear, whites and colors, fire-rated sheets and high optics sheets.
