New Myanmar Facility
HLP Klearfold’s parent company, Hip Lik Packaging, has broken ground on a 183,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility in the Ayeyarwady Region of Myanmar. This significant business expansion further demonstrates our continued leadership and commitment to the clear plastic packaging market, and to serving the needs of our customers.
Just like our Shenzhen facility, the new Myanmar factory will be vertically integrated, with extruders to produce the facility’s own premium-quality box grade plastics. The facility will also have a full complement of state-of-the-art printing and Soft Crease® converting equipment so that it will produce the same premium-quality plastic packaging that our US customers have come to expect from our Shenzhen facility.
Having a second production facility with completely redundant capabilities will make us an even better supplier to our customers. And, just like our Shenzhen facility, the Myanmar facility will produce single-user PPE face shields for use by healthcare professionals and for any other essential service providers.
The new facility is expected to be fully operational in mid-2021.
