RKW North America, Kentucky, USA

RKW North America in Franklin, Kentucky, USA has been a part of the RKW Group since the end of 2010. The current location was built in 2000 for the manufacture of films for lamination and technical applications. 

Expanded manufacturing

From its establishment, the site in Franklin focused its attention on the development of technical films that are particularly suited to flexible packaging in both food and non-food categories. In 2006, the plant's capacity was expanded through the addition of multi-layer extrusion technology to complement the product range. In 2012, RKW further increased its presence on the North American market by installing new capacity for the production of films for the hygiene disposables market.
