Your needs.  Our know-how.

 

 

With more than 34 years of experience in the plastic film and sheet extrusion industry Macro has developed a deep technical understanding of the needs of today’s film processor. Trends that have been observed over our history have evolved into common requirements; down-gauging to save on material costs, automation to improve plant safety, tighter quality controls, improved gauge control, and more output.
