(TSX VENTURE:ARH)(PINKSHEETS:ARSLF)(FRANKFURT:AKC), an energy company, has announced that the operator of the COPOL ET AL HZ CHAMBERS 14-15-41-11 W5M well has completed the drilling of the horizontal portion of the hole on March 13, 2012.
"CPP delivers a unique set of properties, notably high-temperature resistance and excellent stiffness and clarity," notes Denis Lanoe, Copol's v.p of operations and general manager.
To that point, Lana notes that both of Copol's primary material suppliers, LyondellBasell and ExxonMobil, have used Copol's production equipment as an extension of their own R&D operations to test new resin formulations and film structures.
Copol still operates out of the former PVC stretch-film plant, using 80,000 [ft.sup.2] of manufacturing space to produce dozens of CPP film structures from three single-layer lines and one three-layer line.
We want to play a major role in shaping the direction of the industry, and investing in this type of advanced equipment will allow us do that." The new W&H line will eventually permit Copol to produce CPP with up to nine layers.
That's not to say that Copol is an industry behemoth that clubs competitors based on overwhelming volume.
Adds Bill Daehler of Northstar Films, Copol's exclusive U.S.
In Nova Scotia, Copol has steadily upgraded both the hardware and controls of all four of its cast lines.
Copol operates multiple slitter/rewinders that can produce custom finished rolls ranging from 0.75 in.
Copol determines the optimal resin/additive packages for each application, but it also works to ensure that alternatives are always available to strengthen supply-chain management.
Because of the depth and breadth of the product range, there is no such thing as a dedicated production line at Copol. The firm will combine orders from various customers in a single production run as needed, says Lanoe.
Compressed lead times have encouraged Copol to innovate in areas beyond manufacturing.
