O'Neal completed a new grassroots thin-film polyester plant for Polyplex Corporation, Ltd., an India-based manufacturer of high performance plastic films. O'Neal provided design and onsite program management services for the $187 million project.

The facility is located in the Mallard-Fox Industrial Park. The plant began operation in the 4th quarter of 2012. Polyplex produces thin plastic films used primarily in the food packaging industry.

This polyester film plant includes a high speed 8.7 meter wide BOPP (bi-axially oriented polypropylene) line and feedstock resin plant of 60,000 metric tons. The plant will be completed in two phases; phase I will consist of the thin-film polyester line and resin plant, and phase 2 will contain another PET film line.

Together, this facility will be Polyplexs largest capital investment in any single location.
