In a shift of ownership among water-soluble film companies, MonoSol LLC has purchased a British blown extrusion film plant from Aquafilm LLC. MonoSol bought Aquafilm's Hartlebury, England, plant, in a sale announced April 13 for undisclosed terms. The purchase gives Portage, Indiana-based MonoSol its first European presence and allows the company to broaden its processing expertise to include both cast and blown extrusion film, said MonoSol chief executive officer P. Scott Bening on April 15.
