Hurricane Harvey

The the very best in humanity

Hurricane Harvey has changed the Texas landscape forever, but it's also brought out the very best in humanity. Strangers helping strangers without any motive except to do the right thing because it's the right thing to do.

On behalf of our extended family of employees, friends and loved ones, Next Generation Films is donating $20,000 to humanitarian relief efforts through the Calhoun County chapter of the United Way.

No amount of money can replace what's been lost, but through our gift, we hope to join others in providing some small measure of financial relief to those caught-up in the middle of this catastrophic event.

Our hopes, thoughts and prayers are for a fast and full recovery. Your neighbors up north at NEXT have got your back!

Next! Next Generation orders another 3-layer line from W&H

Next Generation Films (Lexington, OH) has ordered another 3-layer blown-film line from Windmoeller & Hoelscher Corp. with an addition system being specified out. The latest system will be a three-layer Varex with a 134-inch working width, grooved feed extruders (105.30/135.30/105.30D), Optifil P3 gauge-control system, Opticool high-output air ring and a 35.43-inch Maxicone C die.

Next is renovating a new 175,000-sq-ft building, which when completed, will have 12 bays, standing both eight and ten stories tall. These bays will house existing and new blown-film equipment.

By the end of 2014, Next owner Dave Frecka expects to have 12 extrusion lines in operation in the new facility. Current company turnover is estimated at $245 million and Frecka projects sales will exceed $350 million by mid-2015. That's up more than 300% from five years ago, when Next's sales were $100 million.
