ITP, an Italian manufacturer of polyolefin films for food and industrial packaging, announced the opening of its first U.S. sales office and warehouse.

The company’s North American subsidiary, ITP USA, Inc. in Pine Brook, N.J., offers on-site technical assistance and safety stock.

“We made the decision to open a sales office and warehouse in Pine Brook to be closer to our U.S. customers and to explore additional opportunities in the U.S. market,” says Nicola Centonze, owner. “We chose New Jersey based on its concentration of food companies, which gives us opportunities for growth.”

ITP currently markets its thermo-lamination films to customers in the U.S. food industry chain. The line includes a wide range of self-adhesive products and includes barrier, non-barrier and peelable thermo-lamination films. The company also markets masking films for the surface protection of consumer goods in the U.S.

“We are excited about the opening of our new sales office and warehouse in Pine Brook,” says Paola Centonze, president of ITP USA, Inc. “We look forward to the opportunity to expand our presence and product offerings in the U.S. market.”
