ITP, an Italian manufacturer of polyolefin films for food and industrial packaging, and its North American subsidiary, ITP USA, Inc., opened its first U.S. sales office and warehouse in Pine Brook, N.J.

“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’s food packaging includes sealable/resealable, easy-open, barrier, anti-fog, thermoforming and thermolamination films for a variety of consumer goods packaging and industrial applications.

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

ITP USA will initially house 5 employees, with plans to expand staff as the U.S. business grows.
