Who we are

We are a 100% Mexican company,

and we are leaders in the manufacture of biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP).

Altopro is a privately owned Mexican producer of biaxially oriented polypropylene film and has been conscientiously serving the flexible packaging industry for 30 years. The solid foundation of providing flexible packaging films to the food industry has led to many new and highly specialized film types in clear, pearlescent, white, matte, metallized, oxo-degradable, antifog, and high barrier films, to name a few.

A sincere commitment to Technical Service, Product Development, and Quick Response has led to many specialty films - and many very satisfied customers. There is a well-developed philosophy of service and productivity based on techniques, such as Lean Manufacturing and Lean Six Sigma, to manage Quality and Safety.

Altopro S. A. de C. V., began operations in March of 1985 in Mexico City, MX, and as demand increased for both commodity and specialty products by 1997, a subsidiary, Altopro Inc. in Houston, TX, was established to better serve North American customers. At about the same time, ISO 9001 certification was achieved.

Since then, Altopro has doubled capacity twice: Once, with an expansion in Mexico City and again in 2009 with the acquisition of a new site and a fourth orienter in Irapuato, Guanajuato, MX.

Capacity is now at 70,000 tons per year and, with the start-up of a fifth orienter, will increase by 35% at the end of 2016. Metallization capacity is currently at 10,000 tons per year.
