Etimag is a leading Turkish printer, converter and manufacturer that specialises in shrink sleeve applications. To complement its product portfolio, the daughter company PlasMag Plastik Film Ambalaj Sanayi A.Ş. was founded this year. As first strategic action PlasMag has teamed up with Brückner Maschinenbau and ordered a state-of-the-art shrink film line.
The 3-layer MOPET-G line is 4.2m wide, has a yearly capacity of 6,600 tons and is able to produce shrink films within a thickness range of 20 to 70 µm. MOPET-G film is the main solution for full body sleeves, secure tamper-evident packaging or trendy labels. According to the plan of PlasMag, the new production line will be operational by late 2022 at the company’s top-modern premises near Istanbul.
Brückner’s shrink film technology for various high-class applications
Founder Mehmet Hilmi Okur says: “This investment is a milestone not only for us but for the entire Turkish film and packaging industry and of course also for our region, as this project provides jobs for 80 to 100 people. With this meaning it was clear for us that our project partner has to be experienced and successful in the shrink film business. So, we came together with Brückner and we now see our high expectations completely fulfilled. We are really looking forward to the next project steps.”
Helmut Huber, COO Brückner Maschinenbau, adds: “We have been in talks with Etimag for a long time. Now we are very happy and proud that our relationship culminates in this first MOPET-G project for Turkey.”
