Akij Group again trust in Brückner – this time for BOPET
When Akij Group, one of Bangladesh’s largest group of companies with more than 55,000 employees, decided to enter the packaging film business some years ago, they chose Brückner Maschinenbau as their partner. Ever since the BOPP line started, it has been constantly producing high quality films with utmost efficiency, thus making Akij Group’s customers happy – in both, local and international markets. It is a real flagship project, for Akij as well as for Brückner.
Consequently, both companies team up again: Akij broaden their product portfolio with the manufacture of BOPET packaging films and go for the latest stretching line technology from Brückner. Just one example: The revolutionary high temperature MD stretch technology ensures high quality films with unmatched physical and optical properties. The new state-of-the-art line provides 8.7m film width and production speeds above 500 m/min. These are only sheer numbers. Just as significant is the fact that with this investment Akij Group is again spearheading the Bangladesh market – this time for oriented polyester film.
For Brückner it is a great vote of confidence. The entire company is very proud and looks forward to this project.
