Turkish PlasMag strives for a new level in shrink film production

11 Jan 2021

New MOPET-G line for an enhanced product portfolio

Etimag is a leading Turkish printer, converter and manufacturer that specializes in shrink sleeve applications. To complement their product portfolio, the daughter company PlasMag Plastik Film Ambalaj Sanayi A.Ş. was newly founded this year. As first strategic action PlasMag now 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 it will go into production late 2022 at the companies top-modern premises near Istanbul. 

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.”
