Turkish film manufacturer Polibak boosts its production

Largest BOPP line in Turkey will bring 40% increase


Polibak A.Ş., a subsidiary of Bakioğlu Holding, is one of the leading plastic film producers in Turkey and has been producing BOPP and CPP film since 1994. The company has two facilities in İzmir which have a current annual production capacity of 130,000 tons of BOPP film, 25,000 tons of metallized BOPP film, and 3,000 tons of CPP films.


To further increase their production capacity, Polibak has now signed a contract for the future largest BOPP film production line in Turkey. With 10.4m line width and production speeds up to 525m/min, the Brückner line has an output of over 7,400kg 5-layer film per hour. This boosts Polibak’s capacities by 40%.


Enver Bakioğlu, Board Member of Bakioğlu Holding and President of Polibak says: “The demand for packaging films and also different label types such as IMLs is constantly growing, in Turkey as well as abroad. With our new line we will be able to optimally serve our local and export markets. Our conscious decision for such a big line is an important element for our future strategy in respect to sustainable growth.”


Polibak’s previous joint project with Brückner was an 8.7m BOPP line with an output of 6.5 tons per hour. Up to now it is still the largest line of this kind in Turkey. The smooth course of that project made Polibak team up with Brückner again. Polibak’s General Manager Ali Çalişkan: “During our first joint project we established a really profound partnership. Continuing this successfully will be a major condition for our future success in the demanding packaging film markets.”
