10.4m BOPP line for Saudi Arabian long-term partner

Gulf Packaging Industries and Brückner Maschinenbau teamed up again: A state-of-the-art 10.4m BOPP line will be added to the manufacturing complex in Jubail Industrial City, Saudi Arabia, in autumn 2022. This expansion is part of Gulf Packaging’s growth strategy for the region.

Nader AlDakheel, Gulf Packaging’s Chief Executive, said: “We are excited about our new expansion and we will continue on our growth path to serve our customers regionally and globally. We are on a journey to diversify our products and are confident that we will bring new sustainable packaging solutions to the region with a positive environmental impact.”

Helmut Huber, COO Brückner Maschinenbau, added: „We are very proud and happy to continue our really longstanding partnership with Gulf Packaging Industries. Within the last 30 years we realized five joint BOPP projects, with the size, speed and output of the production lines steadily increasing. The latest line now agreed upon is consequently the fastest, widest and most powerful – and it is completely customized to the needs of Gulf Packaging. We are confident that this project will further strengthen Gulf Packaging’s position in the world of leading BOPP film producers”. 

Established in 1989, Gulf Packaging grew from a single 4m BOPP line to become a world recognized supplier of quality films. Today, GPIL is one of the largest producers of BOPP in the MEA region and exports its products to over 70 countries around the globe.
