Nigerian film producer Tempo Paper Pulp & Packaging and Brückner team up again
The demand for high-quality packaging film is constantly rising in the heart of Africa, especially in Nigeria, the most populous country in Africa. Taking this into account, Nigeria’s leading producer Tempo Paper Pulp & Packaging Ltd. (Ota, Ogun State), has recently started their second BOPP film line, 8.7m wide, with an annual capacity of 42,000 tons per year.
Dr. Seun Obasanjo, CEO of the Tempo Group, says: “With our second BOPP film line, we are significantly increasing our yearly production capacity from 33,000 to 75,000 tons of high-quality films for the local packaging industry, which has come to expect the best from Tempo. Our state-of-the-art BOPP line from Brückner Maschinenbau is designed to meet the trends for recyclability and ultrahigh barrier films, also by manufacturing thicker films with advanced properties for monolayers. This enables us to fulfil new market demands and requirements.”
Tempo’s future plans include a further BO film lines expansion, a second CPP film production line and more metallizers. Tempo Group’s Deputy Managing Director Nassos Sidirofagis adds: “Our goal is to offer our customers a broad product diversity. In a sense of “one-stop-shopping” they should be able to find their packaging solutions at one place – at Tempo. And our investment strategy is long-term. We are already thinking of several investments to consolidate our position in the market. I am quite sure that Tempo together with Brückner can achieve this goal.’’
