A look at the future: Brückner attended PlastPack East Africa

For the first time Brückner took part in the PlastPack East Africa Exhibition in Nairobi, Kenya, from 13th to 15th July 2011. Above all, flexible packaging converters from different countries used the show to get information about the latest technologies in film production and processing.


The Brückner booth was busy throughout all three days of the exhibition, with lively conversations with old and new business acquaintances from various countries including the newly founded Republic of Southern Sudan, South Africa, India, Uganda, Kenya, Nigeria and many others.


Visitors' main interest was in the production of BOPP and CPP films, both of which see growing demand in the East African region. Currently, several big converters are importing increasing amounts of packaging grade BOPP. Apart from food packaging the main application especially in Kenya and Uganda is flower wrap.
