Turkish Polibak is heading for further expansion – with Brückner at its side

Polibak has decided to invest in a new, flexible and highly productive 8.7m wide Brückner BOPP line


For many years now the Turkish economy has been one of the fastest growing economies in Europe. The country’s packaging industry has a long tradition, with the Bakioğlu Holding Group being one of its most successful members. Within the group, Polibak Plastik Film is a leading European film producer with an annual capacity of 80,000 tons of BOPP, 15,000 tons of metallized BOPP and 3,000 tons of CPP film. 35% of the production is exported, mainly to Europe but also to the USA.


Renowned for the fine quality of a wide variety of BOPP specialty films, Polibak is a proven supplier of international brand owners and converters. To further strengthen its position, Polibak has now decided to invest in a new, flexible and highly productive 8.7m wide high speed BOPP film production line – and they chose Brückner as its partner for the upcoming project.


Polibak’s General Manager Ali Ҫalişkan said: „To meet our customers’ demands for more high quality films we will now take the next step and expand our Izmir plant with another BOPP line. We decided to go with Brückner because their quality standards are as ambitious as ours and especially their high speed line references are absolutely convincing. We are sure that this joint project will assure our future success in both domestic and export markets.”
