By expanding operation capacity, MAUSER will be able to produce 120 liter as well as 220 liter open top drums at its plant in Istanbul, Turkey. Later on, the company will also start to manufacture 60 liter open top drums. The production of plastic packaging is planned to be taken into operation in March 2012. To date, MAUSER has already been able to support customers in the region with plastic packaging solutions through its licensee network. As the license agreement for plastic packaging solutions was coming to an end, MAUSER decided to extend its own operation activities. However, the license agreement with the Turkish manufacturer Deren Ambalaj will remain in place for the supply of IBCs into the local market.
“The Turkish market is very important to MAUSER. With this investment, we will be able to deliver a wider range of industrial packaging solutions to our customers and meet the needs of the pharmaceutical and agricultural sectors,” says Ali Ã–zbudak, Managing Director of MAUSER Turkey and Russia. “For MAUSER, this opens up new opportunities in the region.”
Besides the new line for plastic drums in Istanbul, MAUSER Turkey is also present in the country with “MAUSER Ambalaj Sanayi ve Ticaret A.ª.” for steel packaging solutions, and the reconditioning subsidiary “NCG Metal ve Plastik Ambalaj Yenileme Sanayi ve Ticaret A.ª.”. MAUSER Turkey is one of the leading steel drum manufacturers in the region and produces large cylindrical drums, large conical drums and a wide range of small steel drums from 18 to 60 liters (conical and cylindrical). With the production of plastic packaging solutions from March 2012, MAUSER Turkey complements its product portfolio to meet the Turkish market requirements.
