The growing market for plastic bags in Turkey
Turkey is an important market for Roll-o-Matic, and the demand for machinery for production of T-shirt bags as well as bottom and star-sealed bags has been increasing over the last few years.
Roll-o-Matic has mainly supplied the Turkish plastic bag producers with machinery for production of T-shirt bags on rolls, but now the market for bottom-sealed bags for garbage is also expanding.
“Every plastic producer in Turkey knows the Delta T – we have sold many lines in the last few years – but now the market for bottom-sealed and star-sealed garbage bags is also growing, which is very exciting”, says Sven G. Schou, Roll-o-Matic’s Sales & Marketing Director.
“One of our big costumers, who already has 7 Delta T-shirt lines, has recently bought 2 Delta S lines, for production of bottom-sealed and star-sealed bags on rolls”, he tells. “They made calculations based on the sealing capacity of the Delta S and concluded that it will be the best price/performance solution for their production of garbage bags with heavy gauge film”.
Sven Schou was present at the Plast Eurasia exhibition in Istanbul in December 2014, together with Erdogan Eralp, Roll-o-Matic’s representative in Turkey, and they were busy:
“We were visited by a great number of bag producers in Turkey and had the opportunity to discuss several new projects. We are proud to notice that the Turkish producers know our equipment so well and that they have confidence in our machinery. We will follow the developments on the Turkish market with great interest”, he concludes.
