Germany-based Mauser Group, an industrial packaging producer, has announced the opening of its new production facility Turkey Mauser IBC in Gebze/Kocaeli, Turkey.
The company states that the location is more convenient for customers in Southern and Eastern Europe as well as in the Middle East to source composite intermediate bulk containers (IBC).
The amount invested in the new venture has not been revealed by the company.
“After the successful addition of plastic drum production in recent years, and the continuous success of steel drums, the investment in a new IBC production line was the next logical step to serve our customers in the region even better,” said Ali Özbudak, general manager of Mauser Turkey.
Following the installation of the IBC production line, first deliveries were shipped to customers in January, says Mauser.
The location near Istanbul places Mauser products within a fast-growing region and supports the company's plans to expand globally with its customers, the company said.
