Investments at Gebze, Turkey's facility will boost manufacturing capabilities to match the industry's and market's increasing demands.

FREMONT, CA: Mauser Packaging Solutions is expanding its IBC and plastic drum production capacity at its Gebze, Turkey factory by investing heavily in cutting-edge technology. These initiatives will also help to expand the region's collection and supply of refurbished packaging. In the fourth quarter of 2021, a new plastic drum line will be installed, followed by the installation of a new blow moulding machine for Intermediate Bulk Container (IBC) bottles in early 2022. Mauser Packaging Solutions will be able to serve clients better and fulfill increased local market demand for new and reconditioned IBCs and plastic drums as a result of these developments.

“This investment demonstrates our ongoing commitment to further expand our footprint in the region and partner with our customers to provide unmatched quality and customer service,” said Gulsen Olcay, General Manager of the facility.

The site expansion will not only support customer growth strategies but will also provide further support for the growing export markets in the Middle East and Eastern Europe as a key supplier of industrial packaging solutions to Turkey and the surrounding region, which includes countries such as Greece, Bulgaria, Egypt, Jordan, Israel, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia.

In 1974, the Gebze Turkey factory, located 50 kilometers from Istanbul, began producing steel drums. Plastic drums and IBCs, as well as reconditioning services, have been added to the site's capabilities and product portfolio during the last 45 years. The facility is also ISO 22000 certified for food safety, which is an internationally recognized standard for packaging that meets the highest levels of cleanliness and sanitation.
