September 20, 2021 - Mauser Packaging Solutions, a global leader in solutions and services across the packaging life cycle, is making significant investments in state-of-the-art equipment to expand its IBC and plastic drum production capabilities at its Gebze, Turkey facility. These investments will also further support the collection and supply of reconditioned packaging in the region.
Installation of a new plastic drum line is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2021, followed by the installation of a new blow molding machine for Intermediate Bulk Container (IBC) bottles in early 2022. These investments will allow Mauser Packaging Solutions to better serve customers and meet heightened local market demand for new and reconditioned IBCs and plastic drums.
