Sun Chemical has opened a $30 million production centre in Turkey to cater to increased demand from Turkey and the Middle East for solvent-based flexible packaging products.
The 50,000sqm site emp-loys over 90 staff and is dedicated to the production of solvent-based inks serving both local and international customers. The multi-million dollar investment provides a brand new state of the art production facility, which is fully automated with the latest equipment and technology.
Says Arinc Aktan, general manager at Sun Chemical Turkey: “The new facility will be a hub for our solvent-based inks serving customers direc-tly as well as other Sun Chemical sites in Turkey, the surrounding territories and the Middle East. Splitting our solvent and water-based plants means that we can meet the increased demand from the flexible packaging sector and serve both sets of customers efficiently.”
Sun Chemical has split the sites to provide dedicated premises for both its solvent and water-based products.
