BOPP film manufacturer Treofan, Winston-Salem, N.C., formed a strategic cooperation with sales specialist Köylü Matbaa Makinaları in the area of packaging and labeling solutions. Headquartered in Istanbul, Turkey, Köylü is in partnership with Actega Terra, and is said to be the first company to provide IML coatings to the Turkish market.

The collaboration with Treofan gives local processors and producers access to a wider range of system solutions that combine BOPP films with composite materials.

“Joining forces with Köylü is another step in the implementation of our growth strategy,” says Dr. Walter Bickel, Treofan’s chief executive officer. “We’re systematically strengthening our presence in core markets, so that we can react even more flexibly to local customers’ specific needs. We also expect the partnership to further stimulate our growth in the dynamic Turkish market.”

“Collaborating with both Treofan and Actega Terra will enable us to respond to our customers’ needs even more quickly and individually in future,” adds Mahmut Köylü, founder and CEO of Köylü.
