Synerlink, a Paris-based Barry-Wehmiller packaging company, is strengthening its presence in the Middle East and the Persian Gulf region.

“The yogurt market is booming in this region, and through our experience and capable teams, we have what it takes to meet the needs of our customers,” says Jad Skafi, Middle East sales executive. “Many different companies in the region are seeking a partner to help grow their production while the yogurt market is going at full tilt. Synerlink offers packaging technologies that allow production and filling of cups and bottles with equipment to help reduce production costs for our customers.”

Synerlink’s form-fill-seal machines package a wide variety of food products, including salads, hummus, eggplant caviar, fruit juices, strained yogurt from camel milk and kefir.

“We offer filling solutions for products with complex textures, such as cottage cheese and salads. Several opportunities for low- and medium-rate filling units are currently underway in the area,” adds Skafi.

Moreover, Synerlink’s global offerings extend to industrial ends-of-line integrated behind the fillers, both for cups and bottles.

“We also have technicians who are native speakers of English, Arabic, French and Hindi, which helps serve our customers with easy and clear communication with their machine operators and the plant management team,” says Skafi. “Having well-diversified technicians is a very important factor in quickly ramping up and training the teams.”
