Netpak Ambalaj, the leading company of tote bags, once again attracted all the attention in an interview given by Ali Avcı, Chairman of the Board of Directors, in Dünya Newspaper.
We share all the details of the news with you:
NETPAK WILL INCREASES THE LIFE OF TOTE BAGS
By 50%!In line with environmental sensitivities, there has been an increase in the demands for cloth bags. Explaining that they increased their production capacity by 300% in this period, Netpak Ambalaj Chairman of the Board Ali Avcı said, "Our products can be reused 104 times. We aim to make this number usable 150 times with our R&D studies." said.
Netpak Ambalaj, one of the top three manufacturers in Europe in the production of tote and nonwoven bags, aims to increase the service life of the products it develops as an output of its R&D studies. Operating in the Istanbul Esenyurt region, the company also plans to expand its product range. Netpak Ambalaj Chairman of the Board Ali Avcı said, “We use ultrasonic welding technology in our productions. This system is the best system combining nonwoven. We have investments in improving the durability of our products by developing this system. In this context, we aim to increase the life of any tote bag we develop by 50%.” Expressing that they want to increase their turnover by approximately 40% by the end of 2021, depending on the investments they have made, Avcı said, “We also have studies for alternative markets. Especially the US and European markets are in a very important position for us.”
INCREASED CAPACITY UP TO 90%!
Underlining that 28% of their turnover consists of export inputs, Avcı said, “We plan to increase this rate to 70%. In particular, we carried out our work for our marketing and sales team in this direction.” Explaining that they currently export to 36 countries, Avcı stated that they want to increase this number to 50 depending on the increase in environmental sensitivities. Noting that the use of cloth bags has become widespread and this situation is reflected in the capacity utilization rates as a company, Avcı said, “Our capacity utilization rates, which were around 40-50 percent, have increased to 80-90 percent. Due to the increase in production volume, we have achieved an increase of up to 300 percent in our production since the beginning of 2019. On a monthly basis, we can produce 13 million tote bags. This figure may increase according to the demands from the market.
IT PROTECTS ITS DEVELOPED PRODUCTS WITH PATENT, BRAND AND UTILITY MODEL WORKS.
Underlining that industrial property rights have an important place in the sector, Avcı said, “R&D and P&D studies are among the sine qua non of our productions. Accordingly, we have over 50 patents and utility model certificates with the systems we have developed. Noting that they have an integrated production facility, Avcı said, “As a company, we employ 150 people. At this point, we carry out the processes from the design of the products we have made to the finished product in an integrated manner with the machines we produce in our production lines.”
COMPROMISE OF PROFITS AGAINST THE INCREASE IN RAW MATERIALS PRICES!
Pointing out that the crisis regarding nonwoven fabrics during the pandemic period had a negative impact on the industry, Ali Avcı continued his words as follows: “This process still continues its impact. The use of nonwoven fabrics in mask production during the pandemic period caused the kilogram of nonwoven fabric, which we bought for 1,800 dollars a ton, to exceed 10,000 dollars. We were buying the raw material of the product we call meltblown for $3,500. Due to the explosion of demand, we could not find this product for $100,000. Currently, the reduction in raw material production is causing disruptions and delays in production processes.”
By overcoming all these difficulties, we will continue to work without giving up our determination to bring the reusable eco-friendly carrying bag sector to our country.
