Netpak, which has been producing for about 40 years in the packaging industry, starts with the production of plastic bags and then follows the trends in the world and moves on to the production of nonwoven bags, which is an alternative product to plastic bags. Netpak Ambalaj Chairman of the Board of Directors Ali Avcı pointed out that they received their first patent in 2011 and said that they currently have 42 patents and 30 utility models.In addition to producing and developing environmentally friendly products, production technologies and machines in-house, Netpak started to produce technology in national and international markets with the technology company Ultrapak, which it established in 2017. According to this research, in the Global Reusable Bag Market research published in the USA, important statistics were given about the company, the market situation, size, share, growth factors of the Reusable Bag; Netpak, which carries out all processes, including machine production, is among the players that will grow rapidly in the sector within the scope of work, competitive environment, sales and revenues. Shown as one of the top five companies that will grow rapidly until 2027, Netpak Ambalaj started its R&D studies in 2005 and launched its ultrasonic welding and automation system machines, and recyclable carrying bags after printing on nonwoven and pp woven fabrics produced with polypropylene (PP) raw material. it took.
CONTINUES STABLE R&D WORKS
Expressing that they are working with the Ultrapak Makina brand on machine production, Avcı said, “We are focused on the sale of the machines we produce. We make our own technology in the field of machinery. We are the first company to make a carrying case by combining it with ultrasonic welding, we got the patent for this work in 2011. Shopping bags produced in the Far East by hand sewing method have become widespread all over the world and our country does not get enough share from this market.” Underlining that they have 42 patents and 30 utility models at their point, Avcı stated that they have been continuing their R&D studies steadily since 2005 and said, “Being aware of our strong infrastructure in this newly developing sector, we will focus on new products to emerging markets and our efforts to expand our markets in unused geographies.

In this context, the product is more environmentally friendly than other plastics. On the other hand, we make our own machines in production processes. In this regard, we are one step ahead of our competitors abroad in terms of efficiency. We provide a significant increase in our export rate and market share both with the nonwoven bags we produce and the ultrasonic technology we have developed.” Pointing out that they export to 40 countries in total, Avcı said that they work with almost all chain stores in the domestic market, and that the general kilogram export amount of Turkey is between $3.50 and $4.
