Bangladesh’s very first BOPP film production line’s specifications are impressive – 8.7 metres working width, 450 metres a minute production speed for an annual output capacity of up to 40,000 tonnes. The line will produce a variety of the finest polypropylene packaging films and is especially equipped for the manufacture of sophisticated cigarette film. This neatly compliments and completes the Akij Group’s cigarette business – they now have everything in their own hands, from production to packaging.

Packaging South Asia is the cooperating media partner for drupa 2016 which is scheduled to be held from 31 May to 10 June at Dusseldorf, Germany
