Lindal Group opens new facility in Turkey

The LINDAL Group, a worldwide provider of aerosol packaging technology, has announced the creation of its newest facility in Turkey.

According to Francois-Xavier Gilbert, CEO, Lindal Group, work on this production and office complex, located east of Istanbul (Dilovasi – KOCAELIProvince), represents the latest milestone in the growth of this innovative 57-year old packaging solutions provider.

“This is a proud moment for all of us in the Lindal Group family,” Gilbert said. “Our latest addition will handle the manufacture of our innovative aerosol solutions, including valves, actuators and inserts and, soon, BOVs and custom molding. Further, the new plant will support regional and multinational customers, as well as contract fillers headquartered in the vibrant Turkish market and, eventually, throughout the region.”

This latest Lindal Group expansion is part of the company’s strategy for delivering profitable, sustainable growth through superior customer service. Similarly, the recent openings of Lindal’s Global Innovation Center in Briey, its new Itupeva, Brazil expansion, and recent investments in Mexican operations, are further examples of the company’s customer-first focus, Brand said.

“Our new Turkish facility will enhance supply chain efficiencies and provide superior product quality, service and support needed to help our customers meet their goals,” added Bernd Wucherpfennig, General Manager, Lindal Turkey Paketleme Ltd. Şti. “In addition, we are very happy that Uenal Varol, with his enormous experience in filling and BOV production, joined LINDAL Turkey this year.

“Our Turkish facility is a strategic addition that ensures our place in this increasingly important market, where East literally meets West,” he said.

The LINDAL Group develops and manufactures valves, actuators and spray caps for aerosol products used in pharmaceutical, cosmetics and food applications.
