Founded in 1997, Modern Ambalaj is one of Turkey’s largest producers of corrugated packaging, operating six factories making approximately 600,000 tonnes of corrugated packaging annually. Modern is continuing to grow; the Nozomi installation at its Manisa factory, is part of the plans to help increase total production capacity to 800,000 tonnes in 2022. Additional investments at another plant in Turkey’s Sakarya province will further increase the company’s overall annual production capacity to 900,000 tonnes in 2023.
With its proven high quality and high-volume output, the EFI Nozomi single-pass system installed in Istanbul delivers single-pass inkjet corrugated printing capabilities. The C18000 Plus model includes a number of enhancements that further expand Modern Ambalaj’s offerings. The new printer also includes the latest version of the EFI Fiery® NZ 1000, an advanced digital front end print server offering significant production advantages, including exceptional colour management and a powerful Smart Ink Estimator feature that accurately analyses image data for more-precise control of ink costs.
The newly installed printer reflects Modern Ambalaj’s focus on remaining ahead of trends to help make its customers more successful. “The Turkish corrugated packaging industry needs fast and high-quality digital solutions to adopt new market demands,” said Kubilay Alkan, General Manager, Modern Ambalaj (pictured left).
“The corrugated industry continues its progression toward digital print adoption and we are excited to help continue that market transformation with Modern Ambalaj’s installation of the first EFI Nozomi printer in Turkey,” said Evandro Matteucci, Vice President and General Manager, Packaging and Building Materials, EFI. “The adoption of EFI direct-to-board inkjet printing by this outstanding and well-respected company demonstrates the value that adding high-quality digital printing to the corrugated production process can bring to even the most well-managed packaging businesses.”
