Glad to declare that this project is not limited with our shops in Turkey but is valid at our shops outside of Turkey. We believe that our first step will be an inspring and good example for all the other companies having large amount of PE bag consumptions.” stated Mr. Ersan Arcan, General Manager of ATÜ.

Sancell introduced EPI technology to its range of Air Bubble Cushioning products 2 years ago to provide an Environmentally Friendly Packing option to our customers. Since our introduction to EPI we have had excellent support in developing our range to achieve the balance of providing a product which did not compromise in performance as a Protective Packaging and achieve our expectations in its environmental impact.
We have been able to offer our customers excellent support data provided by EPI to satisfy the skeptics, along with test results demonstrating the effectiveness of the EPI additive. The EPI additive has been very easy to process with no adjustment to our production equipment. Sancell has experienced a significant increase in sales since the introduction of the EPI range and is now viewed as the clear option for Environmentally Friendly Protective Packaging in the Australian Market.
