US- based A. Schulman, a high-performance plastics compounds supplier, is planning to open a new masterbatch plant in Istanbul, Turkey, according to a press release on the company’s website. The company will spend approximately €5-7 million to convert an existing industrial facility in Istanbul to a state-of-the-art production plant to fit its intended use.

The plant is slated to have a production capacity of around 20,000 tons (40 million pounds) of white and breathable masterbatches for use in the food and industrial packaging sectors in Turkey and thereby in other growing countries in the Middle East and North Africa. The plant is expected to come online by the end of fiscal year of 2016.

The company reportedly stated that Turkey is a “premier gateway” for their businesses between East and West and that the country has strategic importance in increasing their market shares in other fast growing countries in the Middle East and North Africa. In addition, the company also stated that the new plant will enable them to improve service times and utilization capacities at their plant in Northern Europe, which is currently providing supply to the Turkish market.
