Thoughts and News on High Visibility Packaging

Istanbul, Turkey July 3th 2009 – Viko Electric switches to cold seal blister packaging.

Since the fresh start of Ecobliss Blisterproducts in Turkey, Viko is the first company in Turkey that has switched from heat seal blister packaging to cold seal blister packaging. At this moment already more than 35 different products are being packed in the Ecobliss cold seal card-to-card (with trapped blister) system. The new cold seal packaging has been very well received, internally as well as by Viko’s customers and many more of their products will be packed using cold seal technology.

Important reason for Viko to switch their packaging was the fact that with the cold seal technology the packaging process has become much more simple and controllable. On top of that the beautiful high quality appearance of the packaging enhances the products of Viko very much so they will be noticed better in the shelf of DIY markets and retailers.

For packing Viko uses different cold sealing machines. The largest part of their production is being packed on ERP-350/450 equipment and for smaller batches also EJR Jiggle Rollers are being used.

Viko Elektrik ve Elektronik End. San. Tic. Aş is the largest Turkish producer of electrical components for home and industrial applications such as electrical light switches, gang sockets, fuse boxes, electric meters etc.
