The purpose of the establishment of MEKTA MAKİNE SANAYİ VE TİCARET A.Ş. is to combine the blow molding machines that it has been manufacturing with the experience and know-how of EKTAM MAKİNE SANAYİ VE TİCARET A.Ş which is another member of the same group of companies, who has been manufacturing and installing all kinds of beverage and liquid bottling equipment to its extensive domestic and international portfolio of clients for more than 40 years.
Over the years, the developments, especially in the PET and similar packaging markets have been and is still being closely monitored by our company. Until recently, we have observed that the consumer demand in the market for the Blow Molding Machine, which produces bottles from PET Preform, which we have been importing from our foreign partners, has increased rapidly and so, we have decided to manufacture this machine in our country, considering these demands and added values. In this context, the search for Knowledge and Experience Capital on Blowing Machine Technology, which is also known as "Intellectual Capital", which constitutes the most important capital of the companies, was started 5 years ago. With our team, which has a communication culture based on mutual trust and respect, Design studies were started in 2016 as an office activity.
By 2018, by combining the existing technical information with the applicative experiences, all the components whose designs were prepared and the technical specifications were specified, were supplied. The first Blow Molding Machine, also known as the Prototype, was created with the support of the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey's "Technology and Innovation Support Programs Directorate's 1501 practice", and its Technical Presentations during the progress of the project were made.
The blow molding machine, which has been completed, was tested for a long time under real operating conditions and by installing auxiliary facilities such as High Pressure Air and Cooling Unit, by using the preforms provided. Subsequently, visual presentations were made to our clients from various industries, and in line with the results obtained, orders for machines with different number of molds were received and the manufacturing and commissioning work is currently ongoing.
