Socipack was created in 2016 in Abidjan, Ivory Coast. The company operates within several plastics segments, including film extrusion, injection, blow molding, and woven sacks. Socipack was created to produce high-quality flexible packaging for the West African region.
In the beginning, this was done by acquiring a couple of complete CI flexo lines with inline finishing, as well as 5-layer co-extrusion film production machinery.
Immediately, the label market was also targeted. A fully equipped 8-color Nilpeter FA-6* flexo press was installed in 2017. And after installation, Hassan Abdallah, general manager, stated that market needs would lead to a second press in the near future. In 2019, the company’s second Nilpeter 22” wide FA-Line landed in Abidjan. This time a 10-color press was added to meet the increasing capacity of labels in this market. Today, Socipack is running the two Nilpeter lines in three shifts.
Socipack’s customers are benefiting from the company’s shrink-sleeve capabilities in primary packaging, food packaging, and more. The company utilizes multiple technologies, from holographic effects to high-quality finishing.
