CCL Industries, a company specialising in packaging solutions for the consumer products and healthcare industries, is appointing a new licence holder for shrink sleeve labels in Turkey.

Dekopak Ambalaj Sanayi started business in 2005 and is headed by entrepreneur Peter Zegir. The company is based in Istanbul and manufactures sleeve labels for multinational customers in the region.

The licence agreement is effective January 1, 2012 and provides for the transfer of CCL technologies and the cooperation of both companies to leverage supplier and customer relationships. Dekopak will change its trading name to CCL-Dekopak and will operate under CCL Label's corporate identity system.

CCL-Dekopak will complement CCL's existing European sleeve label operations in Austria, France and the UK.

Geoffrey Martin, president and CEO, said: "We have known and admired Peter's business for some time and are very pleased we have finally been able to cement this new relationship."

Peter Zegir, managing director of CCL-Dekopak, said: "We are excited to have the support of the world's largest label company to bring new technologies to this fast growing emerging country that bridges Europe and Asia."

With headquarters in Toronto, Canada, CCL Industries now employs approximately 6,300 people in 68 plants globally located to meet the sourcing needs of large international customers.
