HISTORY.

PEKUFolien

PEKU is a medium-sized family business, whose focus lies on producing environmentally sustainable films and bags. Industries we are partners of include „Food“, „Hygiene“, „Garden Products“, „Industrial Applications“ and many more. Our product portfolio covers mono- and coextruded foils made out of polyethylene which are fully recyclable. Internal wastes are regranulated in our own recycling plant and reintroduced into the production cycle. On top of that, we created a brand, PEKUGreen, which uses renewable resources. PEKU is able to print all foils with up to 10 colors by using the high-end flexo printing process (Full-HD-quality).

 

Our product range includes flat films, center folded films and tubular films. In our ready made area, PEKU focuses on drawstring bags, pressure closure bags, pre-opened bags-on-a-roll, euroslot bags, wrap bags and special bags. Furthermore the company also offers simple bottom gusseted, side seam and bottom seam bags.
