Dear Reader,
The year 2012 will be remembered as an important milestone for Taghleef in growth and international expansion.
Last May, exactly 4 years after merging with Radici Film, we have completed our merger with AET Films becoming one of the
world’s largest BoPP manufacturers.
Our shareholders ambition is still not to be “number one” in the market, but rather to continue following a coherent vision of
the business model developed over a decade ago. Our slogan “Packaging Solutions Worldwide” reflects this vision. In fact, Ti is
convinced that the packaging market requires players that deliver products around the world to fulfill demand in a market that has
truly turned global. Global doesn’t necessarily mean with equal product requirements but certainly with consistent high levels of
technical, customer service and delivery performance. Today, more than ever before, the plastic film industry requires either the
converters or films manufacturers to take the responsibility of this globalization project.
This is only possible if an organization can guarantee active market participation in all of the geographic locations by offering a
complete and innovative product portfolio.
For all these reasons, the logic inmergingwithAETbecame very clear. AET is unquestionably a leader in theAmericas, complimenting
the Ti global footprint expansion initiative.
The broad product portfolio enriches our current BoPP films range with films such as: roll-fed shrink labels, high water vapor and
oxygen barrier films and highly specialized films for decorative applications in the furniture industry. Their organization also has two
state-of-the-art R&D centers which will permit us to ensure our customers maintain competitive and technological advantages over
the competition.
What we also have learned is that AET is a team of friends and professionals who share the same mission to supply the market
with a world-class manufacturing and service organization as we do here at Ti. I am pleased to have AET Films as a part of the Ti
community and I look forward to working with all of you.
Warm Greetings,
Detlef Schuhmann

CEO
