DERPROSA
in Latin America: Two decades
Dear Customers, Dear Colleagues,
For this edition of
Ti
News, we chose a bold Pop Art style cover. Did it get your attention?
At Taghleef, I challenge our organization to ensure that “wow” extends beyond our products
to the way we do business. We aren’t satisfied with great customer service; we are focused
on exceptional customer engagement. We don’t just talk sustainability; we’re committed to
driving the industry toward the Circular Economy. We don’t just produce films solutions;
we engineer them, constantly improving our existing offerings and introducing new films
that go beyond meeting technical and industrial demands. This is why brand owners and
packaging designers choose Taghleef products: our films enable that “wow” factor that
makes products and packaging stand out among the competition.
Within this issue, we both describe and use these films. For example, our cover uses DERPROSA
SANDY
ORIGINAL film, emphasizing the Pop Art design with tactile and visual appeal. You will also read about how
we enable our customers to fulfill their promise to support the Circular Economy through products such as
our NATIVIA
®
BOPLA films. Our mono-material packaging films also support the fulfillment of this promise by
allowing fully recyclable flexible packaging.
The bold and bright cover of this edition also signals some exciting developments happening at
Ti
. For example,
we are in the process of significant regional growth within the Americas as Biofilm joins our team. In welcoming
Biofilm to the Taghleef Group, we secure our position as a leading supplier of BOPP films in Latin America and
throughout the world, increasing annual production capacity to more than 500,000 tons. By joining their highly
experienced and trained workforce with ours, we will reach higher grounds in product, production, and technical
service that will benefit Ti’s existing clients and the new ones we gain from Biofilm.
With this regional growth, Taghleef increases its global reach. We now have manufacturing operations in 11
countries: Colombia, Mexico, USA, Canada, Italy, Hungary, Spain, Egypt, UAE, Oman, and Australia. We are
positioned to provide a consistent supply of specialty films worldwide as well as proactive and responsive
technical support to customers across six continents.
In the following pages, we share even more news about what’s on the horizon for Ti and how our company
continues to grow and evolve in innovative ways. I personally invite you to engage with Taghleef—our people,
our products, and our services. In partnership with you, we deliver the “wow” you and your customers expect.
