Even in this anniversary year – GIKO Verpackungen GmbH celebrates its 60th anniversary – the company continues to focus on the particular strengths of a successfully acting medium-sized privately held company that is able to react in a very quick and flexible manner to changing market conditions. The technical equipment of the company leaves (almost) nothing to be desired. Apart from standard solutions in the field of flexible packaging, the company management focuses on high quality technically demanding composite films that are used for a wide range of applications in the food and particularly in the non-food sector. A further focus is presently set in a targeted manner on high-quality resealable lidding films. To this purpose, the company uses duplex composite films as well as demanding triplex composite laminated films with excellent barrier features. The range of priorities is completed by wax coated films for twistwraps that are mostly used in the demanding confectionery industry. GIKO is one of the few European companies to operate a wax lamination line that allows partial wax lamination of small aluminium strips (55 mm).
And, of course, the careful use of resources continues to be one of the most essential parts of the GIKO company philosophy and constitutes the basis of its daily work. The combination of industrial acting and ecological thinking has a long tradition in the company. Customers are also offered the chance to actively participate in this ecological thinking - if desired, the purchase of packaging will be CO2-neutral through the acquisition of emission allowances.
