We are proud to produce plastic containers that are desirable and satisfactory for our customers by utilizing the latest technology.
Research and Development (R&D)
In the research and development unit of the Sapel company, we follow two overall goals to ensure quality and technology. First, conducting developing and practical research to create new products using available technologies in the Sapel company. Secondly, continuous improvement of production and operational processes, as well as continuous improvement of the features of the production and plastic packaging containers.
Research and development are items that lead to positive evolutions in organizations and the creation of innovative businesses. Businesses, including Sapel, are moving toward internationalization, and research and development have a direct effect on all dimensions, including standard level and market share. Therefore, research development is one of our priorities.
