Austrian carton packaging for Iranian cigarettes

The Austrian Mayr-Melnhof Group, a titan of the carton and packaging industry, has been active in Iran since 2009 and is now expanding further.

The Mayr-Melnhof Group has been producing carton packaging in Iran since 2009 and is now making use of developments in the market to expand its activities.

“Our facility in Tehran is set to grow by 8000 to 10,000 square metres,” announced Wilhelm Hörmanseder, CEO of the folding box and carton manufacturer – and now work is already under way to make this expansion a reality. MM’s ultra-modern packaging site produces top-quality carton packaging with both offset and gravure printing, primarily for major cigarette manufacturers.

The company also resumed exporting cartonboard to Iran in 2016. MMK-WHAG was established in 2010 by the Austrian companies ‘Mayr-Melnhof Karton’ and ‘Wilfried Heinzel AG’, with the aim of providing customers with a wide variety of cartonboard and paper products as well as a range of services.

The joint venture company has demonstrated a high degree of commitment to the Iranian market and has made a good name for itself in the local paperboard and packaging industry. As an industry partner, it is able to offer a broad range of products from its local distribution facilities, as well as providing customised technical support and optimised customer service.
