OTP has carefully selected b-Cat as their supplier for the construction and installation of the Controlled Atmosphere (CA) facility.
After a couple of designs and meetings, a final lay-out of the CA facility has been prepared with a scoop to future extension. In first stage the facility is built with a single CA treatment chamber but with the intention to increase the capacity on a yearly base. For the extension of the capacity, b-Cat has already prepared the hardware and the system capacity is big enough to handle in total 4 CA chambers of the capacity of 500 C48 cartons each.
A separation wall is created in the warehouse to separate the incoming and clean side.
On March 12, 2014, Alliance One International Inc. announced that its Turkish subsidiary Alliance One Tütün A.Ş. (AOT) and Öz-Ege Tütün Sanayi Ve Ticaret A.Ş. (Öz-Ege) have entered into a joint venture: Oryantal Tütün Paketleme Sanayi A.Ş., (OTP) located in Torbali, Izmir Turkey.
Both AOT and Öz-Ege will contract with OTP for oriental tobacco processing and storage, while continuing to maintain separate farmer contracting, agronomy, and buying and selling operations. Turkey is the world leader for high quality aromatic oriental tobacco, a key ingredient in many cigarette blends around the globe. To drive improved value for their customers, they have developed this processing and storage joint venture in a modern and efficient facility.
