Manama Packaging is equipped with highly sophisticated machinery, maintained and operated by trained and well experienced technical staff. Therefore, our final products are renowned world-wide for quality as well as better performance and shelf appeal. Stated below is the comprehensive list of our processes and manufacturing capabilities.



At Manama Packaging Industry W.L.L. , we have an extensive In-house specialist graphic design setup where new designs and artwork can be worked upon. Our highly intellectual Graphics Designers take care of the customer design and its appearance from start till its finalization, allowing our customers the ease to develop or alter the artworks as per their requirements. We also provide consultation to our clients regarding their design and cliche' / Cylinders , providing any required changes in artwork where necessary to enhance their look and at the same time save development and printing costs.

This setup enables us  to provide the fastest turn around and shortest lead time in the Industry across the GCC. The facility is usually provided free of charge to our customers upon the finalization of their orders, and care is taken at each stage to ensure that the finished product is matching with the customer's specifications and color scheme.




Extrusion is a high volume manufacturing process in which raw plastic material is melted and formed into a continuous profile.

At Manama Packaging Industry W.L.L. , Extrusion includes mono layer as well as Multi-layered films of LD, LLD, HD, and PP.

We have the ability to convert granules into film ranging in thickness from 07 to 200 microns with wide range of thickness and sizes.

Co-extruded films are manufactured up to 5 layers and German made Extruders provide consistent high quality Films to suit the inherent properties of different products to be packed.





At MPI, we employ high class Rotogravure and Flexo presses, which can print up to 9 colors. The machines offer products of high quality print and our versatility allows Precision printing to ensure immense Brand Visibility.

We also have an In-house ink blending and shade matching system , using state of the art technology at our production site to ensure color matching and design profiles to be 100% defect free.

We are capable of printing on Polyethylene, Polypropylene, Polyester, Pearlized Polypropylene.





Lamination is the technique of manufacturing a material in multiple layers, so that the composite material achieves improved strength, stability, appearance or other properties from the use of differing materials.

At MPI , we have the ability to produce Solvent-Base and Solvent-less laminates for packaging materials. Cold-Seal can also be applied at the same process.

Our Solvent less and Solvent Based Lamination machines from Europe use the high quality adhesives to offer strong laminates.The machines are capable of Laminating various substrates like Opp/Mett OPP, BOPP/ Metallized CPP, Al foil /LDPE, Met PET/PE,PET/PE etc. Advanced technology in this process applied results in a high barrier and superior finish, giving enhanced shelf life.




Roll slitting, also known as log slitting or rewind slitting, is a shearing operation that cuts a large roll of material into narrower rolls.​

We have top of the line European Slitting machines, which accurately slit and wind using the flush-cut winding technology.

These slitting machines also have Precise winding and  tension control system, and is suitable for films, papers and laminates. 

Latest innovation in this process is our recently imported Slitting machine from Italy , which is capable of slitting and rewinding the plastic sheets , rolls and laminates. The machine speed is incredibly fast i.e. up to 700 meters / minute and is fully automatic featuring Core Positioning technology through laser beams.




This is usually the last stage of film manufacturing process, whereby the rolls are passed through a doctoring system to check for any printing or other defects on the face on the film. This is also used to precisely wind the roll as per the customer specification or to alter the tension in rolls.

At MPI, we have state of the art winding and rewinding machines in order to inspect the films and laminates for any defects, ensuring correction of errors at the very beginning helping us to deliver high quality packaging material which is defect free.






Bag Making is a process which transforms the flexible films into different types and shapes of bags. Our main capabilities are:

  • Center-seal Bags  & pouches
  • Courier Bags
  • Flyers and security bags
  • 2-side seal Bags
  • Stand-up & gusseted pouches with zipper facility
  • U-Shaped, Banana and Die-Cut Handles for shopping bags
  • Wicketed Bags

Our latest innovation in Bag Making section is the new German Made LEMO Wicketed Bag Making machine, which is capable of producing wicketed bags, commonly used in the diaper industry and sanitary products
