LC Packaging’s production facility Dutch-Bangla Pack Ltd. (DBPL) has completed the build of a third expansion on its factory premises. The new facility is built on top of the existing factory and will increase production with approximately 1 million FIBCs (Big Bags) per year, bringing DBPL’s total outcome to well over 3.2 million FIBCs. The new facility of 4,000 sqm has world class facilities, including a state-of-the-art clean room environment, ensuring that all pollutants are filtered out so the DBPL facility meets the highest standards required to produce FIBCs. The new factory also houses areas for cutting - both heat and ultrasonic, printing, sewing, baling and storage. Building work started in November 2020 and, upon completion, all 1,500 DBPL employees were invited to the opening ceremony, followed by an inauguration programme.
We believe that a perfect big bag is much more than just a high-quality bag. The FIBCs at DBPL are therefore produced sustainably, in an outstanding facility and by the best people who work and live under good conditions. DBPL differs from many other factories thanks to its astonishing working conditions with above average living wage salaries and regular training programs for continuous development of employees, which is acknowledged by the SA8000 certificate. DBPL’s employee commitment programme, in line with LC Packaging’s own policies, ensures that there is access to regular health checks, free daycare and a competitively priced shop within the factory premises.
Dutch-Bangla Pack Ltd. (DBPL) is a joint venture company established in 2007. LC Packaging holds 50% of the shares while the remining 50% are held by local shareholders. DBPL is the leading producer of FIBCs in Bangladesh that currently produces Pharma Clean, Food clean, Intermediate Clean, Industrial Clean, Laminated FIBCs and HDPE/LDPE liners.
DBPL’s commitment toward quality, safety and efficiency is not only emphasised by their employee commitment programme, but also by the certifications it has obtained, such as ISO 9001, BS OHSAS 18001, ISO 14001, FSSC 22000 and SA 8000. With the accomplishment of the aforementioned certificates, DBPL is the first and single FIBC manufacturer in the world to have achieved these certificates in unison.
