The KKT company, whose turnover is around 17 million euros is specialized in the manufacturing of packaging solutions by Injection Stretch Blow Molding, Extrusion Blow Molding and Co-Extrusion Blow Molding. The company has a production site in Kall and delivers to food, cosmetic and chemical industries. KKT has sold more than 140 million products in 2015.
