TKM Turnkey Movement is a Dutch company specialized in industrial relocations from location A to B (worldwide) or internal. Their technicians assist with the (dis)assembly of machines, installations and/or production lines.

For one of their customers, they had to move a blow molding machine (bottle making machine). In this machine, extrusion blow molding (EBM), plastic is melted and extruded into a hollow tube (a glass lump). This preformed glass is then collected by closing it in a cooled metal mold. The next step is blowing air into the glass preform and inflating is into the shape of the hollow bottle, tube or container.


Turnkey Movement ensures that the customer's production is back on track as soon as possible. In these difficult COVID times TKM adapts quickly and they know exactly how to turn this challenge into success. With their worldwide expertise and their own experienced technicians, they know exactly how to handle Holmatro lifting equipment. Reliability of the Holmatro hydraulic equipment is very important for TKM.
