The economic society "Mahmal Zip" is part of a large holding, which is located in Turkmenistan. It was founded by young progressive specialists who wanted to bring the quality of beverage production in Turkmenistan to the European standard level. In 2014, Mahmal Zip became team part of the German brand Sinalco. At the moment, the Sinalco representative in Turkmenistan produces a range of drinks that meet European standards and flavors. The assortment of Sinalco Turkmenistan includes such drinks as Sinalco Cola, Sinalco Orange, Sinalco Zitrone, Sinalco Jump and Sinalco Fresco. A special line for the market of Turkmenistan "Sinalco ÝEKE TÄK" was also developed, which successfully conquered the market on a par with other drinks from Sinalco, and to this day is sold in all markets of the capital and not only. Today the company employs up to 100 people.
The magic began in 1902 with celebrated naturopath Friedrich Eduard Bilz and the visionary industrialist and beverage expert Franz Hartmann creating Bilz-Lemonade. They wanted to make a drink that would support workers with hydration, vitamins and revitalising flavours. We’re still on the same mission today: to bring refreshment to everyone. Our name has become synonymous with quality, taste and refreshment, and wherever in the world you see our iconic logo, you know you’ve chosen a product that embodies these values.
1905 to 1963
In 1905, after a competition to choose the name, Sinalco emerged. The name was inspired by the Latin “sine alcohole” (without alcohol) and registered as a worldwide trademark. In 1937 the “Red Dot” logo was developed, making Sinalco instantly recognisable worldwide. 1950 saw the creation of the classic Sinalco bottle – a revolutionary design that boosted the brand to become a household name into the 1960s.
1964 to 2000
Throughout the Swinging Sixties, Sinalco became a soft drink of choice in Europe. In 1979 the legendary jingle, “Die Sinalco schmeckt” was adopted as the sound of Sinalco. It’s a sound that still swings, as it’s fondly remembered across Germany. Here, after the advertising success of the jingle and with our iconic bottle, Sinalco was virtually synonymous with lemonade. Throughout the latter half of the 20th-century, we kept our distinctive “Red Dot” logo and expanded even further across Europe and the rest of the world. Even with a facelift of our bottle to celebrate the millennium, our “Red Dot” stayed at the heart of our identity.
2001 to 2009
Täze müňýyllygyň ruhuna eýerip, dünýä üçin täze we tolgundyryjy tagam öwüşginlerini bermek üçin Sinalco kompaniýasy XXI asyryň ilkinji ýyllaryny önümleriniň görnüşlerini giňeltmeklige başlady. 2005-nji ýylda biz öz 100 ýyllygymyzy belledik. 2007-nji ýyldan Sinalco “Germaniýanyň standartlary” birleşigi tarapyndan “Asyryň markasy” diýlip ykrar edildi.
2010 until today
In 2010, as we entered a new decade, it was time to adapt our brand image for a new age, and our famous “Red Dot” got a 3D makeover to bring it up to date without losing the heritage look. Our logo may have had a makeover, but our mission and the quality of our recipes stayed the same – as ever, Sinalco remains true to itself.
