Ampac Flexibles, the flexible packaging division of Ampac Packaging, LLC, and PROPAC Industrial Pty Ltd, have announced a partnership to bring integrated, solutions-based liquid hot fill packaging systems to the North American market.
The collaboration between Ampac Flexibles and PROPAC will provide packagers with Vertical Form Film Seal (VFFS) systems combining Ampac’s Apex 9000 VF series films and PROPAC’s state of the art VFFS packaging machines. Ampac and PROPAC will be demonstrating the joint VFFS system capabilities at PACK EXPO 2008 in Chicago.
“This partnership results in a complete, high performance, liquid hot fill packaging system. It also offers North American packagers a new, lower cost option for packaging liquids,” says Sal Pellingra, innovation and marketing director for Ampac Flexibles. “In addition to the capabilities of the highly engineered film and packaging equipment, the partnership offers a new level of personal service to packagers.”
According to the companies, ideal market applications are products where liquid containment and maintaining the integrity of key product properties is critical. With the ability to perform one or two part fill, the Propac VFFS systems can accommodate products from tomato sauces and fruit purées, to pickles in brine and soups or stews, providing an optimum system for retail, food service, restaurant, and institutional applications.
