Zip-Pak, An ITW Co.

Zip-Pak is the world's premier provider of resealable, flexible zipper packages.

We partner with other industry leaders to develop new package formats that meet consumer demand for convenience and ease-of-use. Zipbox®, an innovative package style that combines the stability of a carton with the convenience of a resealable flexible pouch, is the result of our collaboration. Our in-house equipment division, Zip-Pak Systems, developed the first converting machine and fill/seal cartoner to enable production of flat blanks and retail-ready packages respectively.

We recently introduced Zip360™, the first resealable side-gusseted pouch with a wide-mouth opening. Ideal for snacks, frozen foods, pet food and treats and a variety of other applications, this innovative pouch style allows consumers to easily scoop or pour contents. Zip360™ also enables full-panel graphics to maximize shelf-impact at the point of purchase.

Zip-Pak has technology and package enhancement ideas, like Zip360™ waiting to be commercialized. All we need is a willing partner. If you want to make your package more memorable and enhance your brand, contact Zip-Pak today.
