Barcelona, 18 october 2018.- From 14 to 17 October, McCormick Place in Chicago was the setting for the latest edition of PACK EXPO International, the premier packaging industry fair in the United States and an unmissable event for the international flexible packaging solutions manufacturer Mespack: “We never miss it,” confirmed Santi Alberich, the company’s Marketing Director. “PACKEXPO International is a very important fair for us, as we have more than 400 units in operation across the continent and this is a market in which we want to continue growing, especially in the food (cheeses, sauces, baby food) and homecare (detergents) segments. Thus, on this occasion, we travelled with the two pieces of equipment from our portfolio that best cover the needs of North American manufacturers as regards large-scale production and versatility. And the result was very positive”.
Indeed, both the H-540-FE6 and H-570-SCD solutions exhibited by Mespack at PACKEXPO International stoked great interest among the professionals attending the event. As Alberich explains: “The H-540-FE6 is the fastest machine for stand-up pouches in the baby food industry and has been designed to satisfy the high hygiene and safety performance demands of this industry. Thus it is able to manufacture 300-360 small format (120-200 ml) pouches per minute with a top anti-choke spout and rounded edges. This means that it is the fastest machine on the market today for this type of packaging and a solution that is not easily found, which is why it has received very positive reactions.”
“For its part, the H-570-SCD also received positive assessments,” added the company’s Marketing Director. “This high-capacity machine designed to package cereals, detergent tablets and grated cheese, among other products, is the machine that allows us to manufacture the biggest format: up to two pre-made 3 litre stand-up pouch type sachets per cycle as well as large format flat sachets. In addition, it is highly versatile and allows accessories and applications to be installed upon request,” continued Alberich.
During its participation at PACK EXPO International, Mespack received more than 350 visits and generated more than 114 high quality leads.
