Barcelona, 6 July 2018.- South East Asia is a very receptive market for the stick pack and stand-up pouch solutions. Products packaged with this format, such as coffees, teas, sauces and liquid detergents for refilling, have a high demand in the region, as they are practical and contribute to reducing the volume of waste. In this sense, the participation of the international flexible packaging machinery manufacturer, Mespack, at the 26th edition of Propak Asia (Bangkok, Thailand, 13 to 16 of July), has assumed a new opportunity to consolidate its portfolio for this type of packaging in a market in which the company is already a well-known brand with a wide implementation. [Mespack has more than 300 machines in operation in this region and has an office that offers local technical service. In addition, it is the main supplier of the principal multinational producers].
“Once again, Propak Asia has been a great showcase for us, as it has allowed us to strengthen, above all, the communication of our stick pack and stand-up pouch range for the packaging of food and homecare products, both liquid and in powder. Thus, on the one hand, we have promoted the reliability of our vertical stick pack machines, a line that, it must be noted, has full servo technology that offers a high degree of precision and speed. On the other hand, we have opened new opportunities regarding our stand-up pouch solution, which allows us to incorporate top and corner cap applicators, straw applicators for juices or self-closing systems with a zipper, among others,” confirmed Santi Alberich, Marketing Director of Mespack, on closing the event.
One trade fair, new opportunities
Mespack has also used the fair to promote its new laser solution and WA end of line range in a stand that, in the words of Alberich, and with more than eighty registered visits, “has been a success for the image and has allowed us to show the clear faith of our company in this fair.”
A fair which, as well as enabling the subsidiary of the Duravant Group to tighten its links with its key accounts, has provided a focus for new opportunities. The presence of Mespack at Propak Asia has been marked by the closing of two contracts in situ, a rare occurrence at an event of this type.
