Barcelona, 3 July 2018.- This year, with its new location at Expo Santa Fe Mexico, the largest packaging and processing event in Latin America, EXPO PACK Mexico undertook to put on an exhibition without parallel in terms of size, innovation and education. And, going by the figures recorded upon its closure, it appears to have done just that. More than 1,000 exhibitors and 23,000 professionals filled the aisles of the exhibition venue in Mexico City throughout each day of this, the 32nd fair (from 5 to 8 June). They were four intense days, during which Mespack’s flexible packaging solutions constituted a focus of attraction for visitors. “Our stand welcomed more than a hundred customers, who showed their interest in the new trends in machinery and the kinds of packaging we offer, as well as in the company’s new line of wrap-around equipment”, declared Santi Alberich, Mespack’s Marketing Director.
In fact, Mespack’s new WA series for making flexible secondary packaging aroused the curiosity of the visitors (especially multinationals and companies in the maquila sector), who were able to discover how “thanks to this new machine, Mespack can now offer customized solutions ranging from primary packaging, by means of HFFS and HFS (coil-based forming and filling flexible pre-packaged sachets), to the secondary packaging permitted by this new wrap-around solution. In addition, if necessary, it can cover the palletizing”, added the company’s Head of Marketing.
Mespack’s new WA series is a modern, flexible and robust machine which guarantees maximum production results while minimizing the time required for each change of format. Presented at Hispack 2018 and available for only a few months, “it’s equipped with multiple sensors to ensure proper functioning and is ideal for handling productions of up to 45 boxes per minute”, underlined Alberich, who also highlighted the excellent response to Mespack’s other solutions at the fair.
“We have horizontal machines for stand-up pouches and flat sachets, easily adaptable to manufacturers’ needs (they are built in modules) which can incorporate top and corner-cap applicators, with straw applicators for juices and zipper reclosable systems, among other features. In addition, as a result of their design, they offer easy access and control at all times”, he explained.
As for the company’s range of vertical machines for stick packs, made up of three different models, depending on the maximum width of the reel (600/1000/1200mm), “they’re perfect for single-use liquid, powders, granulates and solid products, enabling consumers to take them anywhere.”
A very important market
Asked about the importance of the Mexican event for Mespack, Alberich declared that “the showcase provided by an event like EXPO PACK Mexico is very important for us, as we’re maintaining our firm commitment to operating in the Latin American market of packaging for sauces, baby products and home care. In this regard, taking part in the 32nd fair has enabled us to fulfil our objective of reinforcing our links with our commercial network and our key accounts in Latin America and the United States, thus maintaining their trust in Mespack as a European supplier.”
