Pet companies with an interest in complete packaging solutions will be in luck at PATS Sandown in March 2017. Americk Packaging has announced plans to attend the trade show and showcase options for flexibles, labels and carton board packaging.
Sales director Neil Riley commented. “This is our second PATs Show and we intend to provide delegates with valuable advice as to the options, benefits and performance of a variety of packaging solutions.”
Riley continued: “Our expertise in printing and supplying reel-fed film for use in large volume automated vertical and horizontal packaging lines is proving invaluable to pet food manufacturers.
“Our award-winning print facilities can achieve stand-out designs and finishes by utilising our knowledge of print, colour management and substrates. We also see on-site support as an essential service to getting the most out of our customers application processes in the long term.”
New Innovation Centre
Visitors to the show can learn more about Americk Packaging’s new Innovation Centre which will open at the Wigan site in the first quarter of the year. The purpose-built group facility will provide manufacturers, retailers and brand owners the opportunity to develop packaging concepts through to design and finished samples in a range of substrates.
The Packaging Innovation Centre will offer an opportunity for customers to tap into expert knowledge around substrates, inks and finishes, sector insight and packaging performance. The details around the content of the facility is being kept under wraps however it will undoubtedly provide a unique service to the packaging industry.
Riley added: “We always aim to achieve on shelf impact using ‘on trend’ finishes such as tactile/soft touch lacquer finishes to give our customers maximum returns on shelf space they command in store.
“In these uncertain times of pre-BREXIT our UK based flexible packaging sites, vendor management inventory and stock holding is a real advantage to our UK customers. Our facilities offer capacity and award winning expertise. Given our scale we can provide real flexibility and spend time with our customers to not only print but design packaging solutions from scratch.”
Operating from six sites spread across the UK and Ireland, Americk Packaging has recently been acquired by the Saica Group of companies.
