UNI Packaging’s New Vacuum Pouch Line

UNI Packaging’s New Vacuum Pouch Line

Flexible packaging group, UNI Packaging, has increased manufacturing capacity and the range of products produced at its UK site with the installation of a vacuum pouch manufacturing line.

Following an investment in a Titan SR9-DT Dual Turret Slitter installed at the site last year, the addition of vacuum pouch manufacture is set to provide their UK customers with increased flexibility and enhanced service options, whilst allowing the firm to target new markets. Alongside the increase in dedicated orders, the St Helens facility will also be stock holding a range of vacuum pouch sizes for off-the-shelf requirements.

UNI Packaging’s Simon Parisi says: “As an integrated group, we are able to identify and invest in new assets quickly and efficiently to target and satisfy the needs of each country’s market conditions and growth opportunities. We have a growing market share in this country, so it was time to increase our in-territory capability. The move has necessitated an extra shift to facilitate the increase in output.”

With expanding capacity, the St Helens site is currently being reorganised to create a more logical manufacturing workflow: a dedicated print hall is being created, alongside a new lamination hall with a new high tech film curing facility and a brand new slitting hall.

UNI Packaging provides a full range of flexible packaging solutions including gravure, flexographic and digital printing through their Digiflex® offering, vacuum pouch and stand-up pouch manufacture, lamination, laser scoring, co-extrusion and logistics. With a turnover in excess of €110m, the group employs over 300 people in sites and offices across 15 countries.
