Amerplast will partner with Gaviplas SL for the manufacture of tissue bags like Flatpack, Scanpack and Twister, achieving rapid market access with the help of Gaviplas’ new converting lines, equipped with the technology for the manufacture of this innovative packaging solution.
Gaviplas in turn will capitalize on its new converting capacity while benefiting from Amerplast’s marketing reach in the important tissue segment. Manufacturing volumes will be in line with market growth.
“This new product is the latest step in developing Amerplast into a leading pan-European packaging company, with the help of key partnerships and new innovations that are in tune with consumer and market trends”, says Børge Kvamme, CEO Amerplast. “In Germany we see a rapidly growing demand for more convenient hygiene tissue packaging with handles, and we believe the trend will soon carry over to other important markets. The Gaviplas partnership provides us with instant access to both the required technology and capacity, so our customers can capitalize on this trend in a timely manner.”
Amerplast will work closely with Gaviplas in the production process of the new tissue bags.
Together with technology supplier PerfoTec, Amerplast recently introduced AmerFresh, a new packaging system that enhances the shelf-life of fresh produce, thereby reducing waste and cost.
Spanish Gaviplas, founded in Alfarrasi, Valencia in 1962, is an ISO 9001 certified original family business manufacturing, printing and distributing efficient flexible packaging solutions.
