UNIFILL TO RESUME CONTRACT PACKING SERVICE Featured
After many years during which the Company has been solely concentrated on the machines manufacturing activity -and following the many requests coming from the market- the Unifill board has approved an investment plan and given the green light for the restart of the contract-packing service.
After having invented the Vertical Thermoform, Fill & Seal technology back in 1979, Unifill started the very first contract-packing activity using this unique technology; for the following 20 years, Unifill has therefore represented the landmark for all customers around the world for both the manufacturing of machines and the contact-packing activity.
In 1997, a decision was made to discontinue the contract packing activity to focus on the development of new machines, thus consolidating the unchallenged leadership of Unifill in the Vertical Thermoform, Fill & Seal technology, with over 400 machines sold all over the world for the most diverse applications.
The new contract-packing operations –that will be set up in a dedicated area of the recently acquired new facilities of Bomporto in Northern Italy– will be ready to start in 2015 and will, in the first step, involve the use of 2 Unifill machines model TF-K and T-02/EP.
