Americk Packaging says it will be the only specialist packaging supplier attending PATS Sandown next month that offers a complete packaging solution for flexibles, labels and carton board packaging.

Sales director Neil Riley said: “This is our second PATS and we intend to provide delegates with valuable advice as to the options, benefits and performance of a variety of packaging solutions.

“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.”

Americk Packaging will also be sharing an insight into its forthcoming Innovation Centre due to open at its Wigan site. The purpose-built group facility the Innovation 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 a real opportunity for customers to tap into expert knowledge around substrates, inks and finishes, sector insight and packaging performance,” said Neil.

“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 said the company always aims to achieve on-shelf impact using ‘on trend’ finishes to give customers maximum returns on shelf space.

“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.”

Americk, which has recently been acquired by the Saica Group, operates from six sites across the UK and Ireland.
