World-leading specialist in resealable solutions and equipment, Zip-Pak is opening a new manufacturing facility in São Paulo, Brazil.
With full production of resealable closures to begin in early 2013, the new plant will reduce lead times and greatly expand technical and consulting services to customers in Brazil, Argentina, and Chile. The localised production will help eliminate duties and taxes for local customers in addition to reducing Zip-Pak’s environmental footprint with the shipping of freight over shorter distances to reach Latin American customers.
Perry Malik, Business Manager for Latin America at Zip-Pak explains that the expansion in South America will enable Zip-Pak to continue providing innovative packaging solutions to an important global market.
The Brazil location also enables Zip-Pak machinery, material, and package design experts to offer ongoing consultation and field service to Latin American customers, ensuring smooth operations and alleviating unforeseen maintenance issues. Local field technicians will also provide added value to potential customers by offering consultation on ways brands can retrofit production lines to incorporate resealable packaging.
Zip-Pak's engineering team can also use their in-house equipment division to develop custom retrofit packaging systems that ease the transition to consumer-preferred resealable flexible formats without significant capital investments.
