Swedish packaging company, PulPac, ramps up its US expansion with tooling partner Tek Pak. Earlier this year, the Swedes announced they are setting up their own demonstration site, and they’ve already partnered with industry leaders in the market.
After its success at the interpack fair in Düsseldorf last month, PulPac keeps momentum and ramps its ongoing US expansion. Tek Pak, based in ST. Charles, Illinois, creates precision thermoforming and prides itself on being one of the fastest tooling suppliers in the North American market. Since 1992, they’ve provided the medical, electronics, and consumer markets with quick-turn rapid prototyping and short to long-run production thermoforming. Solutions that give their customers competitive advantages in their respective markets.
“We take our commitment to producing environmental and sustainability packaging seriously at Tek Pak. Having the opportunity to work closely with PulPac to provide tools for dry fiber manufacturing will give our customers a new, exciting, and innovative packaging option,” says Tony Beyer, owner of Tek Pak.
PulPac and their patented Dry Molded Fiber technology and machine platform are groundbreaking. The manufacturing process turns renewable pulp into high-performance packaging. The technology uses much less water and energy than traditional wet-forming and has the same output and cost-efficiency as plastic processing.
“We are really impressed by Tek Pak. Their dedication to speed, quality, and technology is what we’re looking for in a partner, as the demand for sustainable packaging solutions increases worldwide,” says PulPac chief partnership officer Viktor Borjesson. When PulPac showcased Dry Molded Fiber at the interpack fair in Düsseldorf in May, the interest in the novel technology was massive. “People are stunned when we present data that shows Dry Molded Fiber manufacturing is on par with plastic in cost-efficiency and output speed.”
“Tek Pak was built for quality and speed; known for meeting and exceeding client expectations,” says Tony Beyer. “We are dedicated to providing the finest thermoforming tools with expedited turnaround times, ISO certified, and committed to the highest industrial manufacturing and safety standards.”
“In the industrialized world, time is money,” says Borjesson, and concludes, “And the clock still ticks. So making the technology accessible, being agile, and developing prototypes are key factors if we want to keep up with market needs. Tek Pak’s track record speaks for itself, and we know what they are capable of.”
