Pouches & Flexible Packaging

How it works

Flexible Packaging provides a sustainable alternative to rigid containers. A truckload of flexible equates to 35 truckloads of rigid; an important incentive to reduce transport, real-estate & logistic waste. Karlville offers a vertical approach to the supply of machinery for flexible packaging companies looking to expand their offerings into pouch. Pouch is a complex business as multiple material structures and unique converting challenges add barrier to entrance. Furthermore, unlike labels, flexible packaging has direct food contact, thus requiring converters to comply with important safety regulations & compliance.

In terms of converting, Karlville offers a complete line of machines starting from primary slitting to extrusion coating & lamination as well as post print lamination, inspection, slitting and pouch making. In term of packaging, Karlville continues the vertical machinery integration with spout applicators as well as fillers for food and non-food products. Within the pouch machinery supply, Karlville offers both Thermal & Ultrasonic spout inserting and pouch making solutions with an industry enabling Spouted Pouch Pilot Facility in Miami Florida to support & develop the business. It is important to note that our business strategy is to reduce waste and efficiency from the flexible packaging business by providing turn key solutions for pouches all based from pre-made technology.
