Global digital flexible packaging print giant ePac Flexible Packaging (ePac) is building a plant in Australia, with the Melbourne site set to be operational by the end of the year.
Specialising in small and medium run-length orders, ePac’s Australian customer base will focus on start-ups across the snack, confection, coffee, organic foods, pet food, and nutritional supplement space.
The new ePac plant will produce both flexible pouches and roll-stock. The factory will be based on the same template as ePac’s other sites around the world, with some local variation. Centrestage will be two HP Indigo 25K digital flexible presses, the new machine that superseded the 20000 and prints at 31 metres a minute in four colour mode. Finishing will include solventless lamination, high-end bagmakers, and valve inserters, for outgassing when needed. Click to read more.
