Easypack unveil next generation green packaging technology

Easypack Ltd, the UK’s leading manufacturer of environmentally-friendly packaging solutions, has unveiled a new suite of packaging innovations that set a new benchmark in terms of packing efficiency and sustainability.

Celebrating their 25th anniversary, the launch of their new ‘pro’ range; packmaster™ pro and packmate™ pro, are among a number of new products being launched this year.  These new solutions are the second generation of their market-leading packmaster™ and packmate™ systems, which convert 100% recycled, recyclable and biodegradable paper into a robust, highly versatile packing medium.

The packmaster™ pro converts multiple grades of 100 per cent recycled single or twin-ply paper at high speeds, creating ultra-strong, paper cushions that are up to 80 times the original paper roll volume. New high speed blade technology has also cut the cycle time by half, offering an increase in packs of up to 35% per minute.

The new packmaster™ pro is Easypack’s most advanced protective packaging system to date. This innovative new solution combines and builds on the proven technology of their packmaster™ and packsolo™ systems, to offer a total packaging solution which delivers incredible versatility and efficiency, helping customers to reduce costs and save time.

The Company has also launched the advanced packmate® pro, which shows off its new slimline design and enhanced controls, along with a host of new benefits including its ability to convert multiple grades of recycled paper into cushion packs which are up to 16% stronger whilst using 25% less paper.

The new ‘pro’ range was designed and engineered in the UK to offer customer’s even greater packing flexibility as the new, faster systems can now convert both single and twin-ply paper in multiple grades and colours, enabling customers to pack an extensive range of goods, from heavy industrial goods through to the most fragile of items.

The new ‘pro’ range follows the launch in February of the new Airspeed® edge, an environmentally-friendly inflatable void fill system which offers a greener alternative to standard polythene air cushion packaging. The green-tinted, puncture-resistant film contains a natural organic additive that accelerates the breakdown of the film in landfill, making it a viable, green packaging solution for those currently using air bags.

25 Years of Packaging Innovation

The Company set out in 1992 to offer businesses an alternative, eco-friendly way of packing goods and their passion for innovation and sustainability led them to become the UK’s leading manufacturer of high-speed, on-demand, green packaging systems. They now have a network of offices and distributors across Europe and have been awarded The Queen’s Award for Export 3 times, which is an exceptional achievement.

Operations Director, Jason Cox, said: “2017 is a huge milestone for Easypack. We set out in 1992 to make a difference to the environment through sustainable packaging innovations and we are so proud of our achievements.  We are thankful to all of our customers, up and down the country and across Europe, for playing their part in helping to protect the environment, and for sharing in our beliefs and trusting in our solutions.”

Further new product announcements are due in the Autumn but in the meantime, and as part of their 25 year anniversary investments, Easypack has launched a brand new website where you can find all of the benefits of their new and existing product range including product videos and brochures.
