Packaging Partners enters case packing sector

Packaging Partners, a packaging machinery supplier, has purchased the assets and design IP of robotic case packing technology business Adaptapack, which will help it explore opportunities in Australia and Asia. This comes after Walls Machinery went into administration late last year.

“We’ve been looking for an opportunity to enter the intermittent RSC case packing sector for a while now, as it’s very complementary to our other interests in the packaging machinery space. These flexible packers are particularly suited to low- to medium-speed food and dairy applications, for both rigid and flexible primary packs. They are perfect for market opportunities we’ve identified in both Australia and also Asia,” said Phil Biggs, Packaging Partners Director.

The company said the Adaptapack brand will be discontinued, but it will support the extensive installed base of machines in Australia and Asia via its distribution partners. Foodmach will be the Australian distribution agent for the entire product range.

“Our team at Foodmach has extensive technical knowledge of case packing, and so along with our robotic palletising, conveying, line control and Robopac stretch wrapping technologies, we can now supply seamless and fully integrated end-of-line packaging solutions,” said Earle Roberts, Foodmach CCO.
