Kite Packaging, one of the UK’s leading distributors of packaging, and Audion Swissvac, the leading name in automated packaging solutions and machinery, will be partnering for the first time ever at the PPMA Show.
The partnership comes at a time when both businesses have been experiencing a high rate of growth, and for Kite in particular, expanding its range to allow for more automated machinery that offers a complete packaging solution.
The PPMA Show is now in its 23rd year and takes place on 30th September – 2nd October at the Birmingham NEC, showcasing the best in packaging machinery to over 8,000 visitors. Kite Packaging & Audion Swissvac will be collaborating on stand F90 – a 64 sq m space which will display 21 machines to stand visitors. On-hand will be both businesses' engineers who have many years’ experience in the field, and will be demonstrating the machinery and advising visitors.
Various machines will be on display, each with their own unique packaging credentials, with a focus on bagging, void fill, sealing, and vacuum and shrink wrapping. Most notably Audion Swissvac will be showcasing its Speedpack system, a manual fill and seal machine designed specifically for tubular products and Rollbag, a continuous bagging system using the patented pre-opened bags on a roll.
Kite will also be showcasing its patented system – the Wrap & Hold, the first machine of its kind to incorporate stretch film and corrugated boards to create versatile packs that eliminate the need for void fill.
It will also be demonstrating the Kite Mini Air and Air Shock – two air systems that are significantly cheaper, more effective and more environmentally friendly than traditional void fill and protective packaging.
The partnership between the two packaging businesses will continue post the PPMA Show, which will be the first time the public will see both company’s branding and partners collaborate together. Following the show, Kite and Audion Swissvac plan to bring customers a range of possible solutions to help with their packaging operation, using the expertise and resources of both experienced teams.
A spokesman representing Kite Packaging and Audion Swissvac commented that both businesses were incredibly excited about the partnership: “The two companies have different business structures but a completely shared philosophy – to offer a best-in-class service to customers through innovation and a commitment to their vision.
"This partnership will strengthen the growth of both businesses, but most importantly offer customers more choice, competitive solutions and expertise from two leaders in the packaging industry.”
