PulPac strengthens its US expansion by collaborating with Tek Pak, a tooling partner, in response to the global surge in demand for sustainable packaging solutions. Earlier this year, the Swedish company revealed plans for their own demonstration site and established partnerships with prominent players in the industry.
Following its impressive showcase at the recent Interpack fair in Düsseldorf, PulPac, the Swedish pioneer in packaging innovation, continues to build on its success by intensifying its expansion efforts in the United States. Collaborating with Tek Pak, a distinguished precision thermoforming company based in St. Charles, Illinois, PulPac ensures access to one of the fastest tooling suppliers in the North American market.
With over three decades of experience, Tek Pak has been offering rapid prototyping and efficient short to long-run production thermoforming services to various industries including medical, electronics, and consumer markets. Their solutions provide customers with a competitive edge in their respective markets.
“We take our commitment to producing environmental and sustainability packaging seriously at Tek Pak. Having the opportunity to work closely with PulPac to provide tools for dry fiber manufacturing will give our customers a new, exciting, and innovative packaging option,” says Tony Beyer, Owner of Tek Pak, Inc.
PulPac revolutionizes the packaging industry with its pioneering Dry Molded Fiber technology and machine platform. This groundbreaking manufacturing process transforms renewable pulp into high-performance packaging, offering a sustainable alternative. Notably, the technology significantly reduces water and energy consumption compared to traditional wet-forming methods, while maintaining comparable output and cost-efficiency to plastic processing.
“We are really impressed by Tek Pak. Their dedication to speed, quality, and technology is what we’re looking for in a partner, as the demand for sustainable packaging solutions increases worldwide,” says PulPac Chief Partnership Officer Viktor Börjesson. When PulPac showcased Dry Molded Fiber at the Interpack fair in Düsseldorf in May, the interest in the novel technology was massive. Viktor Börjesson again: “People are stunned when we present data that shows Dry Molded Fiber manufacturing is on par with plastic in cost-efficiency and output speed.”
“Tek Pak was built for quality and speed; known for meeting and exceeding client expectations,” comments Tony Beyer. “We are dedicated to providing the finest thermoforming tools with expedited turnaround times, ISO certified, and committed to the highest industrial manufacturing and safety standards.”
“In the industrialized world, time is money,” says Viktor, and concludes, “And the clock still ticks. So, making the technology accessible, being agile, and developing prototypes are key factors if we want to keep up with market needs. Tek Pak’s track record speaks for itself, and we know what they are capable of.”
