Clondalkin Höxter recently welcomed a team of 65 films experts representing 39 subsidiaries from MULTIVAC for its annual films specialists meeting.
Each year MULTIVAC, a leading global manufacturer of packaging machinery and automation systems, chooses a strategic supplier to host the event.
Delegates spent two days on site with a packed agenda including training focused on Clondalkin Höxter’s market leading, specialist barrier products.
Clondalkin Höxter is a leading manufacturer of films with a strong presence in the food sector which has recently been strengthened through the introduction of WENTOPRO®, WENTOPLEX® films and Xtend-it!® which offer proven solutions for food brands that are looking to differentiate whilst reduce food waste.
Offering a wide range of multi-layer options, WENTOPRO® films can be provided both printed and unprinted with high barrier properties. WENTOPRO® is suitable for horizontal and vertical filling equipment and can be used on high-speed machines with an absolute guarantee for product safety.
WENTOPLEX® films consist of multi-layer laminates that are specially designed for the processed food sector and products including bake-off bread, processed meat and poultry, fish and dairy products. WENTOPLEX® are available in the form of top films or flowpack films and provide optimum protection.
Xtend-it!® is a new generation of high performance packaging films that provide properties to improve food safety and quality as well as extend the product shelf life increasing freshness for the consumer and reducing waste. Xtend-it!® offers these benefits by inhibiting and retarding the growth of microorganisms which can cause rapid breakdown in food products and in some cases represent a safety issue to the consumer.
Speaking about the meeting, Christian Claes, New Business Development Director at Höxter said; “We were delighted to have the MULTIVAC team with us, it was a great opportunity for both companies to learn from each other’s expertise.
“For our team, meetings like this allow us to understand more about the packing process which feeds directly into our research and development process.
“Partnerships like this one are helping us to better meet the needs of our worldwide customers.”
Clondalkin Höxter and MULTIVAC have been partners since 2012.
Ms Valeska Haux (Senior Director Corporate Marketing) said: “It was a pleasure to visit Clondalkin Höxter and I echo Christian’s remarks. Meeting the needs of customers requires partnerships with experts and the openness and honesty between our two companies results in improved solutions, efficiencies and competitiveness for our customers.”
