Zip-Pak opens new packaging closure facility in Brazil

New 46,000-square-foot facility produces resealable solutions ideal for petfood applications

Zip-Pak began commercial operations at its newest plant, a 46,000-square-foot facility in Cabreuva, São Paulo, Brazil, in February. The facility produces a selection of resealable solutions, including string zippers, double-track zippers and flange zippers, which can be used in petfood packaging.

The new facility allows Zip-Pak to expand its production of closures ideal for form-fill-seal applications, including petfood, and support services. As part of its “global to local” customer service commitment, the Brazil facility also warehouses and distributes many other zippers produced by Zip-Pak facilities in North America and Europe. Zip-Pak field technicians are also consulting with potential customers on ways to retrofit production lines to incorporate resealable packaging.

"Having a local presence means that Zip-Pak can better serve and meet the needs of this growing and dynamic global market,” said Daniel Richena, commercial director.
