Presto Products Company and Mondi have collaborated for 18 years to provide packaging solutions to global customers. Collaborations include the expansion of Mondi’s FlexZiBox portfolio in Europe with a flat-bottom, reclosable bag featuring a Slide-Rite slider, and technical support to help Mondi’s customers in North America.
The relationship began when Mondi was exploring reclosable pouch options to penetrate the North American market. The company (then known as Nordenia USA) enlisted Pactiv’s zipper group, which was acquired by Presto in 2010, to provide PTC technology for easy resealability. Prior to that acquisition, the two companies were also working together in Europe, with Pactiv providing Slide-Rite sliders for larger sized bags beginning in 2000. Four years later, Nordenia looked to Pactiv to equip an extension of its FlexZiBox flat-bottom bag portfolio with Slide-Rite sliders. Today, Presto services Mondi on both sides of the Atlantic with resealable innovation.
“We recently completed a multi-year project where Presto provided invaluable insight and assistance from inception to commercialization,” said Mark Gum, Technical Support and New Product Development, Mondi Jackson Consumer Goods Packaging. “Presto’s immersion in the entire process and its ability to respond quickly to our customer needs helps us bring our ideas for packaging innovation to life—and speed their time to market.”
