STOROPACK AND OPITZ JOIN FORCES
Metzingen, January 2019. Storopack will be working with OPITZ Packaging Systems GmbH to offer automated, efficient processes in packaging logistics. The Packaging division of the protective packaging specialist based in Metzingen and the machine manufacturer and automation specialist in Kalefeld, Lower Saxony, are currently working together on development projects in the area of system automation. Storopack is also planning to expand its entire product range for packaging logistics with machines provided by OPITZ. “In this partnership, our experience and expertise in innovative protective packaging solutions are the perfect complement to OPITZ’s know-how in automated machine functions. Together we can thus generate true value for our customers, whose requirements range from manual to semiautomatic and fully automatic solutions,” says Hermann Reichenecker, Chairman of the Management Board. “We’re happy to have found in Storopack a partner that shares our high standards in terms of quality and customer focus, a key factor for us and long-term collaboration. Together we can offer our customers a comprehensive, individual range,” says Günther Opitz, Managing Director of OPITZ Packaging Systems GmbH.
System Solutions for All Areas
The aim of the collaboration is to integrate all areas of packaging logistics into semiautomated or fully automated work processes as well as offer customers fully automated system solutions. Functions include box preparation – erecting, volume reduction, and sealing – the corresponding conveyor technology, and palletizing boxes ready for shipment. The collaboration also involves integration of Storopack core products directly at the packing station: PAPERplus® paper cushion, AIRplus® air pillow, and FOAMplus® foam packaging. In addition, Storopack’s Working Comfort® principle forms the foundation of the collaboration, focusing on ergonomic workstations and processes.
