Packaging world meets at Interpack

19 May 2011

The international packaging sector was out in force at the Interpack exhibition in Dusseldorf between 12-18 May, proving the industry is thriving and healthy

It's one of the biggest packaging events of the year - and as always when it comes to exhibitions, Germany puts on a dazzling show to rival the best international fairs.

Ingolf Latz (pictured, far right), international sales manager of OCS Checkweighers, was pleased with 'the very good show', where his company was exhibiting its latest checkweigher.

Andrew Butler-Miles, OCS's X-ray application advisor, explained the environmentally friendly machine launched at Interpack, had received a lot of positive feedback, and that the company was expecting good uptake within the food industry.

There was also positive feedback from Peter McGough, co-founder and executive director at Bapco Closures, which describes itself as a player in the design, development and manufacturing of closures.

Peter said he was impressed by the number of visitor enquiries. ''The show has been very good for us,'' he said.

Ishida Europe's stand was a hive of activity with Rhian Burge, marketing manager in the UK, bustling back and forth processing leads. Torsten Gieze of Ishida said the company had set ambitious targets for the number of leads it expected but had already exceeded last Interpack's total.
Simon Taylor of Lock Inspection Systems was also very positive about the show, saying it had been well worth exhibiting. Before the show, Simon had told FP: ''Being a highly specialised SME, Lock Inspection Systems spends its marketing budget in a very focused and prudent fashion.

''Interpack represents the best single opportunity in the European Trade Show calendar, to showcase products and technology to a large and diverse international audience. For the 2011 show, there will be a fully networked range of the new Insight metal detection systems featuring Digital Direct Signal (DDS) Graphics and OPTIX software to demonstrate the comprehensive benefits of the new technology.

''With its core markets the food and pharmaceutical industries, Lock is acutely aware of the need to eliminate contamination from finished products.

''At Interpack 2011, Lock is seeking to advise the market that rather than being an undesirable “insurance policy”, thoughtfully designed metal detection systems which integrates control, management and traceability of metal contaminants, can make a substantial contribution to efficient, high quality manufacturing.''

The design brief for this product was to bring ‘bag in box’ wine into the 21st century. In order to do so, it was decided that wine in a box had to become ‘fashionable’. With the knowledge that 8 out of every 10 bottles of wine bought to drink at home are bought by women plus the knowledge that handbags are at the top of a woman’s most wanted list, the Vernissage Wine Handbag was, without doubt, the most obvious fashion choice.Full Story...
