Yesterday we made the decision to suspend our production operations until April 1st due to the outbreak of COVID19. While we are fortunate in that our entire team remains in good health, we believe this is the responsible choice for the safety of our employees and their families, our customers, our suppliers and our business partners. Though this was no easy decision to make we knew we had to do our part for our local and global communities.  However, we know how important it is to support each other through times of uncertainty. We want […]

In male-dominated industries like packaging and manufacturing the contribution from women to these industries can go unacknowledged and underappreciated. Yet we are there in every position, every role, every […]

Difference between Damark S1 and S2

By | News, Shrink Packaging | November 8th, 2019 | Comments (0)
Plexpack has two different types of wrappers that can totally enclose a package : the Damark S1 and S2. Both create high-quality fully enclosed packages without the need for an operator. However, the difference between the two machines lies in how the machine deploys the shrink film for enclosure; this means that the finished product on the S2 will appear slightly different from the S1. The S1 as you might guess, uses a single sheet of film to seal around packages. To ensure the package […]

Don’t let poor packaging “blunt” the quality of your cannabis!

As some of you reading this might know, Plexpack will be exhibiting at the Cannabis Business Summit and Expo in San Jose on the 26th and 27th.

Here’s all you need to know: Bags & Retail Regulations Across the Board:  Most businesses in the cannabis industry use either Single Use bags or Resealable bags for vacuum sealing.  Single-use bags are tamper-evident, use food grade compound films to ensure freshness, and most […]

Bag Sealing Solutions for Pet Food

dog food bag
Why you need a good seal: Packaging is one of the most important things for pet-industry manufacturers.  Pet owners want to know that the product they are buying is sealed properly so their pet food or treats are as fresh as possible. No one wants to buy a new 50 lb. bag of pet food to find that it has lost its freshness and nutrients. Dogs and cats are less likely to eat food that has lost its flavour due to poor packaging, and when pets don’t eat their food, […]
