Bizerba cooperates with Italianpack for packaging lines for supermarkets

Balingen, 13 Sep 2021 | The commercial partnership with the Italian packaging specialist Italianpack strategically expands Bizerba's product portfolio: the Balingen-based technology company can now offer customers in the retail sector an expanded portfolio of packaging solutions. The highlight is line solutions in the smallest of spaces.

Strategic cooperation: More and more goods are being packed directly on site in supermarkets. For this, the retailer needs efficient packaging solutions up to fully automatic packaging lines that are optimally adapted to the limited space available. Bizerba and Italianpack are responding to the growing demand with a commercial partnership centred on semi- and fully-automatic tray sealing machines for supermarkets that will be manufactured by Italianpack and branded Bizerba. For the user, the partners combine devices from Bizerba and trays sealers manufactured by Italianpack into complete lines for slicing, packaging, inspection, as well as weighing and labeling. These solutions are superior to the competition, especially in confined spaces. Worldwide sales are handled exclusively by Bizerba.

"Italianpack has a great deal of experience in the development and production of packaging machines," says Andreas Wilhelm Kraut, chairman of the board, CEO and shareholder of Bizerba SE & Co. KG. "The solutions developed together with Bizerba specifically complement our portfolio in the packaging sector. Both family-run companies can look back on an impressive history and stand for innovative and high-quality solutions in their respective market segments. We are therefore proud to enter into a strategic partnership with Italianpack to further strengthen our strong market position in retail and complete our offering in supermarket packaging solutions."

Tomaso Petrini, CEO & Shareholder of Italianpack, says: "We are happy to have gained such a valued and successful partner in the retail food sector with Bizerba. This will enable us to further expand our global presence and place our innovative machines even more widely on the market."
