In August of 2021, Atlapac Corporation, a leading manufacturer of bags, pouches and flexible packaging, has added another pouch line. They are also adding a new slitter, and an offline coffee valve inserter.

“Atlapac’ newest pouch line is 100% American made, and it runs recyclable/environmentally friendly materials. We already run straight COEX LDPE pouches on our lines here; but now with this new all servo pouch line we will be dramatically increasing our throughput and capacity plant wide. Plus, it will have enhanced engineering to run digital films, CR zippers, and other features” says Paul Unrue, President at Atlapac Corporation.

Atlapac is adding a new slitting machine to help handle the stock laminates they are now converting.  “We added a solventless laminator last year, but quickly learned we need added slitting capacity”, stated Unrue.

Lastly, Atlapac is bringing an offline coffee valve inserter as well to help its toll converting clients. “We make flat bottom coffee bags here. We even put valves in on the current line while running, but due to demand, and that some of our clients want standard pouches with valves, we decided to add this offline system to our repertoire”, stated Unrue.

Atlapac has 30 quality and food safety programs in place, the following are some of the programs: Document Control, Management Audits/ Monthly Audits, Good Manufacturing Practices, Pest Control, Chemical Control, Storage and Handling, Training, Quality Control, Customer Quality/Complaint Management, Traceability, Hold and Release Protocol, Glass and Brittle Plastics, Sanitation and Maintenance.

Atlapac, an American contract manufacturer of pouches, bags and

Inno-lok® pre-applied zipper film, announces the arrival of Slide-Rite® Child-Guard™ Child Resistant Slider Zippers (from Presto Products).  The capability was added to meet the growing demands of a much needed child resistant flexible package for products that should not be consumed by children or taken without adult supervision.

Paul Unrue, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, stated “We have been in the developing stages of a stock bag for multiple markets to offer a child safe solution with a pouch. Presto’s Slide-Rite® Child-Guard™ Child Resistant Slider Zipper offers tested performance results, where both the requirements of the Poison Prevention Packaging Act (16 CFR 1700) and the classification from ASTM (D3475) International have been validated by Presto.”

The innovative closure system is easy for users to operate by aligning the slider tongue with the groove, press down lightly on the slider’s top side and pull the slider across the zipper track.  Adult consumers (including seniors), will find the zipper easy to open, but it is extremely challenging for children age five and under as imposed by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act.

Child GuardUnrue also added, “the technology extends the opportunities and markets our partners (the printers and laminators of the flexible packaging industry) can pursue that were previously available only to rigid packaging.”

Markets or applications include: medicinal food products, pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, chemical, lawn & garden and household products.

Atlapac consists of a team of Packaging Professionals. With over 50 production lines making millions of packages every day, Atlapac is a food certified, quality focused, and centrally located manufacturer in Columbus, Ohio.
