CINCINNATI (September 24, 2017) ProAmpac returned to PACK EXPO Las Vegas this week, showcasing product innovations, and expanded capabilities, as well as multiple industrial awards received during the past year.
Since last year’s PACK EXPO, ProAmpac has become one of the fastest growing flexible packaging manufacturers in the United States: five acquisitions, a total of 25 manufacturing facilities, 3,200 employees, new ownership by Pritzker Group Private Capital, and an elevated ranking as one of the 10 largest packaging converters in the nation.
In the same period, ProAmpac received 22 awards in multiple competitions.
“During a time of strategic expansion, these awards reinforce our unwavering commitment to quality and innovation,” said Adam Grose, Chief Commercial Officer.
“Thanks to the organizations bestowing the awards. Thanks to our employees for going above and beyond. And most of all thanks to our customers for giving us the opportunity to serve them and provide innovative products to build their business.”
ProAmpac won seven total awards in the Gold Ink Awards competition sponsored by Printing Impressions, the industry’s most prestigious print competition. One Bronze and six Pewter awards were received for print in the Flexible Packaging category. New technologies with inks and substrates were presented for several ProAmpac wins for pouches submitted.
Last month, the packagePRINTING Excellence Awards won Best of Show from among nearly 200 entries, and First Place in the Flexible Packaging: Flexo printing process category. According to packagePRINTING judge Bill Enright, “This entry…was printed exceptionally well on a very difficult substrate. It featured very clean printing with very tight registration… and depicted a vivid, almost 3D, lifelike appearance.” The pouch was featured as the cover story of packagePRINTING magazine’s August issue.
A recent win for ProAmpac was from among the World Beverage Innovation Awards sponsored by FoodBev Media and hosted by drinktec. ProAmpac received first place in the Best Sports or Fitness Drink category for its EZY Pro10, a custom shaped, spouted, stand-up pouch with a unique shape that fits perfectly fits in the hand of the consumer. EZY Pro 10 is pre-filled with 30g of protein powder. The end-user fills the pouch with 230ml of water at the point of use and shakes to combine the powder before consuming. ##
