Pacific Packaging, a U.S. film and paper manufacturer, distributor and converter, offers a variety of banding materials slit to the required widths that work on automatic and self-standing banding equipment from Wexler and Felins ATS U.S. 2000, Blumer Bandall, PB 110, Akebono, Adolf Mohr, Polar and Heidelberg among others. Unlike overseas suppliers, which can take weeks of lead-time to restock banding supplies including production and shipping, a domestic source like Pacific Packaging can ship standard stock the same day and most special stock within days. Also, the savings on domestic vs. international freight is considerable. The company uses a consignment program that allows them to stock product but only pay for what they use. An added benefit of the Pacific Packaging consignment program allows inventory and payment to be managed electronically.
