Vonco Products has announced that it is expanding the capabilities and capacity of its LiquaLoc Flexibles division with investments in equipment and facilities.
In addition to a state-of-the-art laminating system purchased and installed in the summer of 2015, Vonco Products has constructed a special-purpose room dedicated to a brand new pouch line for producing liquid-tight solutions.
“It’s an exciting time here at LiquaLoc,” says Doug Marvin, business development manager for Liquid Packaging. “We’re adding new features and new capabilities to better serve our customers and deliver even greater value to the liquid-tight packaging marketplace.”
The high-speed automated pouch line is designed to manufacture high-performance liquid-tight packaging used in a variety of demanding end-use applications, from industrial and household chemicals to health and beauty products. The new pouch will enable LiquaLoc Flexibles to provide customized solutions with the same levels of quality and performance in a more efficiency and effective many, company officials say.
The company’s specially built room that houses the new line is completely enclosed, with its own positive air-flow climate controls, making it ideally suited for producing liquid-tight solutions for use with food and beverages or for medical applications.
Vonco also recently broke ground on a new facility in Salem, Wisconsin. The announcement was made at a celebration event in October, attended by Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch. The 80,000-square-foot facility will be custom designed to accommodate the expanding manufacturing and operational needs of Vonco Products and LiquaLoc Flexibles, with full occupancy expected by the end of 2017.
