Karlville has opened a new office in Switzerland to focus pouch converting machinery efforts in Europe. The new office, Karlville Swiss, will be managed by Gustavo Guzzi and Gianfranco Locatelli, pouch machinery seasoned managers, who will manage flexible packaging machinery sales and service into EMEA.

Karlville maintains French operations as a main hub for packaging equipment specific to shrink sleeve application, tape multipacks and pouch filling. Both operations will work side by side, with French operations focusing on packaging and the Swiss operations on converting.

Karlville Swiss’ focus will be to expand sales and service support for EMEA for pouch machines, slitters and laminators. The Swiss entity will also work hand-in-hand with Karlville USA to expand new HP Pack Ready efforts in EMEA. Karlville USA will maintain management of shrink sleeve converting globally.
