Baltimore, Maryland-based Vac Pac has invested in an eight-color 59-inch SOMA Optima2 flexo press. Along with the Optima2 press, the company has purchased an automated SOMA S-Mount plate mounter.
Founded in 1928 as Duradene, a maker of cosmetics, today Vac Pac Inc. has grown to a multi-generational family business focused on packaging. The company’s 30 employees design, print and manufacture bags and pouches for bakery, poultry, meat, seafood and industrial applications.
The company specializes in high-temperature cook-in packaging for oven and microwave cooking as well as high barrier shrink bags. Vac Pac is a longtime innovator in high temperature packaging, holding patents for bag design since 1968.
Vac Pac exports finished products around the world through partnerships in South America, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom—and has prospects in other European countries and Asia.
Vac Pac currently owns two flexo presses, a 6-color and a 10-color, but is replacing its existing 6-color press with the SOMA Optima2.
