It is the concept of innovation that drove Dominic Thériault, founder and president of Impack Packaging to build the company. During his engineering studies, he came up with the idea of a new packing machine. To continue developing his innovative packing concept, he launched his own business.
Impack has a great understanding of the challenges and complexity of today’s packaging market. The company’s products are designed to help folding carton and corrugated packaging manufacturers extend their capabilities in carton packaging.
Nowadays, especially with the rise of e-commerce, packaging needs to be flexible and strong. Folding carton and corrugated packaging producers work with clients who are continually diversifying their product range. Packaging can be challenging with complex products, but the process can be mastered with optimized equipment for your folder-gluers. Impack’s experts always focus on conceiving innovative solutions for packaging manufacturers in order to improve production lines. The company develops simple and versatile packers to fit the complex needs of the packaging industry.
Over the years, IMPACK has developed several new packaging equipment, including the Virtuo packer, which is one of the only automatic folder-gluer packers on the market that can handle both carton and corrugated board. It was in 2018 that the Virtuo packer became fully automated. It went through 17 years of continuous improvement and innovation and 7 transformations to become fully automated. Today it handles different formats of boxes (medium to very large) and types of boxes (straight line, 4/6 corners and crash-lock bottom), packed in one row and one layer.
Packers allowing you to produce a large range of various boxes in a single production line is a major advantage as you become more flexible, this helps you stay ahead of your competitors.
Impack’s innovation involves adapting packers to the complexities of the market over time.
