Hartness Intl. and RKW announce Grab Pack partnership in Europe

Hartness International and RKW will introduce Grab Pack at Drinktec 2009 in September. A new film package, Grab Pack offers enhanced customer convenience, quality display characteristics, and reduced packaging material.
The Grab Pack package is comprised of a pre-formed web of printed, cost-effective shrinkable polyethylene film. During the application process, this web is opened and applied over grouped containers, capturing container foot and shoulder. A unique feature of the package is that each bottle is contained in its own pocket; thus, eliminating bottle to bottle contact. The multipack is then supported and passed through a heat shrink tunnel in order to shrink the primary containers tightly together into a very solid multipack. The printed film web can be pre-perforated to facilitate the easy removal of individual bottles from the package.

Hartness International is headquartered in Greenville, SC and Kleve, Germany. Hartness will provide Grab Pack application equipment, line design, and site execution of the Grab Pack implementation.

With over 50 years of experience in polyethylene and polypropylene film R&D and production, RKW is one of the world’s largest film providers. Utilizing state-of-the art technology. RKW has 18 locations around the world. RKW will provide film webs for Grab Pack projects in EMEA.
