As a licensee, Maco will now drive this technology through manufacturing and sales in North America.
Maco’s manufacturing expertise enables not only the ability to manufacture PacXpert, but also to fill it through Maco’s co-packing capabilities, which provides a turnkey approach for brand owners.
“Maco has been a strategic collaborator for Dow over the past few years and this agreement solidifies our joint commitment and belief in the technology,” said Fabrice Digonnet, global leader for PacXpert Packaging Technology.“We believe that Maco is a key collaborator in proliferating the adoption of PacXpert throughout North America.”
PacXpert Packaging Technology is a packaging design that enables transition from traditional rigid containers to flexible packaging with sustainability benefits and convenience. The distinctive, flexible stand-up pouch is durable, easy to use, lightweight and collapsible. PacXpert is compatible with many different types of applications that span liquids, solids, edible and non-edible materials. Dow trademarked the technology as PacXpert after acquiring the global license to the innovative Smart Bottle™ technology on which PacXpert is founded.
