About Polypack, Inc.
WE GOT IT COVERED
No matter what you need to ship, store, protect or make visible, we make the equipment that gives you the perfect shrink wrap solution. No matter what your product is, our machines are designed to suit your needs and provide an enduring solution to packaging your products efficiently and economically.
For over 60 years, Polypack, Inc. has supplied the finest shrink-wrapping and bundling equipment to many industries including the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, personal care, consumer goods, industrial products, dairy, beverage and food processing industries. Polypack continues to innovate by integrating robotics, servos, and unique packaging features and configurations never before seen in the marketplace.
Polypack’s product line has evolved from a few models of shrink wrappers to a diverse range of packaging equipment. These designs include total closure forming heads (horizontal, form, fill and seal) shrink wrappers, sleeve wrap (bullseye) shrink wrappers, fully automatic tray loaders/formers, wraparound case packers, JacketPack® systems, label orientation systems and robotic pick and place equipment.
Polypack holds several patents for collating process solutions. For example, Polypack holds a patent for a robotic pick & place system that places a product directly onto film, which eliminates excess product transfers and provides an ideal solution for odd-shaped or unstable products. Polypack also holds several patents for the collation of Nested Packs. Unlike traditional methods that rely on corrugated to align rows, Nested Packs completely eliminate the need for corrugated, and the material savings are huge. This patented pack allows for increased product quantity for a given package size, and offers unique marketing opportunities and package design possibilities.

Sustainable Solution Description
A trailblazer in green solutions, Polypack is committed to the environment and taking sustainability, a step further, Polypack is thoroughly dedicated to developing innovations and new technology in shrink wrap and cardboard packaging. Furthermore, Polypack is investing in bioplastics and eco-packaging to help clients meet their sustainability commitments.
Headquartered in Florida, Polypack machines are built using solar power via a 1,629-panel integrated rooftop system. Polypack’s currently manufactures all its end-of-line packaging equipment with energy harnessed from the sun. In 2013, Polypack completed the installation of an integrated solar rooftop featuring 1,000 panels for a combined output of 270 Kilowatts. The power generated by this system is more than enough to operate the manufacturing facility and office space. The system uses a unique mounting system capable of withstanding a Category 5 Hurricane. In late 2018, Polypack installed an additional 629 solar panel on top of its new production facility. This brought the total number of solar panels up to 1,629 and the maximum solar array output to 420 Kilowatts, which is well over the facility’s daily needs.
Polypack’s shrink packaging solutions are designed to drastically reduce or completely eliminate corrugate consumption and shrink waste, which has a huge impact on the amount of packaging mass entering our landfills. Corrugate is not only expensive, it also adds bulk and weight, which increases fuel consumption for freight and requires more storage space than rolls of shrink film. Film Source International, Polypack’s sister company, offers biodegradable and renewably based shrink films for the environmentally concerned customers. Ecofriendly packaging solutions with plant-based shrink film and biodegradable materials options now available.
Polypack shrink tunnels are among the most energy efficient tunnels in the entire shrink wrap industry. One of the energies saving features of our tunnels is the ability to automatically adjust the speeds of the fans. They run at a slower speed when the tunnel is heating and lower to a slower speed if production is interrupted. All Polypack shrink tunnels feature double insulation and the electric heater banks are always located in the center of the tunnel to avoid energy loss.
All Polypack shrink wrap machines utilize stainless steel construction. Aside from the obvious benefits of sanitation and longevity, it is important to note that there are no harsh chemicals, solvents, primers, or paints associated with the manufacture and upkeep of Polypack machines. Such materials usually contain harmful vapors and must be carefully applied and disposed of in order to avoid introducing contaminants into the environment.
In today’s world, it is of utmost importance that we carefully manage our natural resources. Polypack is a leading “green” manufacturer by harnessing solar energy for manufacturing, providing source reduction with patented packaging techniques and offering “green” films, building high-efficiency shrink tunnels, and using stainless steel for all machinery.
