Bizerba (Germany) - Press Release: The commercial partnership with the Italian packaging specialist Italianpack strategically expands Bizerba's product portfolio: the Balingen-based technology company can now offer customers in the retail sector an expanded portfolio of packaging solutions. The highlight is line solutions in the smallest of spaces.
More and more goods are being packed directly on site in supermarkets. For this, the retailer needs efficient packaging solutions up to fully automatic packaging lines that are optimally adapted to the limited space available.

For the user, the partners combine devices from Bizerba and trays sealers manufactured by Italianpack into complete lines for slicing, packaging, inspection, as well as weighing and labeling. These solutions are superior to the competition, especially in confined spaces. Worldwide sales are handled exclusively by Bizerba.
