Featured at this year’s Global Pouch Forum: Partners Hoffer Plastics, a family owned custom injection molder based in South Elgin, IL, and Mespack, a global producer of flexible packaging machinery based in Barcelona Spain. A shared vision and passion for innovation in packaging, and a perfect match of complementary skills and technical expertise.  

Hoffer and Mespack’s Shared Goal: Impact the entire flexible packaging supply chain through innovations that:

  • Encourage growth
  • Minimize production downtime
  • Enable production independence
  • Promote environmental sustainability

Hoffer and Mespack achieved this by melding and leveraging the technical spouted pouch “know-how” of Hoffer with the global machinery excellence of Mespack. It’s about respect, trust, and shared goals.

An open, holistic approach to product development

  • Hoffer and Mespack consider all aspects of the value chain: the needs, problems and benefits to end consumers, the brand, co-packers, converters, cap and spout suppliers, and machine suppliers.  
  • They embrace contributions and capabilities from other internal and external sources that can add value.
