Headquartered in Borgo Valentino (TO), Offmar Srl designs and builds machines for making envelopes and bags for packaging, shipping or storing products, objects and values.
As hinted by Guido Matta, the company’s Export Sales Manager «Our participation at Ipack-Mat has a twofold purpose: taking advantage of the venue for presenting the innovations of our solutions to the domestic and international markets, and, at the same time, establishing new business relationships with resellers and distributors in Italy and the rest of Europe».
The concern’s presence also has a sustainability dimension to it, given that the flagship innovation Offmar will be presenting at the fair is WAVEBAG, a protective mailer that is waterproof and ecological, developed as a green alternative to current mixed material envelopes (bubble wrap + paper), which are not suitable for separate waste collection bins.
«In addition to coated paper + PE film – explains Matta – the envelope can be produced entirely out of one of these materials or the other, making for a totally recyclable solution. The padding is made using an optimized process that guarantees significant savings on operating costs. Furthermore, the mailers can be personalized according to need by adjusting format and material and printing in various colors».
Visitors to Ipack-Mat will also have a chance to see up-close the complete portfolio of machines produced and marketed by Offmar: heat welders, hot die-cutters, automatic gathering machines and machines for bubble film reel making. «Our systems – the manager concludes – are easy to personalize and flexible and find a wide array of applications that ranges from converting to packaging to end of line, for making sheets, covers, envelopes and bags (3D standard or blown), with many different materials (bubble wrap, foam, laminates, barrier film, expanded film, etc.)».
