Packaging manufacturer expands Melbourne facility

ABBE Corrugated will undertake a significant investment for the launch of its latest e-commerce packaging technology that will be unveiled at its Automation Packaging Machinery Open House and Demo Centre, in Melbourne.

Due to COVID-19 hindering all travels to its Italian Packaging Machinery Partners and with continued international travel restrictions into 2021, the company is bringing its packaging automation innovation to Australian shores.

“When working on these large projects in the past we would need to travel to our Italian Partner’s site with our clients (including a multitude of their product mix) for live demonstrations and Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT). Seeing as the Global Pandemic inhibited this in 2020, it forced us to rethink things and bring this solution closer to home for immediate accessibility to our Customers” Daniel O’Sullivan, Sales Director at ABBE said.

“The unveiling of the CMC Genesys at ABBE Automation’s Open House will be complemented with other packaging machinery solutions: the CMC EasyBox, as well as Panotec’s On Demand Packaging system – Compack Evo. A rich program for a fast-evolving market, that looks beyond any e-fulfilment boundaries.”

It’s the first of its kind in 3D Packaging Machinery concept, that creates right-sized packaging at high-speed, leading to a reduction in the carton’s cubic volume, materials and shipping costs.

Since bringing this Packaging technology to the Australian market in 2017, ABBE has partnered with and supplies leading Online Retailers & 3PL’s such as Catch, CottonOn, Quantium Solutions and Booktopia, who were early adopters of innovative packaging solution – CMC CartonWrap, as well as offering Panotec On Demand Packaging to players like Everten, PMI Imageworks and Arlec.

ABBE will be presenting the full range of sustainable e-commerce solutions. Starting at hand-packed standard boxes and easy-close tape solutions right through to full automation of 800 boxes per hour, perfectly packed without human intervention.

Having the machinery accessible at its Melbourne site will enable many leading and growing Australian companies to come along with their team (and of course their products) and experience the technology for themselves in real-time.

The ABBE Open House and Private Demo Sessions are set for April 2021,
