group Assa Abloy highlighted
its solutions to a broad range of
businesses at the show, as print
and packaging companies see the
need to meet higher standards for
environmental control in their plants.
Murray Williams, national manager
of Albany Assa Abloy, said, "While
food has traditionally been the driving
sector for this technology, printing
and packaging is now not far behind.
Many of these sectors have become
intertwined and require the same
standards to meet compliance."
Albany Assa Abloy has rebranded,
bringing everything in the portfolio
of New Zealand's largest supplier of
environmental control rapid doors
under one umbrella.
Williams said, "Many businesses
with existing doors will know either
the Envico, Nomafa or Albany brands.
With over 2,500 doors in the New
Zealand market alone and, with
national support for oem parts and
factory trained service technicians,
we are clear leaders in the eld. In
addition to the environmental and
energy saving bene ts Albany Assa
Abloy's focus on safety is equally
impressive with advanced systems
available on all models.
"With a strong number of printing
and packaging representatives, both
new and familiar, attending our
stand during the show we're looking
forward to expanding with this

VISITORS to the show saw some of
D & L Packaging's range of solutions.
It covers shrink labels and shrink
sleeves, food packaging, tray lidding
and vacuum packing solutions, label
design, layout and printing, and
engineered application solutions.
Digby Morton, managing
director of D&L Packaging, used the
show to introduce a new tray lidding
lm. He said, "The new tray lidding
lm is one of the best we have seen
in years. It's a polyester based lm so
it avoids many of the issues people
can have with lm."
With lms and tray packing as
its main lines, the company sells
a variety of machines such as,
thermo-formers and skin packers,
handling, seeing itself as a one-stop
shop solution for shrink labels and
machinery. Morton said, "Being able
to provide the complete package
means we can o er automated
solutions to typical New Zealand
RECENTLY purchased by Amcor,
specialist machinery supplier packsys
had a busy stand at the show. Brendan
Laby, general manager of packsys,
says the company has been the
largest exhibitor at Foodtech Packtech
over the past 20 years. He said, "For
us, the show is not so much about
sales and marketing as it is getting
to see our customers in a di erent
setting. We get to see customers and
chew the fat with them."
The company specialises in
high speed automated packaging
machinery, food processing
machinery and a full complement of
packaging materials mainly for the
fresh red meat sector. He said, "We are
dealing with all the processors, from
abattoirs to small goods producers.
Produce is another industry that we
keep busy in."
This year's show has given packsys
the opportunity to introduce its
marriage with Amcor, which exhibited
side by side. Laby said, "While it helps
us consolidate the branding, people
can see that we are still packsys."
BALING specialists Mil-tek kept busy
at the show with a booth aimed at
increasing awareness of recycling
in the industry. The company sells,
rents, and leases machines that sort,
compress, and bale waste products.
Its larger clients include the likes of
Fonterra, Coca-Cola, Nestle, Mitre and
the Warehouse but it also caters for
small to medium sized businesses.
Rod Enoka, managing director of
Mil-tek, said, "What we do is about
reducing waste. It's on everybody's
bill, so everyone has a stake in
reducing the size of their waste. We
know how to reduce waste. We can
help companies turn their waste into a
sellable resell able product. That turns
a cost stream into a revenue stream."
Enoka has seen many companies
improve their attitude to sustainability
through turning their waste to pro t.
He added, "It's also very much about
e ciency. Why take that rubbish bag
and throw it away? At the end of the
week, it is only rubbish. Eighty per
cent of packaging is air. What happens
when you crush it? You reduce the
carbon footprint. We help companies
manage that footprint and it saves
them time and money."
LOCALLY owned and operated
Accolade has o ces in Tauranga,
Auckland and Wellington, supplying,
exible lms supply for a variety
industries including pharmaceutical,
hardware, and produce.
The company also manufactures
the machines that run the lms.
Clark Dury, managing director of
Accolade, said, "We are the last Kiwi
rm manufacturing shrink machines,
which puts us up against the imported
product. Functionality has improved
on all the machines. We have found
that the presentation of printed
materials has certainly improved.
More time goes into the design of
printed product and the equipment
is better. In terms of cost, clients get
more for their dollar.
"Don Baxter began the company
in 1992 and it has grown to now
employ 22 sta , including a dedicated
service and support team that is
available 24/7. We have a horizontal
ow pack machine that has a
very small footprint, high level of
automation touch screen and low
running costs. It also has easy to
change programmes for di erent
products. Training on it takes about
Dury received positive feedback
at the show. He said, "This show works
well as a branding exercise for us. It's
amazing how many people we know."
