Founded in 1996, BG Pack joined the PFM Group in 2001. Based at Bergamo, the company has acquired an international reputation for high-technology horizontal and vertical packaging machines to produce specialised flexible packaging formats. At the top of the range is the Vetta, a vertical form-fill-seal machine able to produce up to 30 different types of bag, including “doy style” packs with zips, “doy style” with adhesive strips for reclosure and PFM's own Steelo pack, a block-bottom bag in which the four corners are heat-sealed at the edge for improved rigidity and appearance. BG Pack also builds multi-crimper flow-wrappers, particularly for long dwell sealing in MAP cheese packing, and further customised form-fill seal machines for special applications including bags that are reclosable by a variety of means. Innovative design and application by BG Pack is illustrated by the fact that 80 per cent of the company's output is currently custom built. Main markets for BG Pack are Europe, Eastern Europe, the Middle East and the United States. Servicing, which is integrated with PFM, is carried out by a team of constantly updated technical staff who also provide remote Teleservice servicing via modem or the Internet. Over the past three years company turnover has shown an annual growth of 15 per cent. Each year, 4 per cent of turnover is reinvested in research and development.
