ULMA partners with TIPA to prepare for industry shift to bio-materials

“TIPA and ULMA’s partnership is a crucial development in ensuring sustainable, compostable packaging, which will not leave a long-lasting impact on the planet, is made available to all companies without fear of its use costing them”

Ed Williams

Due to industry demand, machinery manufacturer ULMA Packaging (ULMA) has geared up for a shift to compostable flexible packaging by partnering with TIPA® to improve efficiency for running compostable films on advanced packaging machinery

This collaboration enabled ULMA to optimise box motion and flow-wrapping machines to run with compostable films, matching conventional plastic’s performance and machinability.

Growing market share for eco-friendly alternatives to conventional plastic, like compostable films, is projected to be a key factor contributing towards the growth of the global flexibles market, which expected to increase from 160.8Bn USD to 200.5Bn USD by 2025 (source). Packaging machinery suppliers, like ULMA, looking to get ahead of the game find a quality partner in TIPA®. This collaboration has already offered brands like Natoora and R&R Smith sustainable options that meet industry standard packaging speeds and spec.

ULMA provides packaging solutions for a range of industries from protein to pharma, operating in 50 countries across the globe with 50,000 machines on the market, and are committed to minimising the impact packaging has on the environment, whilst maintaining protection and shelf-life of products.
