AeroFlexx and Fameccanica form partnership to accelerate the development and manufacturing of revolutionary packaging solution
Fameccanica was selected after a global evaluation of world class machine manufacturers to design, fabricate and scale both the converting and liquid filling equipment for AeroFlexx
ORLANDO, Fla., Dec. 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — AeroFlexx announced a partnership with Fameccanica, an innovation-based group focusing on diversified industrial automated machinery. With an innovative approach to design and wealth of experience in web converting and liquid filling machinery, Fameccanica will make its technological expertise and know-how available for the development of the lead commercial line which will produce AeroFlexx’s revolutionary liquid packaging solution.
Procter & Gamble selected Innventure to commercialize AeroFlexx after five years of extensive R&D and consumer testing. AeroFlexx has sole exclusive rights to commercialize the technology across all global categories with any partner. The AeroFlexx package is a sustainable, customer-focused package solution that uses at least 50 percent less plastic, enhances the consumer experience and is easier to ship throughout the supply chain. AeroFlexx recently was awarded the prestigious Dow Diamond Packaging Award in September of 2018.
“Organizations are increasingly seeking ways to accelerate growth while reducing their environmental footprint, due in part to e-commerce and the fast-paced evolution of products,” said Andrew Meyer, CEO of AeroFlexx. “There is a large demand for innovative packaging solutions that delivers on both while creating a better consumer experience.”
AeroFlexx chose to work with Fameccanica, which is headquartered in Pescara, Italy, after undergoing a global evaluation of world class machine manufacturers. The two companies share a common vision in making AeroFlexx the most significant packaging disruption of the next decade and share in the commitment for non-stop innovation. Fameccanica’s expertise is in converting and liquid filling equipment, which is key to the AeroFlexx manufacturing process. The company operates manufacturing facilities in North America, Europe and China, with global reach for sales, service and support.
“We were immediately attracted to AeroFlexx based on the uniqueness of the product and its inherent potential. Fameccanica is best known for our leading position in diversified industrial automated machinery and we strive to live by our motto ‘Non-stop innovation,’” said Alessandro Bulfon, GM of Fameccanica Group. “The combination of the two companies will leverage technology adjacency, knowledge and entrepreneurial spirit as well as the attention to sustainability and environment protection and will be the driver to provide new and superior solutions for all AeroFlexx Customers.”
