Plastic packaging processor adds tube extrusion to China operation

, says its extrusion capacity was necessary to meet the needs of customers globally as well as for new clients throughout Asia and Australia. The company already is marketing the tubes on its China facility's website.

According to the company, the VisiPak expansion had been planned for years due to the growing need from its global clientele to present a universal look throughout product lines on multiple continents. "Multiple opportunities were presented to us by our existing U.S. clients and prospects who were seeking consistency of quality in a universal package," said Jeff Barket, director of sales and marketing for VisiPak and the Sinclair & Rush Companies. "Our clients are looking at growth worldwide and we have always positioned ourselves to effectively serve our global clients by expanding our manufacturing capabilities internationally. This recent expansion in China underscores our commitment to these customers as well our desire to increase our product offering worldwide."

The clear PET-G tubes will be extruded in a variety of sizes, says the company, including standard open-end tubes that can be cut to specified sizes and the processor's PermaSeal line of clear plastic containers that are permanently sealed on one end with a bottom insert and capped or plugged with a decorative or functional closure on the other. Square tubing, mailing tubes, golf ball containers, donation containers, and hang tubes are also slated for production. The caps and plugs for the tubes already are being injection molded at the facility in China.

VisiPak says the Chinese factory currently operates 5 days a week with three shifts and serves the domestic Chinese market as well as customers throughout Southeast Asia and Australia.
