At ALLVAC, the interaction between research and development is particularly pronounced and not only takes place in the company’s in-house laboratory and application technology centre. Research and development answers contemporary questions about barrier film packaging. Our close cooperation with users, universities and the Kempten packaging cluster supports us in this matter. Research topics and market analyses also reach us through our Managing Director Dr Andreas Gasse, who, as Chairman of the Main Committee of Environment and Sustainability plays an important mediating role, so that ALLVAC can not only keep pace with most recent market developments, but also aims to set standards with cutting-edge technologies.
Our understanding of research and development is essentially concerned with the question of how packaging made of barrier film can still be sustainable in the future. An important keyword in this context is “save food”, which is committed to preserving food and creating solutions that counteract excessive food destruction through spoilage and damage during shipment. On the other hand, the vital topic of sustainability is the guiding factor of our research and development department. It is not without pride that we refer to our barrier films, which are made of plastics from renewable raw materials and have successfully passed all product tests in our application technology centre.
Young researchers analyse our core business
As a company, we also offer young people the opportunity to do research in our group of companies, which in addition to ALLVAC also includes our sister company ALLFO, Europe’s market leader for vacuum bags. Quite a few bachelor and master theses have analysed our core business and were included in their research results. Last but not least, the close, mostly long-standing contact with manufacturers of packaging machines is elementary for our research and development, as ultimately only the ideal interaction of film and machine makes perfect packaging and a satisfied customer. This is the driving force and motivation for our tasks in the crucial area of research and development.
