Karlville has opened a new office in Switzerland as a focus for its pouch converting machinery efforts in Europe.
Karlville Swiss will be managed by Gustavo Guzzi and Gianfranco Locatelli, who have joined to manage flexible packaging machinery sales and service into the EMEA region.
Karlville maintains French operations as main hub for packaging equipment specific to shrink sleeve applications, tape multipacks and pouch filling. Both operations will work side-by-side, with its French operations focusing on packaging and the Swiss operations on converting. Karlville Swiss’ focus will be to expand sales and service support for the EMEA region for pouch machines, slitters and laminators.
Karlville Swiss will likewise work hand-in-hand with Karlville USA to expand HP Pack Ready efforts in the EMEA region.
Karlville USA will maintain management of shrink sleeve converting globally.
In parallel to its new Swiss operations, Karlville is collaborating with fabrication partners to expand flat-bottom pouch sales. Utilizing Karlville service support in the US and Europe, Karlville will sell and service flat-bottom pouch machines.
