Let's take a brief look at what one of the tests we do looks like.
New member of PEBAL GROUP
PEBAL GROUP a.s. with headquarters in Dobřany in the Czech Republic, announces the acquisition of a majority ownership stake in the Czech manufacturing company MILCOM MILPACK s.r.o.
MILCOM MILPACK s.r.o., based in Dvůr Králové nad Labem, continues the tradition of operating the MILCOM a.s. production plant, where the beginnings of activities related to packaging machines date back to the mid-1980s. Until 2002, the company mainly produced spare parts and repairs of dairy machines. Since 2002, the company has renewed the production of new machines, mainly focusing on the packaging of butter and quark. Due to many years of experience and innovations in the packaging of paste-like products, the main activity of the company has been transformed into the production of bags (stand-up pouches), for which MILCOM MILPACK is now recognized as bag-maker including the former core area of machines production.
PEBAL GROUP a.s. is 100% Czech owned family company, with four production plants in CZ & SK. PEBAL GROUP a.s. specializes on the extrusion of PE films and the production of flexible packaging for various industries (food, hygiene, construction, agriculture). PEBAL GROUP a.s. offers a wide range of sustainable packaging solutions such as recyclable packaging, packaging with recycled content, biodegradable packaging and bag-making of stand-up pouches, supporting the unique flexo printing technology with EGP (Expanded Gamut Printing). Other engineering activities include production and service for the dairy sector.
We welcome colleagues from MILCOM MILPACK s.r.o. in our PEBAL family and we are looking forward to working together.
SPECIAL AWARD OBAL ROKU 2023
Last month, during the awards evening of the OBAL ROKU 2023 competition, we officially received the award in the process & technology category.
With great enthusiasm, we also accepted the special Packaging Print Prize for exceptional quality / innovation in packaging printing under the patronage of the Společnost tisku z.s.
We really appreciate that the long-term development of our printing department has been beautifully recognized in this way, and it is mainly thanks to the long-term and hard work of our employees that we have achieved such success.
We thank our customers for their cooperation and trust, which motivates us to push our innovations further!
AWARD OBAL roku 2023
As part of the 30th year of the OBAL ROKU competition, we won an award in the process & technology category!
Our solution for Multi-Layer Coffee Barrier Packaging combines 6 different motifs in a single printing job!
The author of the structure of product is Václav Zedník.
Thanks to the flexo printing method using EGP (Expanded Gamut Printing), this solution offers an excellent alternative to rotogravure and traditional spot color flexo printing.
Using this technique, we achieve high-quality printing using CMYK process colors with OGV (orange, green and violet) additive colors.
This advanced printing method reduces dependence on Pantone shades up to 90%, which leads to lower consumption of materials (paints, thinners and printed materials), energy consumption and CO2 emissions incl. optimization of color management.
We thank our colleagues for their great work and our partners and customers for their trust and cooperation.
PRS Green label 2023
Pebal Group is a partner in a sustainable pallet recycling system.
As a company, we try to think ecologically in all sorts of ways. By cooperating with PRS Pooling, which refurbishes worn and damaged pallets, we are trying to put these pallets back into circulation. This system not only reduces the amount of packaging waste, but also reduces the carbon footprint and supports the multiple use of products.
For our joint effort, we were awarded the Green Label certification and we will continue our efforts in the future.
