Shrink Wrap Packaging for Breweries

According to new LCBO legislation, there are very specific guidelines for how a beer tray must be wrapped. The shrink film used must be recyclable, of a certain thickness (2.5mm), and be wrapped in accordance to their specifications. LCBO Product Packaging Standards and Chemical Guidelines can be found here.

Legislation like this is problematic; especially for micro-breweries with less resources, as the process and install of certain shrink packaging equipment is very nuanced. Here at Gertex Solutions, with over 30 years experience in the industry, we are shrink packaging experts! We create Packaging Solutions Built for You so let our experts assess your needs, create a strategy, and find a packaging system that's right for you, today! Read on to find out more about our beer and beverage packaging solutions.

The Switch To Automation

Smart manufacturing has made it possible to leverage technology in ways we’ve never seen before. This is doubly true for the beer and beverage packaging industry. For example, real-time diagnostics are helpful for minimizing downtime and ensuring the optimal performance of the equipment.

It is also critical that safety features are built into your system. Not only do you need to protect the safety of employees to reduce the risk of injury in the workplace. But it’s also important to minimize potential damage to the products due to equipment malfunction.

Finally, consider the ease of integration in your workplace. While employees need to be trained on proper use and application, there is no need to bring in a complicated system that causes confusion among employees.

Top-notch technology is designed to adjust to your evolving business requirements, giving you the tools to maintain your competitive edge without the need to invest in new systems over and over again. Bring in the right equipment in the first place, which will give you the ongoing ability to streamline and adjust in-house processes as needed.

How We Can Help With Your Business Performance Goals

Improve Efficiencies

We are experts in packaging automation and optimization. We're partnered with the best suppliers and equipment manufacturers in North America so we can offer customers innovative technology that greatly increases packaging throughput and efficiency. Maintain the highest level of packaging strength and quality of protection while improving the efficiency of your operations.

Reduce Costs

Improving the efficiency of your operation lends itself to a reduction in cost-per-package. Automated packaging systems are much faster than manual packaging, and often a single operator can oversee multiple automatic machines at once - helping you reduce labour costs. High-tech sensors and software measure the exact amount of material required for each package, helping to reduce material waste and cost.

Increase Throughput

A boxer knows that speed wins fights, and it's no different in business. We know slow speeds in any form of your business can hurt your bottom line, and it's hard enough already to maintain a competitive advantage. That's why Speed is one of the four cornerstones of Gertex Solutions. We believe there's value in everybody's warehouse, and we give you the right tools to find it.

Delight Your Customers

Packaging is now part of the user experience and we can help you leverage this to delight your customers. Make your shipments stand out from the crowd. Gertex Solutions helps your brand stay visible, from our hands into your customers. 

Reposition Labour

By automating packaging processes, we help your company to free up capital that can be used towards profit focused areas of work. We do not believe in reducing labour, but rather refocusing it to core areas of your business. Additionally, automating and simplifying processes helps to maintain consistency and streamline operations in your warehouse or distribution center.

Drive Sustainability

Thinking about the future our industry is important to us. The majority of our packaging material offerings are made from fully-recyclable material. Advanced pieces of equipment reduce the amount of material required for a secure package or pallet load. Innovative packaging materials can offer more secure loads with the same or even less amounts of material.
