Flair Flexible Packaging, Appleton, Wis., opened a new facility in El Zapote, Jalisco, Mexico, providing full converting and quality assurance, material management and logistic services, customer support and sales functions to manufacturers throughout Mexico.

“Our new site provides local service and operational support, increasing the availability of a variety of flexible packaging materials to our customers throughout Mexico,” says Alejandro Nigro, director of Latin American sales.

The new location also provides Mexican processors’ local access to Flair’s global network of flexible packaging resources.

Located a short distance from Guadalajara, Flair Mexico will be a central resource for its extensive stock packaging program, which includes a wide variety of commonly used bags, pouches and rollstock films, in addition to Flair’s PLATiNUM forming and non-forming films, LiDynamics lidding films and FlairPak vacuum pouches. Flair Mexico also provides access to a complete line of custom products, an advanced 10-color rotogravure printing process and its brand color management program.

The 33,000-square-foot facility includes office areas, warehousing space and two production areas to accommodate current pouch making and film slitting operations while providing space for future expanding and manufacturing capabilities.
