Maco PKG Signs on as Latest Dow PacXpert™ Packaging Technology Licensee in North America

Midland, Mich. - January 08, 2018 - Flexible packaging company, Maco PKG (Maco), recently signed on as the latest licensee of PacXpert™ Packaging Technology from The Dow Chemical Company. As a licensee, Maco will now drive this technology through manufacturing and sales in North America.

Maco’s manufacturing expertise enables not only the ability to manufacture PacXpert, but also to fill it through Maco’s co-packing capabilities, which provides a turnkey approach for brand owners.

“Maco has been a strategic collaborator for Dow over the past few years and this agreement solidifies our joint commitment and belief in the technology,” said Fabrice Digonnet, global leader for PacXpert Packaging Technology. “We believe that Maco is a key collaborator in proliferating the adoption of PacXpert throughout North America.”

PacXpert Packaging Technology is a packaging design that enables transition from traditional rigid containers to flexible packaging with sustainability benefits and convenience. The distinctive, flexible stand-up pouch is durable, easy to use, lightweight and collapsible. PacXpert is compatible with many different types of applications that span liquids, solids, edible and non-edible materials. Dow trademarked the technology as PacXpert after acquiring the global license to the innovative Smart Bottle™ technology on which PacXpert is founded.

PacXpert has reached 75 packages on the shelf globally, which reaffirms the commitment from Dow, Maco and several other industry leaders around the world to making this packaging technology a success in a variety of different applications.

“We are very excited to be an official new member of the PacXpert team,” said Tom Seymour, Maco account executive. “Between Dow’s technical expertise and our manufacturing capabilities, we feel like we are well positioned for making PacXpert a success in North America.”
