Based in southern Slovakia, privately-owned Bagpress s.r.o. is a leading producer of square bottom bags and luxury packaging in the region, serving customers in Hungary, Slovakia, Czech Republic and other neighbouring EU markets.
“We have been producing flexo printed paper packaging products since 2008,” explains Zoltán Cséplő, CEO. “The main production items are corrugated boxes and 1kg paper bags with a square bottom for flour. Our bags are made of 70-90 gsm white kraft paper and printed with one to eight colours. We produce flour bags indirectly for the Tesco, Kaufland, Lidl, CBA, Spar, Aldi retail chains.”
The company has a wide range of printing and converting machinery, including machines from Japan and Germany. It converts paper manufactured in the EU. “We also produce corrugated packaging for our partners, but also for our own products”, adds Cséplő.
“The production of boxes has increased in recent years, so we recently added a new CLG Gluer from Lamina System,” explains Szilárd Cséplő. “We opted for this machine to help reduce the amount of hand-work being utilised and increase automation within the factory. This new machine has already had a good impact on our business, as it has significantly reduced the amount of manual work in the box production department.”
He continues, “Our task is to meet customer demands for replacing plastic packaging with paper-based packaging, as it is ecological and recyclable. In order to meet the requirements for packaging boxes and materials, we check the requirements of our partners and implemented significant packaging developments. After testing the machine, we have improved our packaging offering. Feedback on suitability for correcting our manufacturing process is very important to us. Custom packaging is the best solution and we plan to use the new Lamina CLG Gluer to test the packaging and adapt it to customer requirements.”
