LAKE VILLA, Ill., Nov. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Vonco Products, a leading producer of high-performance flexible packaging products, announced today that it has created a new division designed specifically to focus on the liquid-tight packaging market. The new division—LiquaLoc Flexibles—was unveiled at PACK EXPO in Chicago. With more than 60 years of experience in materials, bag and pouch design, seals, closures and fitments, Vonco created LiquaLoc as a way to bring its liquid-tight packaging experience, proprietary processes and manufacturing expertise to a broader audience. LiquaLoc's dedicated team of sales, operations and engineering professionals brings decades of industry service and a deep understanding of the challenges product owners and managers face. Creating liquid-tight packaging is a strong part of Vonco's history, having pioneered the VonSeal® 95 kPa liquid-tight specimen shipping bag over 15 years ago. "Flexible packaging offers unmatched versatility for package design and performance, and we have extensive experience in developing unique flexible solutions," said Tim Morgan, Partner and Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Vonco Products. "With the Launch of LiquaLoc Flexibles, we've got an opportunity to focus on this rapidly evolving market segment and leverage our engineering and material knowledge to help our customers gain a competitive edge with their packaging." Whether used in applications for food and beverage, industrial or household chemicals, or health and beauty products, liquid-tight packaging relies on the integrity of the packaging material, sealing techniques and the closure/fitment interface to protect the contents from contamination or escape—every time, without fail. The launch of LiquaLoc Flexibles also kicked off a series of capital investments designed to expand Vonco's capabilities and capacity in the liquid-tight packaging market. To enhance current production, a custom-built, environmentally controlled room has been constructed inside the Lake Villa facility to house a new, state-of-the-art high-speed pouch manufacturing line. In addition, a ceremony attended by Wisconsin Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch was held on October 27 in Salem, Wisconsin, to celebrate breaking ground on a brand new facility that will be the home of Vonco Products and its LiquaLoc division in 2017.
