The benefits of using a company such as PackTech Solutions Pty Ltd :

The company does not sell packaging machinery or equipment, packaging materials or products. This is advantageous in its objective delivery of solutions to packaging queries. All project income is derived solely from consulting services performed. No sales commissions are accepted on recommended materials and or equipment from within the packaging supplier industry.

The company’s aim is to build a relationship with the client and to provide the best possible solution considering the most effective cost and elements of adequate protection.

Experience has often revealed that the problems of packaging production lines become the responsibility of the plant engineers. Machinery, and not the science of packaging, is such an engineer’s forte.  PackTech Solutions Pty Ltd  has extensive experience in production lines and enjoys working in a team with  clients’ staff in order to improve overall packaging efficiency.

So often, companies are oblivious to opportunities which could make substantial savings across the board in primary, secondary and tertiary packaging, including storage and transport.

Structured Approach

Clients often ask PackTech Solutions initially to consult in a confined area of packaging but are open to any additional cost-saving recommendations. These savings regularly surprise a client and can be found in packaging materials, equipment, productivity, quality or a general, greater satisfaction with the package.

  • PackTech Solutions Pty Ltd will at all times :

    • protect the safety, health, and welfare of the public and the client in the fulfillment of professional duties, and will refuse assignments rather than compromise personal standards of integrity.
    • accept only contracts in which they have complete competence.
    • treat all information relating to the business affairs of a client as confidential, including the client’s anonymity, if requested. Confidentiality is highly regarded by the company.
    • pursue knowledge and professional development in packaging to provide clients with up-to-date advice.
    • charge a  fee structure commensurate with general consulting fee structures.
    • offer sincere observations and recommendations to its clients
