Ronsberg, Germany

A small paper mill in southern Bavaria formed the basis for our more than 430 years of packaging history.  From this same location, in Ronsberg Germany, our innovative products are made, which can now be found throughout the world. What was once a supplier to local dairies has become an international market and technology leader for flexible packaging materials – as well as the world’s leading manufacturer of tube laminates, retortable stand-up pouches and soup cube packaging.  We can offer all your required technologies under one roof.  Starting with our Prepress, going to gravure printing where we can also offer in-house laquer and ink production.  With all aspects of print controlled in house we achieve the highest possible print quality for our customers’ products.  Following printing, products are sent to lamination or coating where we offer bespoke solutions for your needs, using solvent free, solvent based, glue or extrusion lamination/coating. Our last production step is the winding and packing.  Did you know that around 17 trucks are leaving Huhtamaki Ronsberg everyday with packaging material.
We are proud of our history, which inspires us to keep our tradition of innovation and excellence alive into the future.

Prague, Czech Republic 

Since its access the market with flexible packaging in 1992, Huhtamaki Flexible Packaging Czech has achieved a sustainable growth to the present position of one of the leading European suppliers of multi-layer flexible packaging foils, shrinkable sleeve labels (shrink sleeves) and roll labels with the highest achievable printing quality compared to the other printing technologies which are used in the field of producing flexible packaging foils. We are specialized especially in short and medium printing series and in all possible material specifications in this field.
In order to achieve maximum flexibility and optimization of production, we use the technology of dry and wet offset in compliance with ISO 12647 standard (ISO coated V2) in combination with small, medium and large presses. This combination of technology and presses efficiency provides our customers with ideal lead-times and financial savings depending on order size.
We offer outstanding printing quality, significant financial savings and time flexibility as well as a complex and economical solution for the production of all types of print runs. Our print technology will enable you to follow more closely the major trends on the European FMCG market, too (smaller production quantities, shorter print runs, more frequent text and design changes, greater need and frequency of promotions, higher demand for flexibility, etc.).
Of course we also take an active part in R&D projects and innovations in close cooperation with our strategic suppliers and customers.
