In today’s world of labor shortages coupled with supply chain bottlenecks, getting your finished goods packed in their final form is becoming an increasingly difficult task. Powder producers are struggling to take on the tedious task of down packing material from bulk sacks into smaller formats. Companies requiring their material in specific-sized pack-outs or specific weights for batching can cause downstream headaches. There is now also an added cost that powder producers are being charged to fill these tasks, and some powder providers are forced to tell their customers to take it or leave it.
Elcan Industries, Tuckahoe, NY, is here to help with all of your down packing and contract repackaging needs. We understand the need for strict adherence to packaging specifications and the ramifications it has if the material comes in at a different weight than desired. This is why Elcan Industries is proud to offer down-packing services as part of our extensive portfolio of contract manufacturing offerings. Elcan can pack down from super sacks, drums, or totes into various smaller packaging formats. Elcan can assist companies with packing into 100, 50, 25, or even ten-pound containers.
Our facility offers full-scale down packaging solutions that include labeling, sampling, and stretch wrapping to ensure that by the time the product is delivered, it meets all the necessary specifications. Furthermore, Elcan can ship directly to customers, eliminating an entire shipping process step. Elcan also has a facility in Gastonia, North Carolina, capable of bulk truck unloading and transloading. This allows customers to take material directly from the port and down pack it into super sacks or smaller packaging requirements if desired.
Elcan’s contract manufacturing services reach far beyond just down packing. Elcan has a proprietary line of sifting machines that can sieve down to ten microns and be used for fine classification or just a quick scalp screen. Elcan offers dry powder blending, hammer milling, electromagnetic separation, and delumping services as well. If you have a powder handling problem, we have a solution.
