Mecapack at Senate

Mecapack awarded by ‘’Productivez !’’ label

Based in Pouzauges, in the region of Vendée (France), Mecapack started in 1947 with a small mechanics workshop in Paris. In 2013, Mecapack, member of the Proplast Group, has a production site of 5850 m², 3 subsidiaries in Europe and a network of distributors around the world. N°1 manufacturer of tray sealing and thermoforming machines in France, Mecapack has always invested in its production capacity.

This investment is today awarded by the “Productivez!” label.

This label rewards companies involved in a modernization approach by a productive investment. This way, their actions are benefit to both business growths and economic development of the territory where they are implemented. The aim of the “Productivez” label introduced by SYMOP (production machines and technologies syndicate) is to promote the competitiveness of small and medium sized companies to maintain and stimulate the activity and employment in France. The fact that the ceremony took place in Senate emphasizes on the public authorities’ commitment beside the companies.

Modernization of the productive tools is a key advantage in competition.

In this context, Mecapack focused a part of its business strategy on the After Sales Service quality: a training session is automatically suggested to users of our machines. As every machine is unique, a huge network of technicians grants a personalized and responsive follow-up to every customer: intervention anywhere in Europe, spare parts retailing, renting of replacement equipment, reconditioning, maintenance contract,

In order to improve its After Sales Service reactivity, and especially the break-down service dedicated to customers, the company invested in 2010 in a 4 axes horizontal machining center with palettisation system.

This investment leaded to an obvious productivity growth. The center set up and the resulting resources optimizations brought Mecapack to hire 2 milling machine operators and suggest a dedicated training to the After Sales Services employees. The company and the customers took productivity benefit of the production capacity 17.7% growth!

On the 16th of October 2013, Mecapack had the honor to receive in Senate the “Productivez!” label from Philippe Darniche, Vendée Senator, and Bruno Retailleau, Senator and President of the Vendée department council.

Mecapack keeps investing by acquiring 3 new machining centers in 2013-2014. These machines reinforce Mecapack industrial strategy. They will allow to decrease the manufacturing delay and meet the reactivity requirements of the market.
