PPi Technologies Group / Redi-2-DrinQ Group
PPi Technologies GROUP started in 1996 by Stuart C. Murray, who wanted to sell both machinery and consumables as a “total system” rather than selling just StandUp pouch machinery. A single source machine supply very often did not offer the customer the best solution. This custom approach resulted in a joint venture with Laudenberg of Germany, Nishibe/Altech Packaging Systems of Japan and Cellpack of Switzerland in a new company called PROFILE® Packaging. The company was formed to sell machinery that manufactures pouches with slider and press-to-close zippers from printed laminated roll stock films and also offers prefabricated pouches with spout fitments. A first for the North American market!
This was rapidly followed with financial investments with Leepack of Korea and exclusive distribution rights with Abtech of South Africa to offer prefabricated fill-seal StandUp pouch machinery through the aptly named PakSource™ Global. In 2006, PLG Korea, PGS Global Sales and PCG China offices were opened for trading within these countries offering USA industry-standard pouch machinery and pouch supplies from around the world.
