Client Stories

Trays may appear to be very similar, yet every product can be prepared in many different ways. Each decision influences their storage conditions, weight (price), warehousing possibilities, colour and transparency.

We always offer our clients full service meaning we always start by determining the needs. We can then offer our solutions so that in later phases you will have the least amount of problems.

As we produce our own PP and rPET plastic we can take into consideration the final product’s needs and peculiarities already when producing the raw material.

We think along with you on every step.

Step 1DETERMINING THE CLIENT’S NEEDS

The chosen plastic and product created depend on numerous details (temperature of the food packaging and storage environment; type and temperature of food being packaged; desired shelf-life; design requirements, colour etc.) and it is our duty to understand all the details before making a solution offer.

Step 2PREPARING THE FINAL PRODUCT ACCORDING TO CLIENT EXPECTATIONS

We produce most of the plastic required, ourselves! We are especially proud of our rPET material which is 100% produced from post consumed materials. The rPET plastic production process is also approved by the EFSA. The plastic’s exact characteristics are chosen according to the client’s expectations for their new product.

Step 3TEST BATCH PRODUCTION AND TESTING

To be convinced that the packaging is suitable for the client’s product and packaging equipment we will produce a small test batch for the client. We would like an EstPak Plastik representative to be present at the initial testing to be convinced that the packaging is appropriate or to map details that require adjustment.

Step 4WE ADHERE TO PROMISED PRODUCTION DEADLINES

We use three latest generation thermoformers that are identical, giving us the required reliability and flexibility. The annually produced 160 million trays show that we can serve larger and smaller companies.

Step 5TRANSPORTATION AND LOGISTICS

Thanks to stable and reliable logistics’ partners we can guarantee in-time delivery to all our clients regardless of the distance between us.

In-time delivery across the sea is not a problem

When EstPak Plastik still had its production in Hiiu County, foreign clients often needed to be convinced about how we can achieve timely delivery from such a distance. We were often asked: “there is a sea between Hiiu County and the mainland, but then there is also the second sea between Estonia and Finland. How can we guarantee in-time delivery, especially in autumn/winter season?“

Our answer was and still is – we use only the best partners who have proven their capabilities.

Today EstPak Plastik has moved its production to the mainland, close to Saku, so “one challenge” in the transportation chain has been eliminated. We have never had difficulties in serving foreign clients with the same level of delivery reliability as domestic clients.

Our large clients in Finland have never registered delayed delivery caused by EstPak Plastik. This is because of our long-term trustworthy cooperation with transport partners who know our needs and always take them into consideration.

Flexible packaging – subject to the client’s production peculiarities

One of the strengths of EstPak Plastik is its flexibility which it possesses in terms of production quantities and packaging methods. If the client’s production peculiarities require packaging to be stored in boxes in a specific direction or different coloured tape or other special marking is required, we are capable of fulfilling the requirements.

In cooperation with the Snellmans Köttförädling AB Finland we have developed the use of specific toned tapes and colour marking as well as a packaging method and placement. We do not only consider sales to be important, but also the client satisfaction and comfort of use that goes along with it.

Lower weight

The rib pattern of the packaging allows reducing the packaging weight while maintaining sufficient strength of the box. We have all noticed that the majority of production on store shelves has a ribbed pattern in one way or the other. The ribs have many functions:

  • The rib design gives packaging an attractive appearance
  • The product is stronger than a product with the same thickness and smooth sides
  • The ribs mean less material is required and the product is lighter. Using less material means less pollution therefore the product is environment-friendly
  • The ribs direct the circulation of gas within the packaging better
  • The ribs direct the excessive fluids towards the middle of the packaging where they are sucked up by the absorbent pad.

Most of our product development has been done based on these nuances. Our aim is to help the client avoid over packaging by providing optimal packaging solutions.

Smaller storage space

The stacking between boxes saves transportation and storage costs. Nobody wants to store tens of pallets filled with packaging materials and therefore ordering small quantities more frequently is preferred. Obviously, every transport occurrence means the delivery run creates unnecessary CO2 emissions which unnecessarily harm the environment.

EstPak Plastik has addressed the issue in its product development and has carried out form modifications that create as low of a stacking height as required by the client’s packaging line.

Show more

More boxes than before can consequently be stacked into the same space which means more packaging on the same transportation unit or in the client’s warehouse. The client is delivered the same number of pallets but with up to 25% more packaging. Instead of 4 deliveries, now only 3 are required.

Environment-friendlier solutions

As a plastic producer EstPak Plastik considers how to place less plastic on the market. We have therefore taken into use environment-friendly additional materials such as chalk and talk. Using these additional materials in products reduces the amount of plastic required which again is environment-friendly.

The additional substances allow creating a unique material – for example, by creating a matt appearance.

Our long-term client HK Scan Estonia set an objective to create a packaging that would be matt black on the exterior side. The premium appearance packaging was developed using the mentioned additional materials. The client was very satisfied with the result.

Environment conserving behaviour

EstPak Plastik always aims to be as environment conserving as possible in its activities. Such behaviour is witnessed by the recollection of cardboard containers and pallets from clients.

Clean and proper cardboard containers collected from clients are sent out again with goods thus new waste is not created so light-handedly.

Our large clients such as Snellmans Köttförädling AB in Finland are very satisfied with the system as it reduces the client’s costs for waste and is a grateful environment conserving activity!
