May 7, 2014

The preferred vendor agreement was signed in April.

Amcor Flexibles Asia Pacific has announced that it will partner with Atlas Converting Equipment Ltd. for the supply of Titan slitter rewinders after signing a preferred vendor agreement in April.

In a move designed to support Amcor Flexibles' rapid growth throughout Asia, Amcor Flexibles Asia Pacific (AFAP) and Atlas Converting Equipment Ltd. will "work together to leverage each other's experience and commitment to innovation and technology, cementing their places as leaders in the packaging and converting industries."

The agreement, which was signed by Amcor Flexibles Asia Pacific President, Ralf Wunderlich and Atlas Converting Equipment Ltd. Managing Director Alan Johnson, provides standard machine specifications and options, together with a simplified process for ordering, delivery, installation and commissioning.

Ralf Wunderlich, president of AFAP says, "This strategic partnership supports Amcor's growth agenda, enhancing our ability to rapidly respond to the needs of our customers in this high-growth region."

Already this year, Amcor has ordered four Titan slitter rewinders as part of the agreement, which will include quarterly reviews to monitor progress.

"As the largest flexible converter in the Asia Pacific region, Amcor's choice to appoint Atlas Converting as their preferred vendor is a win for us and no doubt this relationship will strongly benefit both partners," says Johnson.

"We are very pleased to be partnering with Atlas and are confident that with their global reach and expertise we will be well supported throughout Asia Pacific to continue to deliver the safest, most innovative packaging solutions to our customers," Wunderlich adds.
