Schaltag for Sealed Air: Building a Blow-Off Device for the Removal of Surface Water within Packaging Lines for Fresh Meat and Cheese

Sealed Air is the world’s leading supplier of systems and solutions for packaging technology in the food industry and is located in Root (Lucerne).

Material procurement and pre-assembly of the blow off devices is performed at the Schaltag production site in the Czech Republic. Final assembly and customising of the two basic models for the respective different customer-specific and use-specific detailed requirements are performed in Switzerland. Parallel to the assembly, Schaltag is also entrusted with the refurbishment of these devices. The benefits for Sealed Air include:

  • Comprehensive production outsourcing to create internal personnel resources and space resources for strategic projects (research, prototype building)
  • Cooperation based on competence and experience value gained during another joint project
  • Proximity of final assembly for maximum flexibility, with more price-efficient pre-production in the Czech Republic
  • Highest flexibility regarding availability thanks to a framework contract with a defined number of units
  • End product “Made in Switzerland”
