Schur Packaging Systems, Inc. ( announces the opening of their new flexible packaging facility in Elk Grove Village, IL to support its fill and seal bagging system.

The company has relocated from Schaumburg, IL to this larger facility to enable further expansion of their flexible packaging business in North America. According to Kevin Howard, president, Schur Packaging Systems, “This larger facility will enable a 3x increase in capacity for our packaging products as we continue our growth into the North America packaging market.”

The Schur®Star bagging system allows companies to package a wide variety of products using Schur’s pre-made bags and SchurStar packaging machine. The two are designed to work in combination to deliver as much as 80 filled and sealed bags per minute with fast changeovers and simple machine operation.

Says Howard, “There is virtually no limit to the products you can package on this machine and changeovers take less than 10 minutes. This system enables small companies to have sophisticated packaging with a relatively low investment while providing large companies a cost effective way to test and launch into new markets.”
