■Company Outline

GENERAL PACKER is a specialized manufacturer of automatic packaging machines for food, chemicals, and medical supplies. The company has a large market share in rotary packaging machines for dry goods such as dried bonito flakes, flour and confectionery (powder, granule, and solid).

■Main Products

General Packer mainly manufactures and distributes pouch packaging machines and packaging systems for dry goods. There are three core packaging machines: pouch filling-sealing machines, pouch forming-filling-sealing machines, and gas-flushing type packaging machines.
Pouch filling-sealing machines and gas-flushing type packaging machines fill a predetermined amount of confectionery and powder into a set pouch and seal it. Gas-flushing type packaging machines replace oxygen in the pouch with nitrogen gas in order to maintain the flavor of dried bonito flakes or nuts, and seal the pouch. Pouch forming-filling-sealing machines fill a predetermined amount of confectionery and powder into a set pouch and seal it. Pouches are formed from rolled films.

■Core Competence

General Packer holds the top domestic market share in rotary packaging machines for dry goods, and has an advantage in manufacturing the machines to package goods that are either difficult to be packed or that require high quality packaging.
Recently, we have started to manufacture a number of packaging machines to meet increasing demand for packaging with pouches with zipper and stand pouches with zipper.
With the high gas-substitution technology, we hold approximately 100% domestic market share in gas-flushing type packaging machines for bonito flakes in mini-packages. We have also commercialized pouch filling-sealing machines and pouch forming-filling-sealing machines that have a ready-loaded gas-flushing system that is derived from the high gas-substitution technology.
