Capabilities_Main-Image

Many shops advertise as “full service” – PolyFirst truly is. With over 50 years of combined customer service experience, an in-house design team and state-of-the-art equipment for printing, extruding, laminating and converting custom packaging, we can work with you from idea to fulfillment.

Printing

PolyFirst is the preferred choice for custom packaging and custom-design printing. Our state-of-the-art printing presses print up to 10+ colors, allowing for greater flexibility when designing a package. In addition to bags of all shapes and sizes, we also print rollstock for vertical and horizontal form-fill-and- seal (V/F/F/S) applications.

Our design team can work with practically any art file you provide. Or let us work with you to create the ideal package for your product.

Extruding

Not all bag makers extrude their own plastic. At PolyFirst we do our own extrusion to guarantee the quality of our work. Plastic for bags is created from virgin resin by a blown film extrusion method.

    • BOPP or MetBOPP
    • LLDPE/LDPE blend sealant
    • HDPE
    • Polypropylene
    • COEX – can include nylon or EVOH

Laminating

PolyFirst laminates in-house for better quality control of our laminated roll stock and laminated pouch projects. Our Super Simplex SL laminating machine and numerous film options allow us to create the structures and overall packaging you’re looking for.

Converting

Our converting capabilities are divided into two areas – Speedy Pac for bags on roll and Flat bag for individually cut bags.

Our flat bag machinery ranges from classic Ro-An Polystar side-weld bag machines to the more modern Hudson 2106W-25 Automatic Wicketer. We make our standup pouches with a Totani BH-60D, and we have a Hudson pouch machine arriving soon with features similar to the Totani.

All our machines are equipped with additional features and attachments that help support your custom projects.

PolyFirst’s Speedy Pac machines have been custom-developed in-house to offer us greater flexibility and quality control. This is how we create all of our roll products, including Speedy Pac/ pre-opened, POR’s, Stretch sleeves and more.

Rail car!

In 2016 we added our own rail spur direct to our door for resin delivery. It holds up to five cars, each with a massive 200,000-pound capacity! This means we don’t have to truck our resin – we take delivery on site to cut down delivery time.
