Since 1919, Fabricon Products Inc.
has been recognized world-wide as an innovator of flexible
packaging by producing a wide variety of quality paper and film products for a
variety of industries.
In the beginning, Fabricon
worked with bakeries to develop the best wax paper bread wrap money
could buy. As the years passed, Fabricon developed an array of printed waxed
bands used with cellophane film to help bring the bakery industry into the film
age. Fabricon Products was also one of the first to develop polyethylene bags
used for bread and bun packaging. This example of Fabriconís innovation has
stood the test of time and is currently used for wrapping bakery products today.
After establishing itself
as a leading supplier in flexible packaging, the company then embarked on the
development of a new type of packaging for Fried Pie Snacks. This fried food
product presented a number of new packaging challenges. Fabricon engineered
equipment to produce a unique type of packaging made from Glassine Paper with
special properties specifically for packaging this type of food item.
This story continues into
the early 1960ís, when Fabricon began supplying flexible packaging to the dairy
industry. Fabricon worked together with the Anderson Machine Company to develop
the first hot melt, coated paper, roll stock packaging for ice cream novelties.
This innovation helped the ice cream novelty industry change its packaging from
paper bags to individually wrapped ice cream products. These products are still
used today. As new ice cream novelty products were developed, Fabricon again led
the way by introducing new packaging products like the first two-side, coated
bullet wrap, gloss coated paper, and other premium packaging products.
In the 1980ís, a
driving force in packaging was the marketing of consumer snack items. In order to
drive consumer demand, new and exciting flexible packaging concept needed to be
developed. Fabricon looked for other types of raw materials that could be used
for these innovative new flexible packaging products. Working with film
manufacturers, Fabricon developed new types of packaging using metallized, white
and clear OPP film for premium flexible packaging products. Fabricon led the
industry in the development of these new products and introduced OPP films
packaging to the ice cream, bakery, candy and gum markets.
In 1983, Fabricon
acquired Spec-Fab, allowing it to expand into another area of flexible
packaging, that of pouch making.
Today, Fabricon Products
is recognized as the premier manufacturer of flexible packaging products. Fabricon
is the first to offer film packaging for ice cream sandwiches, the
first to manufacture surfaced printed metallized film packaging, the first to
produce embossed film packaging, the first to introduce film packaging as
lollipop wraps, and the first to develop hologram material for pouches, bags and
