Custom Flexible Packaging


When it comes to flexible packaging materials, we are often asked why a manufacturer or food processor would choose Atlantic rather than buy direct from the bag or film manufacturer.

The answer is simple.

Atlantic offers a breadth of products and services that address every aspect of a customer’s packaging needs.

We have long-standing partnerships with extruders and film manufacturers that we believe are the best in the business. We offer advanced, high-quality materials at competitive prices while also supplying a full range of packaging supplies, making us a one-stop source for all of your packaging needs.

Beyond our offerings in equipment, materials, and supplies, Atlantic has highly specialized technicians that ensure your packaging systems and materials are running at optimal performance.


Coextruded Barrier Films
Atlantic offers a broad range of polyethylene based co-ex, nylon, and EVOH barrier films. Custom manufacturing allows these films to be tailored to meet any of your barrier requirements.

Printed Specialty Films
We supply our customers a wide variety of custom printed films. Printing capabilities include up to eight colors on single and laminated structured films. Applications include tray pack and lidding films as well as parts and pouch bags.

Polyethylene Bags and Sheeting

Shrink Films
Shrink films are available in either polyethylene or polyolefin for your wrapping and bundling requirements. They can be printed in up to eight colors with line or process prints in roll stock or converted wicketed bags.

Industrial Films and Bags
We offer box liners, large and small poly bags, printed bags and pouches, can liners, and reclosables. Our films and bags are offered in a variety of different substrates including low-density polyethylene (LDPE), linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), high-density polyethylene HDPE, metallocene linear low-density polyethylene (mLLDPE), co-extruded multi-layer films, and monolayer films.


The equipment we offer for flexible packaging includes full lines for case erector packaging; vertical form, fill, and seal equipment; bag inserters; horizontal form, fill, and seal equipment; vertical bagging systems; vacuum packaging equipment; automated bag on a roll systems; and shrink equipment.

Beyond equipment sales, Atlantic is in uniquely positioned to be able to offer technical expertise and equipment integration. We design full packaging systems at competitive pricing – from equipment and stretch film, to folded cartons, labeling, tapes, strapping, and more.


Packaging Lines
We design and integrate ergonomically designed equipment installations for packaging efficiency. Automation equipment optimizes your packaging line for efficiency, accuracy, and cost savings.

Vertical Form, Fill, and Seal Equipment
These machines are a great solution for bagging a wide range of items from frozen chicken to plates and other stacked products. They can also be easily optimized with scales, counters, and feeders for your unique packaging needs, ensuring consistency and product protection. We are proud to represent Matrix as an industry leader in equipment solutions for flexible packaging.

Bag Inserters
These machines allow for more efficient bulk case filling by assisting in the insertion of a bag inside a box or tray. We offer automatic and semi-automatic options that provide precise bag placement for quality results.

Horizontal Form, Fill, and Seal Equipment
These automated packaging systems form, fill, and seal products into flexible pouches or bags by conveying material through the machine in a horizontal configuration. These machines are ideal for high-speed operations that handle large volumes of product.

Vacuum Packaging Equipment
Automatic and semi-automatic vacuum packaging equipment allow businesses to increase the shelf life of the food they produce. Vacuum packaging and modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) equipment are great options for maintaining food quality.

Automated Bag on a Roll Systems 
These automated packaging systems allow operators to drop items into pre-opened bags before the equipment seals the parcel shut, encapsulating the product. Save your packaging operation time when bagging a variety of items with automated bag on a roll systems.

Shrink Equipment
We offer a wide selection of shrink packaging equipment including manual and fully automated systems. Every piece of shrink equipment we sell is supported by a sales and technical team that understands the importance of rapid response, overnight production, and the requirement for limited downtime.

Our Film Lab is an incredible scientific resource that provides an unparalleled benefit to our flexible packaging customers. This state-of-the-art facility is designed to assist in the flexible packaging audit process.

Here our engineers can test the properties of a film that our customer is currently using and gauge their needs as far as the application where the film is being used.


We learn a great deal about film properties and capabilities when we test in our Film Lab. The data we collect and our expert analysis provide direction to our sales and technical personnel, so they can make recommendations that will add value to our customers’ packaging operations.


Our film specialists use the equipment in our Film Lab to provide evidence-based results that demonstrate to our customers exactly how a film can affect their overall packaging performance.

Using this data and then monitoring the performance of the films used in flexible packaging applications promotes trust in our process, materials, and overall packaging service.

You can trust Atlantic to provide materials, equipment, and service above and beyond the competition.

Learn more about the Film Lab.


The initial audit we perform for any new customer is the foundation of Atlantic’s flexible packaging process. Our specialized film technicians analyze your current flexible packaging equipment, materials, and overall process.


The audit drives our recommendations for optimized systems and materials. It provides a basis for measuring performance of new film or different adjustments to the existing equipment. Rather than providing a price quote up-front on a project, we begin with the audit and then determine the most accurate price quote based on our observations and recommendations.


In addition to the data collected during the audit, our customers also benefit from the decades of experience behind our sales, support, and technical teams. Our collective knowledge and resources give us insights into how flexible packaging can be best utilized in nearly every application. This allows us to cut costs, decrease downtime, and improve the overall packaging operations for our customers.
