With more than 80 years of experience in corrugated cardboard, supplying a quality product and maintaining a flexible attitude toward the clients, PACAPIME in Belgium is part of the top of the market leader. We hope that in Hungary it will become the same.

Paul and Ludo Pissens
In 1919 Anton Pissens began a paper factory in Leuven. In 1927 the family Meurrens joined him. PACAPIME saw the ‘light’ as the name referred to both the paper and the corrugated business as well as the management Pissens-Meurrens.During the war the infrastructure and machinery in Leuven were destroyed. After the war the company moved to Halle, its current location. In 1976 a great fire destroyed half of the machinery and infrastructure of PACAPIME. It allowed for a complete modernisation of the production unit that resulted in an explosive growth in the later part of the 70’s.
In the early eighties the third generation took over the management of PACAPIME: Tony, Ludo and Paul Pissens. Continuous investment in ultra modern means of production allowed PACAPIME to become an important player on the Benelux market.
In 2003 PACAPIME entered in an important equity participation in the former Lammers & Van Cleeff, currently known as L.C. Packaging. This is the company that besides selling all kind of packaging for the print an vegetable market handles our foreign and domestic sales .
PACAPIME feels strongly commit to new trends in the corrugated market and will therefor continue the process of renewing and investment.
And the beginning of 2005, we started with high-quality Masterflex printing.
In January 2007, we invested in a new Corrugator that is the largest and most expensive machinery in the corrugated manufacturing process. The same year, we also implemented a new Revicart-machine to produce TwinBox® concept.
In the beginning of 2009, PACAPIME started a subsidiary in Hungary to focus on the East-European market besides serving the holland, belgian and german markets, especially the cardboard consumption of the food industry.
The primary goal of PACAPIME is to be successful in Hungary, and a long-term goal is to expand to the Romanian and Serbian markets through the close triple boarder.
The hungarian production started in 2009 with rotation diecut and inline machines. To satisfy the wider customer base demands new investments were started. In December of 2010 the company started to use a flat bed diecut machine. In 2011 PACAPIME increased the production area up to 23.000 m2. In the spirit of the latest technologies to transfer the raw material, semi-finished and finished product amoung the machines a totally automatic conveyor system was installed, which replaced the manual handling of the materials inside the factory.
The most important decision was to become from a card board transformer to a totally integrated card board factory. So in April of 2012 PACAPIME expended its machinery park with the latest Corrugator of the area, ink kichten and an environment friendly steam boiler. The Corrugator is able to produce with 2,8 m wide paper, and able to make 4 kinds of paper quality (E, B, C és D) and its combinations (e.g. EB, EE, DC, DB, DE). Bearing in mind the continuous improvement PACAPIME is planning to purchase more printing machines in order to be able to print with 5+1 colours.
In February of 2014 the building of a 9.000 m2 size warehouse and a logistic center begun, which has been set in operation in January of 2015.
The most important goals of PACAPIME are to guarantee high quality products and a unique producing flexibility. Storage is ensured to key partners, which allows to deliver within 1-2 days.
The delivery flexibility is provided by maintaining an own track park of PACAPIME, which allows to fulfill the unexpected demands of custumers.
Pacapime makes a variety of corrugated cardboard boxes. These include American Glue lap boxes in an extensive variety of sizes; die cut boxes/trays to individual customer requirements. The company also produces the unique TwinBox® packaging concept, which is an alternatieve to shelf ready packaging.
