USA –  Adhesives manufacturing company, H.B. Fuller has signed a partnership deal with tape application equipment manufacturer, Enimac to strengthen e-Commerce packaging in North America.

The agreement brings together specialists from both companies, who effectively combine their market and application expertise with advanced knowledge on pressure-sensitive adhesive tapes to support the growing e-commerce packaging industry.

H.B. Fuller, an Amazon Packaging Support and Supplier (APASS) certified supplier, is a recognized leader in the e-commerce packaging industry.

It provides Open Sesame opening tear tapes and Close-Sesame closing tapes that are efficiently applied with Enimac equipment.

The firm’s Sesame sustainable fiber-based e-commerce opening tear consists of more than 80% bio-based content and uses a substrate that is sustainably sourced and certified by the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification.

“As the e-commerce packaging market begins its next wave of exponential growth, the agreement with Enimac strengthens our presence in the market,” said Tania Montesi, H.B. Fuller’s global E-commerce Packaging Business Development Manager.

“It leverages our performing tape and their application technology expertise to provide quality solutions and technical support to a wide range of packaging makers.”

Based in Italy, Enimac was founded in 2013 by Biemme Adesivi, who has 50 years of expertise in tape application and conversion.

The firm partners with tape converters around the world to provide substrate bonding solutions, including tape and automation, intending to lower costs and boost production.

The company creates, produces, and sells standalone and tabletop tape application devices for paper and cardboard, as well as integrated tape applicators for use in machinery and production lines and fully customized tape application stations, modules, and systems.

Enimac Vice President, Martin Buerger said: “We look forward to partnering with H.B. Fuller.

“By combining our application equipment with their portfolio of opening and closing tapes, we become a one-stop shop for packaging makers, which will improve our customers’ experience.”

In addition to the company’s Close-Sesame closing tapes, H.B. Fuller recently launched Open Sesame fiber-based tear tape designed to promote sustainable e-commerce packaging.

This first-of-its-kind, global, patent-pending innovation is validated on Enimac equipment and meets the plastic-free packaging goals of Consumer-Packaged Goods (CPG) brands and e-tailers.
