BestSeller RKW ProVent® with New, Modular Service Portfolio

Frankenthal (Germany), July 28, 2017 - At POWTECH 2017, RKW presents its new range of services for the RKW ProVent® product family. "BestServices" support customers from initial consultation to process optimization, based on RKW's many years of experience with FFS (Form, Fill & Seal) solutions. The self-venting plastic packaging RKW ProVent® reliably protects powdery goods in the building materials, food and chemical industries.

RKW's BestSeller RKW ProVent® is a good example of industrial packaging that offers much more than reliable product protection. Its many features include cost-efficiency, sustainability and promotional effectiveness, making the stable plastic sack with an integrated self-venting system very popular among customers. In the past ten years, RKW has sold the product more than 400 million times, gaining comprehensive experience from launches and process optimization with customers. Based on these experiences, RKW is now offering a complete service portfolio. "Using our modular 'BestServices', we support our customers in fully transforming the potential of the innovative packaging solution RKW ProVent®", Thomas Steffen, Head of Research & Development at Echte and Project Manager for RKW ProVent®, explains.

At booth 1-533, visitors can obtain information about RKW's comprehensive service portfolio around RKW ProVent®. The portfolio is broken down into four modules ranging from the initial consultation to process optimization during operation: BestInfo, BestFit, BestStart, and BestRun.

The initial consultation "BestInfo" is free. It includes customer benefit analyses, a rough calculation and a customized proposal. The next step, "BestFit", ensures optimum design of the packaging materials. RKW is the sole supplier conducting filling material analyses in its own lab. Offering professional assistance, "BestStart" ensures a smooth and efficient process during installation. The RKW service team consults directly with the customer's project manager and checks all technical parameters in advance with the equipment manufacturer. After initial operation, customers can further optimize their filling processes with "BestRun". For instance, after-sales service can assist customer-specific design adaptations or special developments.

"As the developer and manufacturer of RKW ProVent®, we are familiar with the entire range of applications. This is why we can effectively help customers in choosing, implementing and advancing the solution that works best for them", Steffen goes on to describe the benefits of the new RKW services.

In addition to "BestServices", RKW showcases its comprehensive portfolio of flexible and high-quality packaging for the building-materials, chemical and food industries. RKW ProVent® from the FFS films product category remains the flagship product. The polymer-based alternative to traditional paper packaging offers stable packaging to producers and fillers of powdery goods, reliably protecting their product during storage, handling and transportation.

Due to a highly effective vapor barrier, RKW ProVent® is also suitable for outside storage of moisture-sensitive products such as cement, gypsum or mortar. Customers can also effectively employ RKW ProVent® as a sales and marketing tool thanks to its high printing quality. "According to our experience, consumers strongly prefer plastic packaging for powdery goods" Steffen reports. "This is one of the reasons why the adaptable packaging solution is used in a growing number of markets. With 'BestServices', we now offer customers ideal support."
