    • “When a pallet of pet food bags collapses during our automated palletization process, our production lines shutdown for up to 2 1/2 hours which is a significant downtime issue. Due to the high gloss bag surface and low COF, this is an ongoing issue for us.”
    • “The new Flexis® Air Valves provide us with more consistent air expulsion which delivers a more stable pallet stack every time preventing these production stoppages.”
    • “Mite infestation is a real issue in the warmer months in ANZ and in particular throughout Asia where the climate is more humid year round. The Air Valve eliminates the risk of mite infestation providing our customers with the this added product quality assurance.”- Major Pet Food Company
