From individual specialized articles to complete high-volume series – Fernholz can offer you modern packaging solutions and sheet made from thermoplastic polymers. We specialize in the production of plastic packaging using injection moulding and thermoforming techniques and sheet extrusion for the food and dairy industry. With in-mild labelling, adhesive labelling and direct printing we can offer our customers three different options for decorating their packaging. Other production areas include packaging for horticultural applications and plastic sheets. Employing around 220 people, Fernholz processes 2,000 tons of plastic granulate every month, corresponding to approx. 2.5 billion packaging items per year.

Containers

Modern packaging solutions from plastic

We produce containers from materials such as polypropylene (PP), polystyrene (PS) and polyethylene terephthalate (PET). Commonly accepted industrial diameters and standard sizes (150 g to 500 g) are available, as are special shapes at the customer’s request.

Trays

Shaping plastic

Our wide spectrum of products range from 125 g rectangular trays to multi-compartment trays and large containers for catering use. We use standard sizes as well as customer-specific special formats and colours.

When it comes to the choice of materials, we use PP (microwavable) and APET (high oxygen barrier, good transparency). Depending on the application, it is also possible to use composite sheet, such as sealable APET/PE variants.

All materials can be recycled, are food-safe and are subject to the relevant EU regulations for food packaging.

Sheet

Individual customer solutions are our specialty

Whether these involve PS, PP, PET, PLA, multi-layer sheet or decorated/printed PS sheet, we can work with you to develop exactly the sheet that you need for your systems and filling machines. The result: optimum running properties on your machine and therefore significantly enhanced efficiency in production.

Lids

The perfect fit for every shape

We can offer you a range of different lids for our containers.

These can be round, rectangular or oval: as well as lids in all the most important industrial formats and in all the most common materials, such as PS, PP and A-PET, we can also produce lid to suit your individual requirements. Special sizes and special contours: you specify the shape and colour. As well as labelling, preprint is also available as a decorative option.

Customer-specific decoration

High performance labelling, direct print and IML systems are available for decorating the containers and trays, enabling us to cater to specific customer needs.

Printing

As well as supplying adhesive labels for base, side and all-round labelling for a wide variety of label sizes, we use the innovative “no-label-print” process and are capable of printing containers directly in up to eight colours using the dry offset process.
