APPLETON, Wis., Sept. 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Flair Flexible is celebrating 30 years of manufacturing flexible packaging solutions for businesses in the food and non-food industries. Founded in 1992, Flair began with a single office in Calgary, Alberta, focusing on importing solutions from global markets to meet emerging North American demands. While maintaining private, Canadian roots with its headquarters in Calgary, it has since expanded to encompass a global value chain that spans Canada, the United States, Mexico and Korea. Today, with six locations, over 250 employees and fully integrated resources, Flair’s focus has expanded beyond import to manufacture its own packaging solutions.
“I have always believed that if the foundation is strong, success will follow. For 30 years, Flair has relied on the trust of its customers,” says Young So, President and Founder of Flair. “This milestone was made possible by the continued trust of our customers, many of whom have partnered with us from our humble beginnings to this significant moment in Flair’s history today.”
Leveraging vertical integration and three decades of industry experience, Flair maintains a balanced portfolio of market-driven solutions that are optimized for a wide range of product and process requirements, and innovations focused on the customer that are tailored to the customer’s specifications. From custom printing with full graphics support to unique film extrusions and laminated tapes, Flair’s expertise includes roll films for VFFS and HFFS applications, a variety of pre-made formats, specialist solutions for process difficult like retort and HPP, and more.
Flair’s resources today include its Innovation Center which integrates extrusion, manufacturing, material analysis and end-user testing for a complete view of packaging performance. Driving Flair’s unprecedented developments, its innovation center has increased the number of Flair-branded solutions from two to eight in just 10 years. Beginning with FlairPak vacuum pouches in 2011, Flair’s brands have grown to include its ENVi® program of recyclable drop-in-store solutions, LiDynamics® lidding films, PLATINUM+™ thermoforming films and tactile packaging. Real Touch™ for textured designs.
Flair’s extensive solutions are backed by its Total Quality Management System, which has built the manufacturer’s reputation for quality and service with unparalleled consistency. Combination of the brand’s proprietary color management program for quantitative color analysis; technical quality management system for quality of materials and workmanship; and an FSSC22000 certified food safety management system, Flair’s quality control ecosystem ensures consistent and food safe solutions.
“There have been challenges along the way, including those that have impacted most businesses around the world over the past three years. It’s our people’s commitment to adapt, to protect each other and support customers to the maximum of their abilities which has allowed Flair to remain resilient over the years,” explains So. “As we look to our next 20 years, Flair remains firmly committed to creating value beyond the package, in line with the unique goals and challenges of each client we serve.”
