Plascon Group Launches New Website
Traverse City, MI, March 10, 2010 --( The Plascon Group has launched a new website featuring the company’s innovative turn key work programs and flexible packaging solutions for the food, institutional, pharmaceutical and bulk packaging industries. Visitors will find product information, photos and video from the six companies within the Plascon Group: Plascon Inc, Plascon Films, Plascon Packaging, Plasport, Plastech Marketing Communications and Gunter North America.

“The new site gives visitors more complete information about the products and services available for their specific industry from the different companies within the Plascon Group,” said Jennifer Borkovich, Marketing Director. “For instance, a food industry customer might be interested in cook chill bags from Plascon Packaging, form fit bulk liners from Plasport and biodegradable can liners from Plascon Films.” Contact forms on the site are customized for each business so that potential customers can receive samples and an accurate quote as quickly as possible.

“We’ve also added information about Plasport’s clean room manufacturing capabilities that are used to produce custom single-use bioreactor bags for the pharmaceutical industry,” said Borkovich. “Disposable bioprocessing equipment is helping pharmaceutical companies save time and lower costs as they develop and manufacture new drugs and vaccines. We’re proud to be part of those efforts.”
