Packaging technology

Cardboard packaging

Artekno has invested heavily in its own fibre-packaging production operations in Kangasala, Finland. Our newest, state-of-the-art board machine was acquired in 2021. Increasing use of cardboard packaging enables us to provide more and more environmentally friendly solutions.

We work closely with board manufacturers and we will keep you informed of the latest developments in products and techniques. Among the latest solutions are customer-designed prints, tightly-sealed seams and suitability for oven heating and cooking. We can test all our solutions in practical processes.

We offer a comprehensive range of standard-sized packaging for the food sector, with quick and cost-effective solutions for every customer.

In addition to our own production, Artekno also represents the patented HALOPACK® cardboard casserole solution in Finland. This is a completely new kind of packaging that combines the best properties of plastic packaging and cardboard packaging.

Plastic packaging

For the production of plastic packing, Artekno has its own company, Artekno Eesti Oü, which was founded in 2009. We deliver to more than ten countries in Europe, and our Finnish logistics are supported by our own warehouse in Kangasala, near the city of Tampere.

Our plastic packaging is mainly made by thermoforming polypropylene, and recycling it is made as simple as possible for end users. We have an extremely wide range of standard products, and also provide many customer-specific solutions.

Artekno’s product catalogue (link) provides more detailed information on our plastic packaging. We can also help you find the right material and technology for your packaging.

Aluminium packaging

For many types of food packaging, aluminium is a good choice of material. The aluminium used in packaging is more than 60% recycled, and there is no limit to the number of times this material can be reused if properly recycled.

Although we do not produce aluminium packaging ourselves, as one of Finland’s purchasers of aluminium packaging we can offer an extensive and competitive range. Artekno Oy represents the largest aluminium-packaging manufacturers in Europe in Finland, and we have decades of experience in various types of packaging using aluminium.

Did you know that aluminium packaging can be stained or coated, and that many kinds of tightly-sealing covers are possible? We will help you find just the right material and technology for your packaging.
