Biofach 2018 once again lived up to its reputation as the world's leading trade fair for organic food. We are delighted that we were able to welcome so many visitors from all over the world at our booth. Alongside visitors from several EU countries, we also had guests from India, Sri Lanka and Indonesia. But it was not only potential new customers who were interested in Pano's sustainable packaging solutions. Together with Dr. Robert Habeck, we were also able to greet the Schleswig-Holstein Minister for Energy Transition, Agriculture, Environment, Nature and Digitisation, who took part in a panel discussion at Biofach on the "Strategy for the Future of Biological Agriculture".

Alle Jahre wieder – Pano auf der BIOFACH 2018

Year after year… we continue our tradition after Christmas, and we will be attending the BIOFACH trade fair in Nuremberg on February 14-17, 2018. At our stand 9-335 in Hall 9, you will have the opportunity to learn more about our BLUESEAL® lug caps, and to make the personal acquaintance of some of your contact partners.

We would like to thank our customers for the productive collaboration in the past year!


Move into new administration building

From November 1st, 2017, it will be the turn of our administration employees to say goodbye to their traditional workplace in Gasstrasse, Itzehoe. At Fraunhofer Strasse 8, likewise in Itzehoe, a state-of-the-art administration building directly adjoining the factory there awaits the employees.

The production site in Fraunhofer Strasse accommodates, amongst other facilities, a modern additional paint finishing line and four of our Blueseal® production lines. The entire plant is designed to be operated in a resource-saving manner, such as through the generation of oil-free compressed air and with a heating system powered by recovered process heat. 

Our two works in Itzehoe in Fraunhofer Strasse and Gasstrasse have been successfully certified in accordance with the FSSC 22000 standard. Production operations will not be affected by the relocation of the administration department. 

Our telephone numbers will stay the same as well.

We are looking forward to the new premises, which will offer more space for our expanding company.


Updated data and information sheets for our customers

We are pleased to announce that we have been able to augment our product portfolio with deep closures with the BLUESEAL® compound (powered by Provalin®). This expansion goes hand-in-hand with a concentrated focus on the manufacture of PVC-free closures. Consequently, we have withdrawn several closure sizes with PVC compounds from our assortment.

In timing with the start of production of the deep BLUESEAL® closure with a diameter of 82 mm, we have brought our customer data and information sheets up to date and optimised them. You can find the new documents in German or English in the download area.

What is new? The main revisions:

In the data sheets for the PVC-free Pano BLUESEAL® and the lug cap with PVC compound, alongside the regular closures you will now also find the deep lug caps and their technical specifications. The dimension sheets for regular and deep lug caps have been updated accordingly. Our deep closure types are available in the sizes 58, 66 and 82 mm, optionally with or without a button function, and with or without a BPA-NI interior coating.

We had already updated our print specifications and the guideline for processing our BLUESEAL® closures in March. If you don't already have the latest versions: The guideline contains useful information for your production line employees, and so it is really advisable to download them. The print specifications are a must for correctly realising your closure decors. Here you will find general information and dimensions for designing and preparing the print templates.

Our practical questionnaires on the use of cam screw caps and aluminium closures now include additional information, and should cover all closure variants and application scenarios. As always, you can download the questionnaires as PDF forms, which you can simply fill in, save and print using a PDF reader.

Many other documents have also been updated, in some cases only with minor amendments, however. As usual, all the data and information sheets can be found in the download area.

If you have any questions or suggestions: Your contact partner at Pano will be glad to assist you.
