Based in the north of France.

Welcome to axipack

We are specialised in a variety of high-quality semi-finished products, mainly for the graphic arts industries, such as stationery, promotional communication, signage, labels and promotional packaging.

Our product range is designed to meet with the requirements of these industries (printability, thickness, innovative aesthetics and textures). We also have a growing range of technical products, for a diversity of industrial applications. We sell our products throughout Europe and beyond, with a high export rate to a growing customer base.

Axipack is a wholly owned subsidiary of epsotech, Europe’s leading supplier of engineered polymer sheets.

ABOUT US

Based in the north of France in Ruitz, in the Hauts-de-France region, AXIPACK is a leading supplier in the specialist field of graphic arts and other industrial applications.

Each year we supply over 600 customers worldwide with materials for an unlimited number of applications in a wide range of finishes, textures and colours.

Service and quality are at the heart of everything we do. Our dedicated sales and customer service team is highly experienced, and we cover a wide range of languages so we can talk to you directly about your requirements.

Unlike some inferior imports to the EU, our quality polypropylene formulations ensure the highest standard of material for the most demanding applications in promotion and print applications.

Polypropylene offers the following features over alternative polymers:

  1. Competitive pricing vs. other polymer substrates
  2. Lower weight (-40% vs. PVC and -30% vs. PET). More sheets for your money!
  3. Environmentally friendly and widely recycled – major advantages over cardboard and PVC
  4. The widest range of colours and embosses
  5. Easy to print and process

diverse applications

Our products

are manufactured from speciality grades of high-quality polyolefin materials – making them easily recyclable.

Adapting the formulation with different blends, additives, colours and embossings allows us to achieve the exact look, feel, flexibility and performance you need for your end product.

We can adapt

our material to be totally transparent or completely opaque; naturally translucent in practically any colour – solid colour, metallic, pearlescent – quite rigid or very flexible – we have a formulation and finish to match every requirement.

Another great advantage of our formulations is the simplicity and long life of die-cut and folded parts. When creased and folded, polypropylene is an ideal material for a living hinge without additional components – displaying extreme fatigue resistance, meaning that it could withstand hundreds of thousands of folding cycles.

We produce

all our sheet material to exacting standards of flatness and dimensional tolerances. We understand all our customers’ processes and ensure that we deliver the quality you expect. These possibilities are what make our products so versatile – from file binders to lampshades and supermarket signs!

innovation, development and diversification

Axipack has a long history of development and diversification, with a growing portfolio of non-graphic arts applications.

Thanks to our network of experts and specialists we are able to leverage a large R&D team to support product development. Our production lines are specially configured to produce very flat thin sheets with good dimensional tolerances, which lends them well to alternative engineering applications.

We have several projects in development to make more use of the trims and recyclate from other industries. This helps to further promote polypropylene as an easily recycled product and a more sustainable alternative to PVC.
