Paul and Ludo Pissens
In 1919 Anton Pissens began a paper factory in Leuven. In 1927 the family Meurrens joined him. Pacapime saw the ‘light’ as the name referred to both the paper and the corrugated business as well as the management Pissens-Meurrens.
During the war the infrastructure and machinery in Leuven were destroyed. After the war the company moved to Halle, its current location.
In 1976 a great fire destroyed half of the machinery and infrastructure of Pacapime. It allowed for a complete modernisation of the production unit that resulted in an explosive growth in the later part of the 70’s.
In the early eighties the third generation took over the management of Pacapime: Tony, Ludo and Paul Pissens. Continuous investment in ultra modern means of production allowed Pacapime to become an important player on the Benelux market.
In 2003 Pacapime entered in an important equity participation in the former Lammers & Van Cleeff, currently known as L.C. Packaging. This is the company that besides selling all kind of packaging for the print an vegetable market handles our foreign and domestic sales .
Pacapime feels strongly commit to new trends in the corrugated market and will therefor continue the process of renewing and investment.
And the beginning of 2005, we started with high-quality Masterflex printing.
In January 2007, we invested in a new Corrugator that is the largest and most expensive machinery in the corrugated manufacturing process. The same year, we also implemented a new Revicart-machine to produce TwinBox® concept.
