About Pakaflex

A long tradition

Harbour BridgeEstablished since 1989 Pakaflex is a totally independent, privately owned manufacturing company based in Melbourne, Australia. It is wholly Australian owned by the Hamer family, a family that has been in the forefront of Australian manufacturing for more than 150years when Andrew’s great, great grandfather, Thomas McPherson, established McPherson’s limited which went on to be in the top 100 companies in Australia – even making the 8 million rivets required for the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Pakaflex maintains that passion and long-term commitment to manufacturing for the Australian & New Zealand markets. Manufacturing in Australia allows for efficient service and rapid turn-around meaning Pakaflex provides the product you need, when you need it. This quality and reliability have earned Pakaflex a client base that includes some of the most respected companies in Australia and New Zealand! Pakaflex has innovated and increased sales and production by more than 20% for each of the last five years and in doing so has invested in brand new high-productivity extrusion and printing capability to match the requirements of the markets we make for high quality, but cost effective products. Also, through its strategic partnerships, Pakaflex has the capability to offer and develop exciting new concepts and be at the forefront of flexible packaging innovation both regionally – in Australia and New Zealand – and increasingly throughout the world.
