Starlinger & Co. GmbH

Sector: FIBC Production Equipment


Starlinger leads the world market in production machinery for sacks, packaging fabrics, and technical textiles woven from plastic tapes. Sacks produced on Starlinger machines are in use worldwide for safe and low-cost packaging of various dry bulk goods, e.g. cement, chemicals, seeds, grain, flour, sugar, citrus fruits, fertilizer, animal feed, and similar products. The company has been in this business for over 45 years and also looks back at more than 25 years’ experience in plastics recycling technology.

A renowned supplier of high-quality machines for woven plastic packaging production, Starlinger manufactures tape extrusion lines, tape winders and circular looms for FIBC production. A milestone has been achieved with the development of the production technology for PET tape fabric for FIBCs. PET tape fabric stands out for its high stiffness and excellent creep and abrasion resistance. It offers the perfect properties for high-performance FIBCs that can be used for hot-fill and food-grade packaging and to store content with little inter-particle friction. PET FIBCs can be stacked for long periods of time and be used instead of expensive IBCs such as cardboard octabins or drums. As an eco-friendly option, PET FIBCs can be produced from recycled PET, e.g. from bottles, which helps to reduce raw material consumption and CO2 emissions.

Starlinger provides worldwide sales and service support as well as technical consulting, helping packaging producers to achieve optimum results in their production. With the support of the branch offices in Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Russia, South Africa, USA and Uzbekistan as well as agents in many countries Starlinger provides the customer-oriented service the company is known for. Satisfied customers in over 130 countries testify the outstanding quality of Starlinger machinery.
