Founded in 1977 by a group of Thai investors as Strongpack,
the company quickly became the manufacturer of choice
for customers all over the region.
Specialising in the design and manufacture of flexible
packaging, Alcan Packaging Strongpack is famous for finding
the perfect solution for every packaging need. The company
creates its unique designs through
a blend of the latest specialist technologies, highly
trained workers and talented artists. Products are carefully
analysed to ensure the best possible package design.
Growth and development
In 1994, Strongpack took a step forward when it teamed
up with VAW Flexible Packaging.
As one of the world leaders in the industry, VAW Flexible
Packaging was able to blend Strongpack’s expertise with
the latest technology and the support of 14 flexible packaging
plants in eight countries. This partnership allowed Strongpack
to become the first choice of companies in the region
and enabled it to become a pioneer in packaging technologies.
Over the years, Strongpack has strengthened its market
position considerably. In 1996, the company purchased
a new plant to increase its capacity. It also built an
advanced cleanroom and initiated ISO 9001.
For a company like Strongpack, always focused on the
future, new horizons always beckon and the company has
made great plans to improve its services and reach out
to additional customers. To achieve this, Strongpack joined
forces, in 2003, with one of the global leaders in packaging:
the renowned Swiss company, Alcan.
To take advantage of its new partner’s reputation, Strongpack
changed its name to Alcan Packaging Strongpack. The newly
named company continues to offer its full range of quality
services. Moreover, access to state-of-the-art technologies
and world markets means that it will continue to improve

talented teams of artists and designers ensure that packaging
is both eye-catching and unique.
The merging of Strongpack and Alcan Packaging into Alcan
Packaging Strongpack has enhanced both companies’ abilities
to provide innovative packaging solutions to customers.
This enhancement is achieved through a combination of
Alcan’s global capabilities and larger scale resources
with the more localised expertise and services of Strongpack.
Because of the merger, the manufacture of many additional
products will be possible. The transfer of technology
and knowledge, as well as an increased and more stable
flow of supplies will ensure that the company continues
