Visitors to the site will be introduced to Michelman’s new Packaging Incubator, which is the focal point of the Centre. Strategically designed to facilitate fast and efficient development of sustainable packaging solutions, the incubator was built around a state-of-the-art, dual-station pilot coater laminator that allows manufacturers to test new product concepts without having to stop their own production lines for R&D purposes.
