Schwarzwaldmilch first to opt for SIG’s combiMaxx closure

New closure meets growing demand for convenience.

The first commercial launch of SIG’s combiMaxx convenient closure has taken in partnership with German dairy Schwarzwaldmilch.

Consumer demand for more convenience in packaging is constantly growing. SIG’s new wider closure combiMaxx is a solution aimed at taking convenience to a new level, while also ensuring smooth and easy implementation on existing SIG’s filling lines.

Schwarzwaldmilch now offers combiMaxx on all its dairy products in SIG’s combiblocSlimline 1,000ml carton packs. Due to its large opening with a 25mm inner diameter, the new closure offers optimal product flow, stream controllability, and easy handling. Other benefits include a tamper-proof ring and the reassurance of resealable and leak-proof storage.

Andreas Schneider, managing director of Schwarzwaldmilch, said: “Meeting the convenience needs of the consumer is important to us. Incorporating SIG’s new combiMaxx closure on our dairy packages offers outstanding performance for consumers, while also strengthening our brand position. Our close cooperation with SIG enables us to take consumer convenience to the next level without the need for a new closure applicator or any major investment.”

CombiMaxx can be combined with existing mid- and large-sized combibloc and combifit carton packs from SIG, starting with combiblocSlimline, combiblocMidi, and combifitMidi. Only a minor technical upgrade to the existing closure applicator and sorter unit is required via an upgrade kit and, once installed, operators can run combiMaxx and SIG’s closure solution combiSwift on the same applicator.

Frederic Faber, marketing manager D-A-CH at SIG, concluded: “Our combiMaxx closure is certainly a game changer for the food and beverage industry when it comes to consumer convenience. Our close cooperation with Schwarzwaldmilch has turned the challenge of meeting ongoing consumer needs into a reality.”
