In early March, an agreement was reached between Seal Productos SL, a Spanish manufacturer of sealing belts for tissue paper packaging machines, and The Kinetic Co., an American industrial knives producer. The agreement grants The Kinetic Co. exclusive distribution rights of Seal Productos SL products for the United States, Canada and Mexico.
The partnership was a win-win for both companies because The Kinetic Co. has extensive market penetration in the tissue towel industry in the three countries and the Heat-Sealing Belts manufactured by Seal Productos SL is a natural product extension for the products that Kinetic currently sells to the Tissue Industry.
Seal Productos SL has proven their product in the market and needed a solid distribution partner to meet its growth goals around the globe.
“Seal Produtos is very proud that an industry leader such as Kinetic recognized in us the ideal partner to offer new technology for Tissue manufacturers. Through this exclusive distribution agreement for oversea markets, Seal has the opportunity to strengthen its position in the Americas and we think that all of Kinetic’s customers will have an advantage by having product in stock nearby and local technical support,” says Seal Productos SL Managing Director, Luca Caramori, about the partnership with The Kinetic Co.
“Along with our new belts for paper packaging, purchasing sealing belts from ‘Seal-Kinetic’ means looking forward to eco-friendly products, reducing the quantity of plastics used on a big scale and improving performance. In fact, our products offer important savings of polyfilm purchased and the number of times having to replace the heat-sealing belts on a packaging machine. We would like to invite all the North American customers to discover all the advantages of our belts,” completes Caramori.
The Kinetic Co. has been in business for over 70 years and is known for their quality product lines and taking care of customer needs. In their search for new opportunities, they came across Seal Productos that, with their proprietary manufacturing processes and the need to get their product into the United States, presented their Heat Seal Belts to Kinetic.
“Of course our sales team at Kinetic had these belts tested in the field to verify all claims of longer production run-time at the mills, consistent quality, fair price, shared expertise and fast delivery. Seal Productos claims were verified, and our sales team found all claims to be considerably better than what Seal Productos stated,” stated Jeff Lovelien, Paper Market Manager for The Kinetic Co.
“With that said, Kinetic has now partnered with Seal Productos as the sole distributor in North America. Kinetics’ sales team is trained, and Heat Seal Belts are in inventory ready for our customers to experience another quality product offered by Kinetic to help production run efficiently!” he concludes.
