WATER IS LIFE: chapter 3


Our water well is ready! Another drinkable water source is now available in Ethiopia: you are finally able to bear the fruits of your support! In the beginning of November we inaugurated the water well built with the funds allocated by Universal Pack during Interpack 2017 in the village of Gereb, Tigray region, in Ethiopia. A gesture as simple as laying a piece of Water is Life puzzle at Universal Pack booth became a social action to improve life conditions of around a thousand people. And this is only the beginning!

Universal Pack Gereb


The village inhabitants, some representatives of Universal Pack and local institutions participated in the event, hosted in a joyful and friendly atmosphere celebrating the new drinkable water source for a couple of days. Now that fight for survival is less hard, adults will have the chance to work and children to go to school.


But that’s not all. This well is just the beginning; it’s a piece of a mosaic of initiatives aimed on improving life’s conditions of those who live in the poorest regions of the world. Many projects are at stake for the present and the future, because just as we bring packaging machinery in the most remote regions of the world we wish to contribute to the development of who lives in worse conditions than ours.


The collaboration between Universal Pack and Progetto Familia Onlus started a few years back and is constantly growing; the commitment in the same Asian and African territories together with the common will to go beyond business made the relationship between these two realities grow stronger, and perpectives for the future are very positive. We have many current projects, and many more are coming.

“Sogni d’oro” project: it consists in giving 300 accessorized beds to the 300 children of Mbara orphanage – Uganda ( 80% complete)

“Mangio anch’io” project: it consists in building a kitchen and a dining room for the 300 children of Mbara orphanage – Uganda   ( 50% complete)

“SOS da Arissa” project: food delivery for the  persecuted in Orissa (India) (Until March 2018)

Progetto Familia Onlus

Automatic vertical packaging machines for all needs: since 50 years we are bringing innovation to the world of single-dose packaging, producing high-performance automatic vertical bagging machines which we can adjust to the costumer’s specific needs. Besides single-serve packaging machines, our primary and secondary products line can satisfy the most peculiar packaging needs, producing 4 side heat-sealed bags, shaped sachets, stick-packs and hollow-punch cases. We are always in absolute control of the situation, as design, production and assembly of each packaging machine take place in our company.

Our packaging machines are designed and manufactured entirely by us, therefore we are able to produce customised machines, packaging lines and solutions for every commodity sector. In addition, it is possible to edit operational parameters via touch-screen display, with no need for mechanical intervention. Overall, all the operating parameters are electronically managed and thus they can be edited without interrupting the production phase. Furthermore, all our automatic vertical packaging machines were designed and tested to work 24/7.

Every year we invest in research and development in the field of single-dose packaging, so that our automatic vertical packaging machines can become even more trustworthy and efficient. This has allowed us to manufacture productive machines which remain excellent even after 30 years of use. Their reliability is guaranteed by our company’s factory, which produces over the 80% of the machines’ components, and strict quality control. In order to adapt the production of automatic vertical packaging machines to the market needs, we implement power supply groups to allow the existing packaging system to elaborate complementary products.
