The Flexible division comprises Germany based Schur®Star Systems GmbH, Schur®Star Systems Inc, USA-domiciled, and Schur®Star Systems Australia Pty. Ltd.
The products are pre-made bags constructed for the patented Schur®Star Concept. These bags are delivered to the customer on a unique string, produced specifically to run on the Schur®Star Packaging Machines.
In 2020, the success of the Schur®Star Concept was emphasized by the introduction of the Schur®StarLight Packaging Machine, intended for smaller runs not suitable for the Schur®Star, which is characterized by a higher capacity.
Pre-made bags for both Schur®Star and Schur®StarLight machines are produced from a large variety of flexible materials, fossil or bio-based. The raw materials are sourced worldwide from recognized suppliers. This makes the Schur®Star companies independent from giving preference to materials produced by themselves, but enabling them to source, produce from, and supply exactly what their customers require.
All three companies run in-house prepress departments each with their own production of printing plates. Lamination also takes place in-house, and the comprehensive range of material solutions never remains static, but is constantly adapted to customer and market requirements.
All bags are produced on state-of the-art conversion machinery, engineered, built, and supplied by the machinery division. The product range comprises classic bag constructions as well as creative and innovative bag and pouch formats. The bags are delivered for practically any product application, any market, and any segment.
The Schur®Star companies are driven by continuous entrepreneurship, unlimited curiosity, and the overall commitment to serve each customer individually and in the best possible way. Thus the format range is constantly refined, new and innovative bag formats as well as attractive packaging features are always in the pipeline.
These capabilities enable the companies to solve any project and any packaging job and to continuously enter into new markets and segments. All made possible by an experienced and dedicated staff, and not least by the know-how gathered by Schur through 175 years of experience.
