Since its establishment in 1982, Integrated Packaging Group (IPG), a privately run, Australian owned company has grown to become the largest local manufacturing specialist of plastic stretch film and associated equipment in Australia.
In February 2010 IPG acquired Ausplaztik, now IR Composite. IR’s technology enables the group to recycle agricultural and other polyethylene based plastics into a patented mix of plastics and organic fibres for the making of advanced timber, concrete and steel substitute products.
In February 2013, IPG acquired the business and assets of the Amcor Flexibles Packaging (formerly Aperio) plants in Cheltenham, Chester Hill and Kirrawee which reinforces IPG’s growth strategy in industrial and agricultural packaging.
As a market leader, IPG now offers innovative products with cost-effective solutions featuring a large range of packaging and stretch film options. Our expanded product range includes Printed Collation Shrink, Printed Rewind, Printed Laminates, Open Top Sacks, Valve Sacks and PVC Food Film.
