Contract packing & co-packing
As a company, you have built up a good reputation on the market and numerous satisfied customers. You can expand this potential even further by outsourcing work steps that are not necessarily part of your core competencies and thus cause avoidable costs. Thus, outsourcing packaging work to a competent and reliable service provider for contract packaging and CoPacking such as Lufapak equalizes and optimizes the internal workflow. After all, packaging, storing, assembling, finishing and shipping goods of products are not only labor-intensive services, they also require additional machinery to be purchased and maintained.
As a contract packer, Lufapak not only has this specialized technology available on call, we also offer the qualified and specialized professionals to cover the full service spectrum around contract packaging and co-packing at the highest level. This specialization enables an attractive price with maximum quality.
Contract packing pays off for customers immediately: Through re-packing, they save avoidable fixed costs for machines and reduce expenses for their own personnel. As a result, there is no need to maintain additional expensive space for packaging work. In processing, risks are shifted to the service provider, and it is also possible to react flexibly to order peaks.
Our contract packaging work is not regionally limited. You send us the goods to Neuwied, we pack and return Germany / Worldwide. The delivery times within Germany are mostly the same, no matter if 50km or 500km. Lufapak will gladly take care of the complete transport at favorable conditions.
Without packaging, your product cannot reach the customer. In this work step at the end of the production chain, the goods output is sorted, structured and assembled for the end buyer, exactly as required by the customer and client. Depending on the product, this process involves a wide variety of measures, ranging from the simple filling and repackaging of shelf-stable goods to the assembly and production of complex components. Other frequently booked packaging modules include quality control, corrections and other rework, cleaning and labeling, as well as the application of necessary markings. In all these processes Lufapak stands for maximum accuracy and efficiency.
These include pick & pack order picking, among others.
In addition to packaging services, Lufapak also offers the necessary expertise and creativity for successful packaging, according to the specific requirements for your product. Either Lufapak already has the right packaging with closure and fastening material for your task or we find and develop it. The general conditions such as the logistics chain are taken into account as well as the specific requirements of the product. This ensures that the individual packaging solution offers the product the best possible protection, while at the same time being optimally cost-efficient. A close exchange with the customer is a matter of course, as is the sustainability of the product and compliance with all legal requirements and specifications. The end result is always a packaging solution that is successful in every respect and offers the best possible cost-benefit ratio.
External warehouse management provides clients with freedom, both in terms of space and liquidity. Lufapak has sufficient capacity to store your unpacked goods and products economically and properly. By storing directly at the service provider, you also speed up the further processing planned there and avoid taking up capacity needed in-house. The “time” factor also speaks in favor of warehousing at Lufapak: sophisticated warehouse management software, specialized staff and modern storage areas ensure that incoming orders are processed, packaged and shipped to the customer as quickly as possible. Thanks to this reliable and precise order processing, money also arrives faster to clients.

Blister packs and all-plastic packaging, for example, enable optimum product presentation combined with efficient theft protection. Combinations of blister and cardboard are also possible, optionally with Euro perforation and viewing window. The blister card can be printed on both sides. In any case, the result is high-quality and visually appealing packaging for numerous products and applications.
Bagging involves packing products in a tubular bag film, which is then cut to size and sealed. Bag packaging is not only inexpensive and secure, it is also particularly suitable for compact products that need to be presented in the best possible way. Because in the pouch, customers can examine these products extensively from all sides without having to unpack them first.
For all orders for packaging, sample sets are formed exclusively by trained foremen, which serve as a reference copy.
We work with parts lists throughout, on which the components and packaging materials, as well as important notes are listed. Thus, all orders are controlled and processed consistently.
For new projects, the final product is discussed with the customer and a project team implements the requirements.
Shrink film is often used when it is necessary to assemble and bundle set packaging or to additionally secure cardboard packaging. It can be processed by machine and ensures an airtight seal of the goods, thus best protection against moisture and dust.
Sleeving is the optimal and cost-effective solution when two or more products are sold together and are not yet to be opened at the point of sale. Particularly proven for products such as shampoos or cosmetics, which are connected with a transparent film.
