Cloud Rides the Building Wave in Water Soluble Packaging

Plastic News, February 4, 2015 – Plastic News Senior Staff Reporter Jim Johnson recently interviewed Mike Werner, vice president of sales and marketing for Cloud Packaging Equipment LLC discussing the growth Cloud Packaging Equipment has experienced in recent years.  Cloud produces Hydroforma, a continuous motion rotary-style form-fill-seal machine that is the fastest in the world.

Cloud produces what is known as a continuous motion rotary-style form-fill-seal machine, marketed under the Hydroforma brand, that the company claims to be the fastest in the world. Think of a drum continuously spinning to create all those dish and laundry detergent packets commonly found on today’s store shelves.

Cloud doesn’t make those packets; it makes the machines that make those packets. And they’ve been quite busy doing just that, Werner said.

“Outside of the P&G pouches, every other pouch you see out there, probably 95 percent of them are made on a Cloud,” Werner said. “Over the last three or four years, I can’t build machines fast enough.”

To help meet demand, Cloud has doubled its employee ranks to 60 and space to about 30,000 square feet at its Des Plaines facility. Sales, too, have just about doubled in recent years.
