Automotive Bag Packaging Applications

As provider to the world’s largest automotive manufacturers, we’re well versed in what it takes to satisfy customers in the automotive industry. From small parts packaging to large, oddly shaped products, we have a variety of bagging options from which to choose. 

Automotive industry parts packaging needs can change quickly. Consumer demand for aftermarket parts coupled with the quality and longevity of cars being manufactured today requires versatile packaging solutions that can keep up with demand. 

Our bag packaging systems can significantly reduce bad batch/recall losses by using small bags to package small quantities instead of large boxes. Bags also offer optimum protection and identification, so if there is an automotive part batch recall, only a small portion of product is compromised. 

A few of the automotive products our customers are packaging today include:

  • Rivets and clips
  • Wire ties and cable connectors
  • Windshield wipers
  • Filters
  • Individual parts - small and large
  • Parts kits
