    Revolutionary Packaging Tech Arrives In Australia

    Posted on 23 Jun 2017
    Source: Logistics & Materials Handling Victoria-based packaging manufacturer Abbe Corrugated Packaging recently launched the ‘Box on Demand’ automated packaging solution in Australia, powered by Italian carton/packaging machine manufacturer Panotec.

    Published in AIP eNewsletter March 2017 Issue    ‘Tis an Irish proverb that fits the O’Sullivan family, the owners of the multi-disciplined ABBE Corrugated Pty Ltd in Coolaroo Victoria.   Not one minute of time has been wasted since the family patriarch, the late “Jack” O’Sullivan, commenced manufacturing corrugated containers in 1954.   The original company was sold off during the heady days of consolidation in the industry during the 1980’s, but too much time had been spent in the business to simply go away.   In 1988, the family established Abbe Design Pty. Ltd. as a box converting business thus maintaining the family connection with the corrugated cardboard industry. It has since been rebranded ABBE Corrugated Pty Ltd   Not wasting time in the nearly twenty years since...

    Published in Business State Magazine August 2015 Issue Abbe Corrugated reveals some of the secrets to running a successful family owned and run business, and explains how it is formalising processes to ensure it stays that way for generations to come. ABBE CORRUGATED can trace its history back to the early 90s, although the O'Sullivan family has been a name in Victoria's packaging business for decades. The father of current Managing Director Anthony O'Sullivan started a small printing business in 1990. Since then, small factories have become bigger factories, from Campbellfield to Broadmeadows, ending up today at a 32,000-square metre site in Coolaroo.
