Business Description: AR Metallizing is a group created in 2009, following the merger of two leaders in the area of vacuum metallization: Alupa and Rotoflex. The group is serving CPG, beverage, packaging, food, and tobacco industries with its highly specialized range of coated and vacuum metallized paper qualities. It also is rapidly developing in coating and metallizing of other, technical specialty materials.

ARMetallizing acquired in 2012 the activities of Vacumet Paper, the North American leader in metallized paper.

The merger of Alupa, Rotoflex and Vacumet into AR Metallizing, has shaped an undisputed leader in terms of size, technology, capabilities and global reach.  

In its three production sites in Genk (Belgium), Casalgrasso (Northern Italy) and Franklin, MA (USA), AR Metallizing has the capacity to produce over 50,000 tons of metallized paper, on top of its range of specialty products. ARM thrives on a group of over 300 highly committed and passionate people, combining the know-how, which has made metallized paper what it is today.

Reputed since the early nineties, Alupa, Rotoflex and Vacumet have each prospered to the quality reference for metallized paper, thanks to a continuous investment in people, technology, quality and environmental protection. By joining forces, and by conducting a structured integration process, the group offers a level of expertise unseen in the history of these products. As such, AR Metallizing aspires to further flourish and be a trustworthy partner for clients on five continents, who rely on the group for the most demanding service levels.

AR Metallizing has also demonstrated its leadership in innovation and anticipates the successes of an exciting pipeline of innovative developments, growing to a high-end packaging material provider.

Products / Services / Brands:
Metallized Labels: AR Metallizing supplies label printers throughout the world, who serve the most demanding brewers, spirit and water bottlers, and food companies. Our products are qualified and highly regarded at all leading end-customers, who boost sales of their brands through the high-end looks our products offer.

Lamination solutions:
ARM has developed an economical and ecological alternative for film/cardboard complexes. Leveraging higher lamination efficiency, printing technology versatility and better cardboard economics, the solution offers a 100% recyclable alternative to commonly used film laminates.

Besides our standard products, we have a track record of developing with our clients or end-users solutions for special applications.  Also, we offer holographic solutions for stunning graphic results.

Functional packaging solutions: As one of the largest metallizers in the world, ARM has developed a suite of solutions which offer unique functional characteristics, allowing substitution of packaging materials like film and foil, which come with a heavy environmental burden. To name few:

•    Barrier metallized paper. ARM proposes a solution achieving MVTR and OTR values previously non-existent on paper. Applications can be found in flexible packaging and food wrapping.
•    IR barrier. Through the thin metallic layer, IR radiation is effectively blocked, increasing shelf life of products and increasing thermal properties.
•    Sealable paper. For applications such as yoghurt lids, ponches, etc. ARM offers packaging material which combines barrier, and IR protection while being heat sealable.

Tobacco innerliner:
  AR Metallizing serves the major cigarette companies, with whom we have a spotless reputation for quality, service and delivery reliability. Our innerliner products, applying vacuum metallizing technology, are chosen thanks to the important environmental advantages they offers vis-à-vis traditional, laminate-based innerliner products.

Capabilities: Coating, Metallizing, Slitting, Embossing, Holographic finish.
