Our services - Your advantage

With WENTUS you benefit from a partner who offers flexible packaging solutions of first-class quality as well as the best service. This is what you can expect from us:


Do you want to keep the environmental impact of your products as sustainable as possible? We support you. As resource economy is top priority in development and production of our flexible packaging: we reduce the use of materials and energy to a minimum, ensure the best recyclability and optimise it, look for alternative solutions, design processes to conserve resources - and thus also ensure your sustainability success.


You want the best packaging solution? Then trust our efficient R&D and application technology. We develop solutions for meeting your individual requirements. Alternatively, we quickly modify existing formulations to meet your specific requirements. With product tests under real conditions, which are carried out on production lines instead of laboratories and take place in close interaction between product development and application technology, we ensure reliable processes - so we realize even demanding packaging challenges with high process reliability.


Do you like it fast and customer-friendly? We fulfil that with short communication lines , flat hierarchies, quick response times and central contact persons for all concerns. Our experienced project teams with a high level of expertise offer you best in class support at every stage of the project and ensure efficient implementation.


Do you prefer a strong partner for the entire programme? We respond with extreme vertical integration and offer a whole range of services from a single source - from flat or blown film extrusion over printing and laminating to effect varnishing.

We manufacture your product in thoroughly coordinated operations and cover the entire production chain. 

Using our product, you can rely on robust processes and benefit from our continuous improvement methodology. – this way we continue to improve for you every day.

Environmental protection & sustainability

Long before the term sustainability was coined, Wentus established itself as an environmentally conscious company. 

As one of the first producers, we developed compostable films and used them for e.g. waste bags. Today we develop films that ensure a particularly long shelf life for food products and thus reduce food waste.
