Under new direction and after
a lot of changes in the past year,
OMV Technologies Inc. is at K 2022
to remind customers that it is tackling
things in a new way.
" We want to let people know that
innovation is a big focus for us, servicing
our customers is a huge focus
for us, as well as sustainability, "
President Brooke Maltun said.
Royal Palm Beach, Fla.-based
MalStra LLC acquired the Verona,
Italy-based
thermoforming
and
extrusion machinery company in
November 2021. The new owners
are packaging industry veterans
Maltun and Mark Strachan. Since
then, OMV's headquarters moved
to Florida, and manufacturing recently
moved into a new facility
in Verona.
OMV produces turnkey systems
for thermoforming and extrusion,
and at K 2022 offi cials discussed
how they are helping customers
incorporate post-consumer materials
into their products.
In order to be as sustainable as
possible, OMV is also working on
helping minimize part weight and
scrap. " We design parts for sustainability.
What that means is most
people want to use as little plastic

as possible in a product to be functional, "
said CEO Strachan.
OMV has been working with multinational
brand owners to help develop
monomaterial packaging that
can replace multilayer structures.
Known for cup production, OMV
machines make drinking cups, containers,
small and large cups and
almost anything that has to do with
food production.
" We have some of the fastest
machines in the market, " said Matthew
Banach, vice president of
sales and marketing. " We got a little
bit quiet fi ve years ago due to the
previous ownership of OMV. And
what's been very exciting for us is
this is the fi rst time in 10 years that
OMV has been on its own. "
MalStra bought the company
from Switzerland-based Wifag-Polytype
Holding AG.
OMV has about 30 employees in
Italy and four in the United States.
Training has become a major focus,
both internally and with customers.
" We're going to start ramping
up with training classes and seminars, "
Strachan said.
