Berhalter Switzerland - Keeping it in the family: the secret to efficient, Swiss-made die-cutting machines

Berhalter Switzerland was founded in 1960 and is still a family-owned business led by its third generation. It is known worldwide for flexible, efficient and innovative die-cutting solutions. With 58 years of experience and continuous quality development, it has grown into a dynamic company in the packaging materials industry.

The group's high-performance die-cutting machines present the most cost-effective solution for powerful and precise die cutting from the roll for a whole range of printed and unprinted paper, film and foil material.

Where to find the company and a few of its leading clients

When holding a yogurt or deep-drawn pet food lid, one is most likely holding a Berhalter end product, produced on a highly efficient die-cutting press from the company.

This applies to flat-packaging lids made out of aluminium or polyester, such as those for Nestlé yogurt, as well as for packaging lids with relief impressions, like Philadelphia's cover for cheese spread. Deep-drawn aluminium lids - including those used for pet food like Sheba or Cesar - enhances the extensive range of product opportunities. Additionally, Berhalter's die-cutting solutions can be used to produce paper labels on beer bottles and labels for in-mould labelling applications, such as Starbucks coffee cups.

The mark of success

Die cutting is one piece in the complete supply chain of a final product. But it nonetheless significantly influences success rates. Which die-cutting solution a client chooses depends on the appearance of the product, sustainability, quality and efficiency.

Berhalter is a strong partner for customer-specific diecutting solutions, according to the motto: 'simply knowing how it works'.
