Starpak a.k.a. Levy & Smith, was founded in 1946 as a jobbing shop. The aims and objectives of the company even then, were to consistently produce a product of high quality, a trend ever present today. A decade later, when the first polyethylene bags were imported into SA, it was Levy & Smith Starpak, who through their innovative skills, developed machines to heat seal these bags. From 1967, Starpak expanded its range to include machines that provides the technologically advanced solutions we have today.
Since its inception, Starpak has designed, engineered and installed over 80,000 packaging systems in 25 countries and with over six decades of experience in the packaging business, we pledge our commitment to remain the leader in our field
