Flow wrapping is a packaging process which makes a bag from a single roll of clear or printed film. Products travel horizontally in a continuous motion through the flow wrapper to form a bag, fill it with product, and seal it. The bottom and ends of the film are heat sealed to form a flexible, tightly fitted package around the product. Flow wrap packaging is used for a variety of products from food items (cookies, candy bars, vegetables) to non-food industrial and household products (stationery, wet wipes, medical devices, industrial parts).
Over 75% of U.S. companies use some form of financing when acquiring equipment. This allows them to achieve their ROI through labor/material savings as they pay for equipment with affordable monthly payments.
As the only lender in the country to focus exclusively on packaging equipment, we have decades of experience financing flow wrappers. We also have longstanding relationships with the distributors that flow wrappers are typically sold through, and a deep understanding of the unique nature of the packaging industry.

Your Financing Solution for Packaging Equipment
You can find our one-page credit application here.
Once you're approved, we'll send you the lease documents for signature.
We'll order the equipment from the supplier after we receive the signed lease documents.
Capital leases are fully eligible for both Section 179 benefits and bonus depreciation, since the IRS considers them to be purchases rather than true tax leases. The leasing criteria used by the IRS are different from the ones used by accountants, so a project can be a lease for accounting purposes but a purchase for tax purposes. Learn more at our tax benefits page.
In the packaging equipment industry, deposits are commonly required by equipment suppliers. However, most banks and generalist leasing companies are not comfortable with paying funds before the equipment is delivered.
What sets American Packaging Capital apart is that we can accommodate the equipment supplier’s deposit terms. Since we are exclusively focused on the packaging equipment industry, we are experienced in handling supplier deposits.
Capital budget constraints are the number one challenge our customers face when acquiring packaging equipment. Leasing overcomes these constraints by spreading the cost over time with affordable monthly payments. This preserves capital budget dollars for other projects, which maximizes ROI. The value of packaging equipment is in its utility, not its ownership.
All lenders have their own unique footprint. Most leasing companies are generalists, which means they actively seek financing opportunities in many different market sectors. As a lender, the importance of understanding the nuances within any given industry cannot be taken lightly. Credit decisions, pricing, lease term limits and long-term asset valuations are critical components in determining which lease structure is right for you. Our 27 years of experience exclusively dedicated to the packaging industry allow us to present products and ideas that maximize your ROI.
