1922 Fournisseur emballage professionnel Ripack

RIPPES production facilities, innovation at the heart of development

Since its creation in 1922, RIPPES production facilities have specialised in designing sealing equipment and have based their success on innovation. A number of patents were filed enabling safer products that use less gas to come onto the market.
Around 1975, RIPPES came up with and developed the idea of covering a palletised load in a cover made from heat shrinkable plastic in order to stabilise the load and protect it from theft and bad weather.
Its mastery of the flame, resulting from this extensive know-how, later led to the creation of the company SEFMAT and its brand, RIPACK.

Shrink-wrap begins to be manufactured

SEFMAT was one of the first manufacturers to develop a gas-fed “gun” intended for shrinking heat shrink covers thanks to the heat generated by the hot air produced. From the outset, the SEFMAT has concentrated on innovation in the safety of its equipment and its reliability.
The “cold nozzle” patent which removes any risk of contact burns has enabled RIPACK to become the leading brand on the market worldwide.

Ripack, the leading
brand worldwide

Very quickly, the SEFMAT found outlets for the RIPACK range all over the world. Now, present in more than 140 countries, the RIPACK network is the most extensive in the market.
The quality of our products is inked to the quality of our service, which is why SEFMAT is committed to its international network providing a local service.

Mastering the technical flame for other markets
Its capacity to develop innovative and safe products has enabled SEFMAT to create different brands for different markets. The Jetpack brand specialises in road marking, the Ripack Supplies brand in protecting bulky industrial goods and lastly, Ripagreen in thermal weed control.
All these markets have something in common: a unique system which produces hot air over a wide area with unparalleled levels of safety.
By continually investing in research and development, SEFMAT is able to ensure it can provide its clients innovative, high-quality products.

2006 Extensions de pistolet ripack

A range of extensions
unique in the world

Ripack is the first brand to develop a "combo" extension system. This system allows 2 extensions to be nested, without tools, to form a longer one. Thanks to this development, our brand has established itself in the world of boat wintering and the protection of industrial goods under shrink wrap.

2012 Pistolet emballage professionnel Ripack

Innovating for the customer

In 2012, the Ripack 3000 model will include a quick igniter change system (no tools required) with on-board spare parts. This revolution allows the customer to change his igniter in a few seconds, even during an outdoor work site.

Mastering the technical flame in the service of other markets

SEFMAT's ability to develop innovative and secure products has enabled it to create different brands in different markets. The RIPACK® brand specialized in packaging, JETPACK® specialized in road marking, RIPACK SUPPLIES® in the protection of bulky industrial goods and finally, RIPAGREEN® in thermal weeding.
A common point on all these markets, a unique system in the world allowing the production of hot air over a wide area with unequalled safety levels.
SEFMAT invests increasingly in research and development, ensuring that it provides its customers with innovative and high quality products.
