The Thailand Floods of 2011 have had a devastating impact on the region and the world. Many industrial areas were affected by the disaster, and a variety of industries have been impacted. Since the early 1980’s, Maxpak has manufactured certain types of products (eg. bin liners, singlet bags and carton liners) in Thailand.

Unfortunately, flood damage has caused a shortage of cardboard cartons – and therefore some of the MaxValu range of products will temporarily be packed in plain generic cardboard cartons. Below are some examples.
