Formed in 2002, Perftech was an innovator of perforation for shelf-life extension of fresh-cut produce, initially by using hot-needle perforation and subsequently laser perforation. Over the years, we have expanded our expertise through multiple complementary perforating technologies. Today we are America’s leading converter specializing exclusively in the perforation of flexible substrates.
In 2008 we moved into a brand-new 60,000-square-foot facility just west of Chicago. Placing us within a three-day shipping radius of nearly every customer, this central location allows us to readily serve converters and packers throughout the nation.
Our new facility was specially designed for optimal efficiency and hygiene. From the high-gloss paint on the floor to the shatter-proof fixtures on the ceiling, we took great care to ensure our facility would meet the most demanding requirements for material supplied to the food, medical and manufacturing markets.
Safe Quality Food (SQF) Certification
Perftech is pleased to announce that we have been granted a Safe Quality Food (SQF) Level II certification. The only certification recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative, it communicates that producers, suppliers, retailers and consumers can be assured of safe, quality food products. SQF certification likewise guarantees greater trust and acceptance among each supplier in the “farm to fork” chain.
Having achieved a rare perfect score on our initial third-party audit, Perftech demonstrates a total commitment to the highest standards for facility hygiene and cleanliness.
Our HAACP-based program ensures that our customers can count on us to safeguard both their material and their reputation.
Perftech understands that our customers must have confidence in our production. We provide detailed analyses of our perforation work and ensure that all of it can be precisely traced from source roll to finished rolls.
In addition to Six Sigma statistical analysis of our perforations, we can provide routine mechanical testing of customer-supplied material including:
- Microscopic evaluation of perforations
- Tear initiation and propagation
- Coefficient of friction
- Peel/seal strength
- Porosity as measured by airflow
