At Meridian we are environmentally conscious and take care to ensure 100% of our plastic waste is recycled.

Poly Bags



All Waste

Our Process

Manufactured locally in our Brisbane facility, our poly bags are versatile and suited to any purpose. When producing poly bags, we consider three main parameters: width, length and gauge (or thickness). We offer full customisation for poly bags including size, tint or colour, print, punch holes, handle punches and perforations. No matter your variables, we have the solution for your needs.

Our poly tube, which can be used to package individual products, is created through what is known as blown film extrusion. A poly tube is created firstly by blowing a bubble of plastic to its desired width. The gauge of the tube is then determined by the speed in which it passes through the nip rollers. For a thicker gauge, the rollers pull the poly tube very slowly to increase thickness, or for a thinner gauge, the rollers will pull the tube through at a faster pace, offering flexibility and choice for our clients. 

At Meridian we do our utmost to reduce our carbon footprint. Our factory roof houses 190 individual solar panels, producing almost 60 kilowatts of electricity. On a sunny day, not only do we create enough energy to power our entire factory, but our solar panels feed excess electricity back into the grid.
