What Sets Volm Apart?
The Volm Difference
Innovation in Action
Some manufacturers sell only the commodity items they stock. Others are completely custom. Volm delivers the very best of both. While offering a complete catalog of standard bags and packaging, mesh fabric products and more, we retain the ability to tailor our offerings to meet whatever specifications you demand. Looking for a custom color combination for your brand compliant mesh bags? We can do it, just as we have for some of the most recognized consumer brands in the nation.
What began as a single production house in 1988 providing mesh bags for the fresh produce industry has since evolved into multiple manufacturing facilities that provide numerous product solutions for many markets.
Our capabilities include the manufacturing of Half-N-Half® produce bags, all mesh L-sewn, wicketed mesh, and tube style bags, Leno woven bags, and baler bags. We also provide both Raschel rollstock and 3, 4 and 5-panel roll stock for Vertical Form, Fill and Seal machines using two mesh styles.
In 2009, Volm began manufacturing Ultratech® mesh, our proprietary mesh, as a sustainable produce packaging alternative that provides strength and stability while reducing the volume of material used.
Volm also manufactures knitted mesh fabric used for shade, wind, and privacy screen, fencing, construction fabrics and silt fence. Our products are UV stable and available in multiple colors, widths, and constructions.
