Ropak Owner Loss

On the morning of February 10, 2023, Ernest Lynden Matthews, one of the founders of Ropak and its current owner, passed away. He was 88 years old.

Ernest was a machinist and inventor. In the early 1970’s he was the driving force behind the creation and development of the original Ropak packaging machine, which multiplied the number of sugar packs produced by a single machine by a factor of 10.

Please keep the Matthews family and the Ropak community in your thoughts and prayers during this time.
