Our Philosophy About Machine Design

From the very start, we decided that we would build the best quality machinery with the finest materials and most reliable components we could find in the United States. We chose this design philosophy without knowing if the marketplace could afford this simple focus on quality alone. We were pleased to learn that despite our uncompromising focus on quality, our machinery remains very competitively priced. This quality-first design philosophy is an extension of the customers we wish to serve – driven, goal-oriented people who recognize the link between having the best quality tools for the job and being economically successful.

Do Your Due Diligence Before You Buy

Your liquid packaging system is a huge capital investment. Visit the factories personally and compare their organizations, facilities, resources, and product quality. Witness factory acceptance testing for other customers at the plant. Get references from customers in your industry who have had the equipment for more than 5 years. Ask these customers what their customer service experience has been. Finally, ask the supplier where the equipment is produced – this will greatly impact your equipment and part quality!

There are many internet-based companies and equipment suppliers that import cheaply made and poorly designed equipment. Much of this equipment does not have UL electrical certification and their installation may be banned by local municipal or state regulations. Our machinery electrical systems are offered as UL listed for both the USA and Canada.
