Massman Companies, a developer of packaging machinery, has announced its acquisition of Ultra Packaging, Inc. (UPI), which develops cartoning machinery.
UPI designs robust vertical and horizontal automated cartoning machines for applications across the food, personal care, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries. These machines are high speed continuous motion machines in multiple configurations, from manual to full robotic loading.
UPI is the latest acquisition for Massman in automated packaging. The addition of UPI’s cartoning products to Massman’s portfolio enables it to offer full-line solutions.
“Companies are increasingly looking for efficient solutions to improve output and lower costs,” said Jeffrey Hohn, president and CEO of Massman Companies.
“Cartoning, shrink wrapping, and case packing are three technologies often performed together. Massman’s offering of reliable and robust products in all three categories simplifies our customers’ path to automated packaging.”
Bob Stockus, owner and president of UPI, said, “I am thrilled that UPI is now part of the Massman family of packaging machinery solutions.
“The resources Massman can provide will build and expand the customer partnerships.”
