CINCINNATI—Pro Mach, Inc. has acquired Greydon, Inc., a leading manufacturer of inline printing and coding solutions for flexible packaging.
The addition of Greydon expands Pro Mach’s extensive labeling and coding product offering and complements existing capabilities in flexible packaging. Pro Mach is known worldwide for developing innovative integrated solutions by combining capabilities from its multiple brands. Pro Mach expects product integration with Greydon to be particularly valuable to customers in shared end user markets such as medical device, pharmaceuticals, nutrition, food, meat and dairy.
“We’re pleased to welcome the outstanding Greydon team,” says Pro Mach president and chief executive officer Mark Anderson. “Greydon strengthens our ability to be one of the most comprehensive labeling and coding solution providers in the packaging industry. They add value to our flexible packaging solutions and provide opportunities to further develop our integrated system product offering. Our goal has always been to better serve our customers globally by adding high quality solutions that enhance our existing strengths or extend our range of integrated systems.”
Greydon, established in 1993, delivers high quality, innovative printing systems for a wide variety of flexible packaging applications and materials, focusing on developing inline or retrofitted printing and coding solutions for form fill and seal machines for medical device, pharmaceutical, and food packagers.
Greydon’s new Genesis digital ink printing solution produces high definition output on most materials, including paper, Tyvek, and flexible webs using UV ink. Genesis prints complete graphics and variable coding information that can be quickly and easily changed for different products and applications. Its innovative film handling and print system is patent pending. Genesis delivers ideal performance and return on investment for medical device and pharmaceutical manufacturers who require high quality labeling and coding for product validation, tracking, identification, and branding.
York, Pennsylvania-based Greydon and its team, including company founders Greg and John Rochon, will join Pro Mach’s labeling & coding group led by Alan Shipman. The group includes well-known brands such as LSI and ID Technology, a leading supplier of printer/applicators in the North American market.
“We’re excited about what Greydon brings to Pro Mach and the opportunity to support our customers with new, innovative solutions,” says Shipman. “Together, we have outstanding opportunities to expand our solutions in key markets and develop new products that complement our extensive ID Technology product line, as well other key product lines across Pro Mach.”
Pro Mach is a premier packaging and processing machinery manufacturer and integrated system provider, with more than 25 equipment brands sold throughout the world. In addition to labeling and coding, Pro Mach manufactures and integrates solutions for bottling and capping, primary packaging, flexible packaging, material handling, and end of line. Pro Mach continues to grow rapidly with a global customer base and operations in North America and Europe. In June this year, Pro Mach added a shared services facility in Mexico to better serve Latin American customers.
“This is an outstanding opportunity for our customers to achieve greater value from their packaging investments,” says Greg Rochon. “Greydon is joining an organization with a strong tradition of innovation, leadership, growth, and customer service and our entire customer base will now have access to a full range of solutions across the whole packaging line to handle their unique coding and packaging requirements.”
