Capabilities in high-speed rotary labeling expand Pro Mach’s advanced integrated solutions portfolio and bolster Pro Mach’s growing Pharmaceutical Packaging Group.
CINCINNATI, OH—Pro Mach, Inc. continues to add to its capabilities in the growing pharmaceutical packaging market. The global integrated packaging solutions leader announced it has acquired New Jersey-based provider of high-speed rotary labeling, serialization and coding solutions, Weiler Labeling Systems.
The addition of Weiler expands Pro Mach’s capabilities in the complex serialization, documentation and Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) requirements of pharmaceutical and medical packagers.
Weiler has been at the forefront of premium high-speed rotary labelers for more than 25 years and holds six patents for its systems.
In addition to the pharmaceutical marketplace, Weiler solutions are also counted on by personal care and other consumer goods companies, providing innovation and technology that allows customers to enhance their line speed, quality, and efficiency.
“We’re pleased to welcome the Weiler team to Pro Mach,” says Pro Mach president of the Pharmaceutical Packaging Group Michel Lapierre. “Weiler has built a stellar reputation among the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies and their solutions are a great addition to our product portfolio. Their expertise and vision has repeatedly put them at the forefront of pharmaceutical industry trends well before they are adopted in the marketplace. Combined with the existing solutions of our NJM Packaging brand we can now offer customers one of the most sophisticated pharmaceutical labeling and packaging platforms in the industry today.”
Weiler recently introduced a new integrated label serialization system that pre-codes bottles during handling. By employing advanced vision recognition systems, bottles can still be in registration on a rotary labeler, while serialized label codes are associated with the bottle tracking codes. In final packaging, bottles can be simply aggregated by re-acquiring pre-printed tracking codes. The system reduces production time, effort, and speed to market.
“Pro Mach’s reputation for continued investment in their brands as well as bundling solutions to better serve customers played a big part in getting this deal done,” said Weiler president Ted Geiselman. “We wanted to be a part of the Pro Mach team so we could create additional value for our customers as well as create new opportunities to expand our business.”
Geiselman will join Pro Mach as vice-president and general manager. Pro Mach will continue to invest in Weiler’s team and operations to strengthen their pharmaceutical packaging product portfolio and accelerate growth in key markets. Pro Mach anticipates steady continued growth in the packaging equipment market worldwide.
“We continue to add organizations that bring a great deal of experience and success in different aspects of packaging line creation and performance,” says Pro Mach president and chief executive officer Mark Anderson. “We’re delighted about the unique advantages Weiler solutions bring, especially when combined with our vast product portfolio that starts at the filler and runs all the way to the end of the packaging line. We’re also enthusiastic about the added potential to expand our position as the preferred single-source provider of complete packaging line solutions.”
