Stretchwrapping machinery manufacturer Wulftec International, Ayer’s Cliff, Que.-based subsidiary of end-of-line packaging equipment supplier M.J. Maillis Group, has reached an agreement with industrial automation technologies manufacturer Rockwell Automation of Milwaukee, Wis., under which Wulftec will standardize Rockwell’s automation components and software—including Allen-Bradley series controls and Rockwell Software solutions—across its full range of stretchwrapping machinery to achieve seamless integrated architecture for reduced TCO (total cost of ownership) and optimal performance for end-user customers.
“We look forward to benefiting from Rockwell Automation and their strong innovation and product development for years to come,” says Wulftec’s group engineering manager for the machines division Guy Lopes. “Customers look for reliable products that offer quick service and easier maintenance, and with Rockwell’s seamless distribution structure, we are able to provide our customers just that.”
