Cincinnati, OH – ProMach, Inc. continues to add to its capabilities in the growing pharmaceutical packaging market. The global integrated packaging solutions leader announced today it has acquired New Jersey-based provider of high-speed rotary labeling, serialization and coding solutions, Weiler Labeling Systems.
The addition of Weiler expands ProMach’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 ProMach,” says Michel Lapierre, President of ProMach’s Pharmaceutical Packaging Group. “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.
“ProMach’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 ProMach team so we could create additional value for our customers as well as create new opportunities to expand our business.”
Geiselman will join ProMach as Vice President and General Manager. ProMach will continue to invest in Weiler’s team and operations to strengthen their pharmaceutical packaging product portfolio and accelerate growth in key markets. ProMach 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 Mark Anderson, ProMach President and CEO. “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.”
