Company History

Since 1990, Weiler Labeling Systems has been a pioneer in labeling technology.

WLS was founded in 1990 as Sancoa Labeling Systems. In July of 2001 we became Weiler Labeling Systems. In April 2016, WLS became part of ProMach as a brand of ProMach Pharma. Our vision from the inception remains unchanged. That is to provide innovation and technology that allows our customers within the pharmaceutical and personal care industries to enhance their line speed, quality and efficiency. This vision has repeatedly positioned WLS on the forefront of industry trends often well before these trends have become widely accepted in the marketplace.

Our firsts to market are:

  • All systems utilize non-proprietary electronics
  • A reduced size Rotary is designed and patented for specific use in Pressure Sensitive labeling systems
  • Servomotor label heads become our standard in 1990 and incorporate a patent
  • Rotary Labeling is introduced to the Pharmaceutical Industry in 1991
  • A non-vacuum outserter utilizing a servo driven star wheel is patented in 1991
  • Standardization of a Touch Screen Computer for labeling systems in 1994
  • A vial labeler utilizing a trunnion roller assembly for high speed labeling in 1995
  • A label reconciliation device (Reconciler), to remove a detected bad label before container application, is patented in 2003
  • A retractable peel plate (Interceptor), to leave a detected bad label on the liner and therefore not apply it to the container, is patented in 2005
  • An adjustable quick-change star wheel capable of handling multiple size leaflets is patented in 2008

Some of our continuous innovations have been:

  • Totally redesigned, servomotor-driven, in-line and rotary labelers are introduced at Pack Expo in Chicago in 2012
  • Vial coders for cylindrical product brite-stocking are offered in 2014
  • B&R controls and motion become standard on both in-line and rotary labelers in 2016
  • A UV-cured Drop-On-Demand label printer is introduced at Interphex in 2018

Our early advancements were the driver of our growth and is responsible for our pre-eminent position as the leader in our chosen markets. We have become a world-class manufacturer and will continue to innovate and develop the packaging technologies of tomorrow. WLS supports its products like no one in the industry. Our customers can always count on a professional installation, training, documentation, timely service and spare parts delivery in any location.
