Packaging Partners has purchased the assets and design IP of Adaptapack, the robotic case packing technology business developed by Walls Machinery, which went into administration late last year.
“We’ve been looking for an opportunity to enter the intermittent RSC case packing sector for a while now, as it’s very complementary to our other interests in the packaging machinery space,” said Phil Biggs, Packaging Partners director. “These flexible packers are particularly suited to low- to medium-speed food and dairy applications, for both rigid and flexible primary packs. They are ideal for market opportunities we’ve identified in both Australia and also Asia.”
Packaging Partners has appointed Foodmach as the Australian distribution agent for the extensive product range.
“Our team at Foodmach has extensive technical knowledge of case packing, and so along with our robotic palletising, conveying, line control and Robopac stretch wrapping technologies, we can now supply seamless and fully integrated end-of-line packaging solutions,” said Earle Roberts, Foodmach CCO.
Packaging Partners confirmed the Adaptapack brand will be discontinued, however, the company will support the extensive installed base of machines in Australia and Asia via its distribution partners.
