ProMach Performance Services is a single source of technical experts working together to deliver integrated solutions, engineering, design/build, and productivity software – anywhere in the world.
Cincinnati, Ohio — ProMach, a global provider of complete packaging machinery solutions, announced today the debut of their ProMach Performance Services offering. ProMach Performance Services is a network of technical experts working together to deliver the most efficient and economical solutions across four service platforms: integrated solutions, engineering, design/build, and productivity software. The new ProMach Performance Services offering will be showcased at Pack Expo in Las Vegas, September 25 to 27, 2017 (ProMach Performance Services Booth # C-3225).
The packaging industry has changed dramatically over the past two decades, and ProMach has continued to adapt to evolving customer needs. A little over a year ago, ProMach acquired Zarpac, an Ontario-based global engineering services provider focused on solutions for the packaging industry. Since that time ProMach has developed numerous successful turnkey packaging lines for customers worldwide and expanded manufacturing operations to include new facilities in Wuhu, China and Atlanta, Georgia – offering a combined almost 200,000 SF of additional space to support integration projects and increased customer demand.
“Our customers are continually challenged to do more with less in their organizations, and they are looking for a true partner to help them navigate the complicated waters of engineering, productivity, integration, and turnkey systems,” says Mark Anderson, ProMach President and CEO. “Zarpac is an outstanding organization with strong leadership, tremendous people, and unique capabilities, but we wanted customers to better understand what to expect when they work with us. The rebranding of these capabilities into ProMach Performance Services sets the bar for what customers can expect – a single source provider of complete turnkey integrated lines, productivity software, and more with a focus on one thing: performance. At the end of the day it’s about getting customers up and running quickly, efficiently, and with the best ROI, and we’re proud to put the ProMach brand on this offering.”
ProMach features 26 best-in-class product brands across six business lines: filling and capping, flexibles, pharma, product handling, end of line, and labeling and coding. The addition of this service line – ProMach Performance Services – creates another layer of customer services and transforms ProMach into a strong global partner that can inject measurable performance into any system, line, or process, regardless of which manufacturer’s machines are in the build—overcoming engineering challenges and unforeseen obstacles without walls and without limits.
“As consumer packaged goods engineering teams are getting smaller, companies are increasingly looking to partner with original equipment manufacturers, like ProMach, to provide engineering and integration services and become an extension of their business,” says Frank Volpe, ProMach Performance Services Vice President and General Manager. “We partner with customers from concept to completion with project management support and we take the time to know and understand their business, providing a full range of services from mechanical and electrical engineering, PLC programing, full plant layouts, OEE improvements, installation, startup, commissioning, and much more.”
“ProMach is in a unique position with industry-leading OEM solutions across the entire packaging line,” adds Volpe, “and while ProMach Performance Services can leverage any of ProMach’s strong product brands, we can also integrate any manufacturer’s machines into our lines, taking full responsibility and backing it with performance guarantees. Whether upgrading an existing line or putting in a brand new greenfield line, we will be there every step of the way with a single point of contact to ensure success and deliver innovation, creating the most efficient and economical solutions, anywhere in the world.”
