THANK YOU TO ALL OUR LOYAL CUSTOMERS! You sure kept us busy in 2016. The result – several additions to our staff and many exciting new product innovations.
In Sales and Marketing, Adam Reay joined our group early in the year and promptly worked his way up to Regional Sales Manager. Melissa Muir has taken over Reception and Admin responsibilities with a spirit and enthusiasm sure to bring a smile to your face. And Kevin Lozada, is the new Marketing Specialist providing a fresh look and feel to our promotional efforts. In Tech Support we welcomed Dean Hayes to the Service Department to assist in support of our growing installed base of liquid filling and packaging machinery. And joining a seasoned staff of design engineers, Josh Aide, Project Engineer, is already contributing new ideas.
On the equipment side, several new process configurations were developed based on our AE and ME platforms of Net Weight Filling Machines. Take a look at our YouTube channel to see some of these products in action. Perhaps the most notable break-through was the launch of DFSReady™, the most flexible liquid filling technology available. Electronically introduced at PackExpo 2016, in Chicago, DFSReady™ was featured in our November Blog. An extension of Ideal-Pak®s Patented DFS® design, DFSReady™ delivers exceptional automation but is extremely easy to set-up and maintain. Down time for product change-over is a matter of seconds.
As many of our customers know, we aren’t just about the liquid filling process. Ideal-Pak® is a leader in related packaging systems, especially when it comes to Plastic Pail Lid Placing and Closing. For automating this step in the process, Ideal-Pak® engineers have developed a brand new ALP-O/CA-CEM Lid Placer and Closer for high-speed pail lines. With so many other product advancements in 2016 this one hasn’t yet been featured in a Blog. If the ability to Orientate, Place, and Close Friction-Style Lids on 5 gallon pails at speeds up to 30 CPM is interesting for your process, keep an eye on our 2017 Blogs hitting emails near you!
In all sincerity, thank you for your attention and your business in 2016. One of the oldest manufacturers of Liquid Filling machines, Ideal-Pak® has been delivering innovative solutions for Industrial Applications since 1949 and, with your assistance, we plan to continue for many, many more years to come. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas, feliz Navidad, feliz Natal, 形容词名词, fröhliche Weihnachten, Happy Hanukkah, חנוכה שמח, and Happy Kwanzaa, Furaha ya Kwanzaa. May you, your family, and your colleagues enjoy great health and prosperity in 2017.
