Over the years, their portfolio expanded to include more advanced packaging solutions, including product inspection, coding, and marking systems.
In 2008, their partnership with Markem-Imaje further enriched their offerings. They also became regional distributors for various Mettler-Toledo PI-group companies, like Safeline metal detectors and X-ray systems. Their recent collaboration with Raytech Vision and ULMA showcases their commitment to innovative and reliable packaging solutions.
