Operating for over 60 years out of Hamilton, Ont., Edson Packaging Machinery is a vital strategic asset in the vast brand portfolio of its parent company ProMach, which nowadays owns over 40 different brands of packaging equipment manufacturers.
What makes Edson unique to packaging sector OEMs is that the company specializes in packaging for the tissue and non-woven industries, with between 85 to 90 per cent of its machines designed for high-speed secondary packaging of tissue and non-woven products.
“We are basically the only brand focused solely on the tissue and non-woven industries,” says Josh Goulet, account manager for Edson Packaging Machinery.
“No matter what kind of rolled paper products you’re using at home, whether its kitchen towels or bath tissue, it was most likely packaged on an Edson case-packer,” Goulet says.
While Edson has worked with various suppliers over the years to build its machines, one of its longest relationships has been with Festo Inc., which provides automation technologies and technical educational solutions out of its headquarters in Mississauga, Ont.
According to Goulet, the two companies have worked together on multiple projects since 1999.
“When it comes to controls on our equipment, our preferred provider is Festo,” Goulet says. “Edson and Festo have been collaborating together for over 20 years now.”
The latest project between Edson and Festo was a solution for Edson’s new model 3600HS High Speed Large Case and Tray Packer.
