Pro Mach's Wexxar division expands tray forming solutions with acquisition of IPak Machinery

Date: June 23, 2009

Cincinnati, OH - Pro Mach, Inc. announced today that its Wexxar Packaging division has acquired IPak Machinery Ltd., a leading designer and manufacturer of corrugated tray forming solutions based in Vancouver, British Columbia.

"We are pleased to add the IPak tray forming product line to Wexxar's existing case erecting and case sealing solutions and to the Pro Mach End-of-Line family of packaging products," said Mark Anderson, Pro Mach CEO. "We continually strive to improve our packaging solutions by upgrading our product line through development and acquisition and IPak tray formers are proven, high quality solutions that match extremely well with Wexxar's exceptional RSC solutions. We will continue to invest in and develop the IPak product line and, where appropriate, IPak tray formers will be combined with other Pro Mach packaging equipment to form a complete integrated line. We're excited about offering IPak's current and future customers a broader range of tray forming solutions and continuing and enhancing IPak's excellent service and support."

With the acquisition of IPak, Wexxar adds a durable line of fully automatic tray formers engineered to withstand heavy-duty applications for decades of reliable service. Depending on the complexity of tray style, they will continuously operate at speeds up to 35 trays per minute. All of IPak's standard models are quickly and easily adjusted to form a wide range of tray sizes. Unique features are engineered into IPak tray formers to produce a level of efficiency and reliability that is unmatched by competitors' machinery. Top quality design, construction and component selection combined with outstanding service have earned IPak a reputation for reliability, dependability and outstanding value. The IPak product line also includes other machinery such as tray stackers, flange sealers, blank feed systems and more.

"Our focus always has been providing durable, high quality, cost-effective tray forming equipment," said Mike Mack, President of IPak Machinery, Ltd. He added, "We have a large installed base of highly satisfied customers and I am pleased, as I believe our customers will be, that the IPak product line will benefit from Wexxar's expertise and experience in corrugated. Combining with the resources of Pro Mach will ensure that our customers and the marketplace will have better access to our proven solutions and their inherent green, cost-saving features."

Wexxar Packaging manufactures high quality systems for case forming and sealing. Since 1977, Wexxar has designed and manufactured leading edge case erecting, case sealing and tray forming machinery for corrugated container packaging. With machines still running which were designed and built over 20 years ago, Wexxar has proven the value of solution-based engineering.

According to Barry Heiser, President of Pro Mach's End-of-Line Business Unit, "The acquisition of the IPak tray former product line further expands Pro Mach's ability to meet customer's needs with a comprehensive line of integrated end-of-line packaging solutions which already includes Rennco, Brenton, Currie by Brenton, Orion and Wexxar. We are very excited to bring this technology to all of our customers in support of their cost reduction and green initiatives."
