Does your current vendor have the tools and parts for on- and off-site repairs and service? If not, then maybe it's time to rethink your vendor choice.
Because we don't believe the relationship should end when the invoice is paid.


When was the last time you had to worry about who to send your broken strapping tools to for repair? Were you able to call the vendor that sold it to you to
ask for help or had they washed their hands of you when they shipped you your product and you cut the check for the total? 

If we're going to sell it to you, we believe we should be there every step of the way. And that includes providing packaging equipment installation, service, strapping tool repairs, and parts on all the packaging tools and equipment that we sell. Our manufacturer-trained and certified technicians have years of experience in servicing major brands of hand tools and packaging equipment.

The way our customers feel about us is important. To us, the more we can help you to succeed, the more likely you will be to want to continue working with us.  It’s not about nickels and dimes.  Your time is more valuable than that.  You want a fast response and a dedicated team: a company that knows what the heck it's doing. You want a relationship. Don't worry: we've got your back.


It's not just about selling you something and wishing you well; our certified Product Specialists
will help install the equipment at your facility and train your staff in proper operations.

Packaging Equipment Installation and Training:
The First Two Essential Elements for Success

Just as you would expect your new in-home appliances to be installed and serviced by a trained professional, we ensure that all the stretch or strapping equipment we sell is installed by our very own factory-trained and fully certified technicians to the full specifications of the manufacturer. And we don't stop there: we ensure that our work meets your final approval because you're the one who will be living with the equipment after we leave the building.

We also require that our knowledgable staff performs training sessions both during and after the installation of your equipment because it is critical to us that your operators are trained and familiar with proper procedures and safety guidelines for any equipment that we represent.

Installation and On-Site Training

Using any new product will always come with some degree of learning curve. And that's where we come in: we're looking to make that learning curve as easy as possible to navigate. We always ensure we provide operation manuals and customized training programs.

  • Operation manuals are machine-specific and provide details about machine function, maintenance, purchased component documentation, safety and operating procedures.
  • On-site training sessions are meant to help your team increase machine productivity and operator efficiency, while reducing maintenance costs.
  • We only send factory-trained technicians to work in your facility to help you achieve your business goals is knowledgeable and can handle the installations from start to finish.

Value-Added Service Offerings to Start Strong

We also offer additional value-added services that most other suppliers don't:

  • Training: Once we leave your site, we want to make sure that your operators are up for the challenge, which means that we provide thorough and proper training during and after your installation for worry-free operation and maximum safety procedures.
  • Priority Service: We stand behind our customers and vow to support your equipment for the lifecycle of the machinery. When you have an established relationship with us, you will always be given priority service. 
  • Emergency Service: You may not run on a regular day shift schedule, so why should we? We maintain an emergency toll-free number for customers to call any time for technical help or to have a technician dispatched.

You make sure that your car is serviced regularly to avoid breaking down on the side of the road with all your kids and a car full of luggage on your way to that dream vacation, don't you?

What's the best way to avoid costly surprises?
Prevent them.

We offer full preventative maintenance programs.When you buy a car, you always make sure to keep up a regular preventative maintenance routine, as recommended by the dealership and the car's manufacturer.

  • Every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, you get your oil changed.
  • Every 30,000 miles, you check and replace your spark plugs.
  • Every 50,000 miles, you make sure to check brakes, belts, engine components, and more.

Why? Because you're looking to extend the life of your car and save money on the hugely costly repairs that come from not performing this routine, preventative mainentance regime. So, why should it be any different with the packaging tools and equipment in your facility? That equipment that is the basis of your livelihood.

Our Planned Maintenance Program is designed to focus on three main areas:
  • Semi-Automatic Equipment: If you have semi-automatic equipment on-site, our Planned Maintenance Program will include two technician visits during the first year. During these visits, your equipment is thoroughly inspected and adjustments, if needed, are made to assure safe and proper operation.
  • Automatic Equipment: For automatic equipment, our Planned Maintenance Program will include one technician visit each quarter for the first year following installation. The quarterly visits include the same protocol as the sem-automatic visits, including a thorough inspection and all necessary adjustments to ensure appropriate operation.
  • Annual Programs:  In addition to our standard Planned Maintenance Program, we also offer an Annual Maintenance Program which features all the same benefits of the regular program, but on a yearly basis with a fixed rate, for as long as you keep your equipment.
