EDL Packaging Engineer’s (EDL, edlpackaging.com) has entered into a partnership with General Packer LTD., Aichi, Japan, as the exclusive North American distributor of its pouch filling-sealing machines.  As part of its agreement EDL will manage the sale, installation, spare parts and post-installation services for General Packer.

This partnership aims to meet consumer demand for North American producers to transition from rigid packaging into a flexible packaging format. Dry good producers of milled grains, ancient grains, health foods, frozen and IQF foods, candies, pet food and treats, medicines, and medical supplies can expect:

  • Economical filling and sealing packaging equipment.
  • Extensive experience, research and development in the development of Oxygen Reduction through the use of Nitrogen gas flushing and full wash-down systems, and bag and pouch bundling.
  • Total integrated packaging line solutions.
  • Performance guarantee and commitment to local spare parts and after-sales service.

“Together, we will be able to provide total packaging line solutions to our mutual customers,” explains General Manager Ken Carter, “from pouch filling and sealing, to conveyors, ancillary equipment and secondary packaging options, including case packing and shrink wrapping and bundling.  Now customers can expect the same level of great service and level of packaging equipment in the General Packer brand.”

General Packer customers in North America will be serviced from Green Bay, WI, by a combination of trained EDL resources, an experienced General Packer service technician and General Packer’s North American representative.
