ESS Technologies Inc. (esstechnologies.com) is celebrating 25 years supplying high performance automated packaging machinery and robotics. Founded in 1993 by Kevin and Linda Browne as an engineering, sales and service (ESS) outlet for other package machinery OEMS, the company soon began manufacturing our own line of automated packaging machines.
ESS partnered with FANUC Robotics (now FANUC America) as an Authorized System Integrator (ASI) after meetings between the two companies in 1999. In 2000 ESS debuted its Model V30 Vertical Robotic Case Packer. At the 2002, ESS debuted its popular MB Series Monoblock Filler/Capper.
Today, ESS is a FANUC Strategic Partner for secondary packaging of pharmaceuticals. The company's product line now includes fully automated packaging machines for manufacturers of pharmaceuticals, medical devices, cosmetics and consumer goods.
As the company grew, ESS continued to expand its line of automated packaging machines and integrated robotic cells. In addition to solutions for filling and capping bottles, jars, vials and syringes, ESS now offers a full line of automatic horizontal and top load cartoners, robotic top load and side load case packers, wrap around case packers, robotic pallet cells and TaskMate robotic systems for machine loading and unloading, pick-and-place, and inspection. The full product line allows ESS to offer complete end-to-end packaging lines that handle primary and secondary packaging processes.
