Sharing passion, inspiration & knowledge since 1952

For 3 generations we share our passion for innovation & technology. Developing automated solutions to pack, weigh fill or count products for industrial use is our core business. Specifically for the bread & pastry industry we developed our own innovative and patented 3D vision counting system as well as a unique and patented robotised technology to pick up artisan bread and fragile pastry products.​

With our continuous commitment to innovation and by investing in the development of new packaging concepts, our family company has established a strong reputation as trendsetter, maintaining a market leading position. It's a process driven by your current and future needs.

It's all about U

Our ultimate goal is to eliminate your packaging problems. And we want you to feel satisfied about the way we do that. From the first contact, through the entire production phase and installation phase, until many years after your line has been started-up, you can count on us. Join us for a worry-free journey.
