The Packmate brand was founded by a practical need for an efficient packaging friend. In twenty years, the small firm has grown into a global organisation serving over a dozen of the Fortune 500.
In 2005, Packmate exhibit on its first Interpack Trade Fair in Dusseldorf, Germany. The machines immediately stunned visitors as one of the best-in-class packaging solution.
