Barry-Wehmiller to Debut BW Flexible Systems Division in 2018
Responding to rising demand for its innovative flexible packaging equipment, Barry-Wehmiller is creating a new division dedicated to meeting these needs.
On January 1, 2018, the flexible packaging experts from Hayssen Flexible Systems and the bag converting and bag filling divisions of Thiele Technologies will come together to form a single team as BW Flexible Systems. Led by Doug McGraw, BW Flexible Systems will specialize in the development, manufacture and sales of flexible packaging equipment, including horizontal and vertical form-fill-seal solutions, bag converting and filling-sealing of pre-made bags. The team will also integrate scales and bag palletizers.
“Over the last 30 years, Barry-Wehmiller has acquired more than 50 companies in the packaging industry, bringing together a large base of talent and technology,” says Bob Chapman, Barry-Wehmiller chairman and CEO. “This new alignment will better position our packaging companies for organic growth, provide more opportunities for our team members and take better care of our customers.”
