An NY-based specialist in liquid filling and assembly machines, TurboFil will assume sales & servicing duties across eastern and central US for UK-based Sewtec’s packaging & end-of-line equipment.
Mount Vernon, NY – TurboFil Packaging Machines LLC, an equipment specialist dedicated solely to the design and development of liquid filling and assembly machines, has been named an official US sales & service representative for UK-based Sewtec Automation, which manufacturers packaging and other end-of-line equipment.
Moving forward, TurboFil will exclusively handle sales, after sales/maintenance support, marketing and parts shipping for Sewtec customers in the eastern and central United States. Close collaborations will include joint equipment solutions for several of the industries that both TurboFIl and Sewtec serve, including the pharmaceuticals, medical devices, cosmetics and personal care products sectors. The agreement excludes the westernmost states (CA, UT, OR, ID, NV, AZ, NM, CO, WY, MT & WA).
In addition to bespoke solutions designed to meet specific customer needs, Sewtec Automation offers a range of automated packaging machines that provide accurate, reliable product and case handling. Serving the pharmaceuticals, medical device, personal care and cosmetics markets, Sewtec’s equipment portfolio includes case erectors and closers, top-load cartoners, palletizing systems, pallet loaders and pickers.
For TurboFil, the new partnership expands its equipment offerings while providing opportunities for customized, synergistically developed solutions. Turbofil’s machinery range includes syringe fillers, cappers, vial crimpers and handling systems, among other solutions.
The partnership makes possible a broader range of customer servicing scenarios. TurboFil frequently receives requests for combination setups that integrate, for example, unit dose filling, capping, labeling applications with primary, secondary and transit packaging. Often, the goal is to perform most or all of these functions automatically.
Here, Sewtec serves as a natural match. After being filled, capped and labeled by TurboFil equipment, products can be placed in individual blister packs before continuing to a cartoning module for a finished, retail-ready product. The packages can then be placed into larger shippers and loaded onto pallets for distribution.
“This new partnership with TurboFil is a fantastic opportunity for both parties,” said Andy Perks, Head of Sales at Sewtec Automation added. “Our experience with end-of-line packaging automation perfectly complements TurboFil’s assembly and filling machines, allowing us to offer a complete production line solution to customers.”
“Our strategic alignment with Sewtec provides TurboFil customers with comprehensive, production-to-packaging manufacturing options,” said Deborah Smook, VP of Marketing & Business Development for TurboFil Packaging Machines LLC. “The result is a one-shop-stop sales and maintenance setup that simplifies everything from factory acceptance tests and installation to after-sales oversight and parts procurement.”
