Columbia/Okura LLC, a provider of robotic palletizing solutions, is excited to announce the formation of a strategic alliance with Statec Binder, a packaging and palletizing supplier, specializing in bagging solutions. This customer-focused alliance was initiated by each company’s desire to provide North American producers with fully automated bag line solutions.
This agreement combines Columbia/Okura’s robotic bag palletizing expertise with Statec Binder’s global experience with woven poly, FFS, multi-wall paper, and laminated paper/poly bag packaging technologies. The alliance positions Columbia/Okura to provide customers in North America with “single source supply” open-mouth and form-fill-seal bagging and palletizing lines.
Okura Yusoki Co., Ltd., one of Columbia/Okura’s JV owners, established a relationship with Statec Binder in Europe years ago, when Statec Binder became a key integration partner for Okura’s line of dedicated palletizing robots for complete bagging line solutions for customer requirements around the world. The alliance in North America marks the next step in the progression of the companies’ collaboration.
