In March 2011 Adco assigned Emrich Industries as its exclusive distributor in both Australia and New Zealand. Emrich has been working with Adco for a number of months and has sold 4 packaging machines into the Australian market. Alastair Sloan, General Manager of Emrich, has officially signed an exclusive deal with Adco's owners to represent them in Australia.
With their range of vertical cartoners, tray formers, tray closers and sleeving equipment for a range of industry groups including beverage, frozen food and snack food, Adco will effectively expand the Emrich product range of primary packaging equipment. Emrich’s intent to grow into the secondary packaging machinery market is now much more possible as Adco provides a comprehensive range of downstream equipment for Emrich’s horizontal and vertical flow wrapping and bagging equipment.
