The machines are specifically for use with pressure sensitive, or sticky back labels and their application onto round product. The company has created a new category "on demand labelling".
Great Engineering began operating in 1992 and is owned by Ilme Kukainis and Peter O'Brien.
The business contracts out the manufacture of a small range of label applicators for use with self-adhesive labels.
Their niche market labellers - the BenchMAX, the BenchMARK and BenchMATE - were first exhibited in October 1992 at the Technical Wine Conference in Melbourne. More than 20% of Australian wineries own one of these machines.
The BenchMARK labeller has earned a worldwide reputation for reliability and capability. It is exported to 14 countries.
These machines are innovative, with an emphasis on design and quality.
Great Engineering has exhibited in Australia, Singapore, Chicago, Cape Town and Brazil.
The company has been represented by distributors in Argentina, Canada, Finland, Great Britain, Japan, New Zealand, Russia, South Africa, Brazil and the USA.
The principals of Great Engineering have visited distributors and potential distributors in Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, France, Germany, Great Britain, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, Scotland, South Africa and the USA.
The success of the BenchMARK and BencMATE machines has been largely attributed to the quality and features such as the "on demand" labelling facility that the BenchMAX provides. This machine is one of the world's most advanced fully optioned labelling machines and its characteristics present efficient and successful results.
Great Engineering owns the intellectual property of the equipment and each machine has been designed and engineered to the highest of quality and precision.
The company has also had success with delivering a new service - rental, where a customer can receive a labeller the following day.
Great Engineering possesses a rich history of excellence in labelling application and it is continuing to grow to suit their client's needs.
