Packing and dispatching powder and granulates

We deliver industry leading products and solutions for large cement plants and small dispatch terminals – from basic manual operations up to the highest level of automation. Our focus on accuracy, capacity and productivity in packaging and dispatching enable our customers to optimise the final element of their operations process.

 

Through fully-automated solutions for bagging, palletising, and truck and train loading, we help our customers run safe and cost effective operations.

 

Our main market is the cement industry, where we provide market-leading packing and logistics solutions for optimum productivity and safety. We also use the vast experience we have built up over more than half a century in the cement industry in adjacent industries, where we provide productivity solutions to businesses that rely on efficient operations for packing and dispatching of powder and granulated products.
