Thiele Technologies acquires Symach Palletizers

March 5, 2014 — Thiele Technologies announced the acquisition of Symach palletizers business based in Terneuzen, The Netherlands.  Symach is an industry leader in end-of-line palletizing and load-securing technology. This is Thiele Technologies’ seventh acquisition in nine years, creating one of the largest and most well-balanced providers of comprehensive end-of-line packaging equipment solutions for a broad range of global markets.

According to Smith, “We couldn’t be more pleased to welcome Symach to our team.  Throughout the process, we’ve found their team to be superb.  Each person is dedicated to what they do – building quality equipment that contributes to their customers’ success.”  He continues, “The combination of Thiele and Symach will provide excellent value for all of our customers by expanding not only our product offerings, but adding richly to both companies by sharing our strengths and experiences.”

The acquisition of Symach impacts both the Flexible and Rigid Business groups of Thiele Technologies.  Thiele’s Flexible division handles bagged products – ranging from flour mixes to soil to pet food.  The addition of Symach’s line will strengthen Thiele’s capabilities as a supplier of total bag handling solutions for the industrial markets. Combining Thiele’s weighing, bag filling and bag closing solutions with Symach’s palletizing and load securing technology further expands its capabilities to serve the global markets.

Thiele’s Rigid division handles products packaged in cases and cartons, including bliss and tray equipment, often used in the produce industry.  Symach also plays a dominant role in the Produce Bag/Case Palletizing market segment, handling challenging products including potatoes, onions and more. With a dedicated manufacturing location in Reedley, California, Thiele has a strong presence in the Corrugate Tray and Bliss forming/erecting machines for the agricultural produce industry.

Established more than a decade ago, Symach has been building innovative, quality palletizing solutions for customers in a variety of industries worldwide.  With many successful past installations, Symach has tripled in size during that time.  Sacha Bakker, Sales & Market Development Director for Symach says, “This will be an exciting new chapter in our history.  We look forward to joining the teams of Thiele and Barry-Wehmiller, continuing to offer the fantastic service and top-notch equipment on which we’ve built our reputation and business.”

Thiele Technologies, a division of Barry-Wehmiller Companies, Inc., was formed as an operating group in 1998 through the acquisition of Bemis Packaging Machinery Company and the subsequent integration of Thiele Engineering Company, Master Palletizer, Frontier Equipment, Edmeyer, Slidell, Streamfeeder, SWF Companies, Inc. and Nigrelli Systems.
