Hamer, Fischbein Merge, Form Bagging Powerhouse

January 8, 2016

Hamer and Fischbein Americas, both companies with a stronghold in the industrial bagging and bag-closing equipment industries, will combine operations to further enhance their ability to offer highly engineered, yet competitively priced, packaging equipment solutions to their customers.

The Hamer-Fischbein union combines almost 200 years of industrial bag closing and automated packaging experience. The company will continue to focus on its core businesses: bag filling, bag closing, automated bagging and robotic palletizing.  

“Hamer-Fischbein is a logical and strategic move for Duravant,” said Dan Brown, president of Hamer-Fischbein. “Combining the two companies’ technology and engineering strengths across our main equipment segments will accelerate new product development and allow us to bring this innovation and value to our customers.”

The company offers: fast, accurate bagging scales, bag sewing, sealing, and tagging systems; efficient, fully automatic bagging machines. “Hamer and Fischbein have historically served many of the same market segments and in many cases the same customer base,” said Brown. “Being united allows us to offer the best technology available, a more integrated and complete end-user solution, and expanded customer service base for our customers.”

The company will continue to operate out of manufacturing facilities in Plymouth, MN and Statesville, NC.
