Sealing equipment maker Gramatech was acquired by IMPAK Corporation, a provider of custom-built sealing equipment and innovative packaging solutions, Los Angeles-based IMPAK announced via press release Thursday.

“One of the more valuable things that Gramatech brings to the table is a 20-plus-year-old established business with excellent distributor relationships. Our custom machine capabilities can turn that network in to a unique distribution channel in the U.S., Canada, and even worldwide,” Kevin Cullen, president of IMPAK Corporation, said in a stamtenet.

IMPAK said it plans to add Gramatech’s product line to its existing line of vacuum and heat sealing technology.

“The number of companies with the Gramatech Series of 21, 26, 31 or 36-inch heavy duty production model sealers is an open door for our custom capabilities,” said R. Hasan, director of the machinery department.

Several former Gramatech employees joined IMPAK ahead of the acquisition, including project manager Tod Cooper and Sergio Flores.

“I was already impressed with IMPAK’s short lead times on sophisticated Siemens technology-based custom machinery. In the case of Gramatech and its distributor network, I think they’re going to be truly impressed with the quality of economic options, such as the under $1000 vacuum sealer we will be introducing at PackExpo in September this year,” said Cooper in the company’s release.

IMPAK said taking on Gramatech’s network provides an opportunity to drive new innovation.

“We’ll not only serve and support Gramatech’s existing network, we’ll also lend our ears as we move forward with new developments in sealing equipment. A collaborative relationship with our customers has been a cornerstone in the advancement of new features and technologies, and we plan to continue that with Gramatech’s former customers,” said Hasan.
