Duravant LLC, a global engineered equipment and automation solutions provider to the food processing, packaging, and material handling sectors, introduces nVenia LLC, a new operating company within Duravant’s Packaging Solutions Segment formed by combining Arpac, Hamer-Fischbein, and Ohlson into a single entity.
Leveraging the strengths of Arpac, Hamer, Fischbein, and Ohlson, nVenia is positioned to be a leading equipment designer, manufacturer and integrator for primary, secondary, and end-of-line packaging solutions.
Arpac equipment includes shrink wrappers, tunnels and bundlers, tray and case formers and packers, and robotic and conventional palletizers. Fischbein offers open-mouth bag sewing and sealing systems. Hamer equipment includes industrial bagging automation, with a comprehensive portfolio of solutions including weighing, forming, filling, sewing, sealing, and complete bag management. Ohlson offers rugged, accurate primary packaging lines to weigh, count, and fill all types of packages, from flexible pouches to jars to rigid containers.
All four company names will continue to thrive as product brands within the nVenia product offering and will be prominently featured as such on nVenia equipment.
“The union of these four equipment brands reflects a new era, further strengthening Duravant’s leadership position in the North American packaging industry,” said Mike Kachmer, president and CEO of Duravant. “By bringing these brands together under one roof and one name, we are creating next-level packaging equipment, integration, and innovation solutions for our customers.”
nVenia will operate from a newly constructed, 256,000-sq-ft facility in Wood Dale, IL, minutes from Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport. The facility is planned to open in April 2021 with nVenia’s existing manufacturing sites transitioning into this single location throughout the remainder of the year.
“nVenia’s new home is a world-class facility with a state-of-the-art Customer Experience Center, outfitted with demonstration, lab, and training capabilities designed to welcome customers and guests to engage with the complete nVenia family of packaging brands,” said Thurman Melson, president of nVenia.
