Lambert has been an industry leader and manufacturer of conventional palletizers for more than 66 years, introducing the first automatic palletizer to the North American market in 1948.

“Arpac has strategically grown to be an industry leader in conventional palletizing, robotic palletizing and packaging systems integration by anticipating and understanding the needs of our customers and delivering complete end-of-line integrated solutions that best serve them,” says Gary Ehmka, vice president of sales and marketing of Arpac.

“We look forward to the strong synergy which will be a direct result of incorporating our complementary product line within ARPAC’s unmatched one stop solution,” said Bob Manion, President, Lambert Material Handling. “It’s a win-win for all of our customers, employees and the industry.”
