Schneider Packaging Equipment, specializing in end-of-line solutions for case packing and palletizing needs, announced today it has acquired the assets of S&R Machinery.  S&R Machinery is a premier supplier of both random and uniform case sealers. Based in Olyphant, Pennsylvania, S&R Machinery has been producing sealers since 1995.

“The addition of S&R’s random and uniform case sealing machinery expands our standard equipment portfolio and also complements our existing line of case packers and palletizers,” says Schneider president, Richard Schneider. “S&R’s random case sealing technology enables us to provide a broader set of packaging equipment solutions to a wider market.”

Combining forces to create one team, the Olyphant facility will continue operations as before except S&R Machinery clients will enjoy the benefits of having access to Schneider’s comprehensive customer service and support team.

S&R Machinery is a leading manufacturer of case sealing machinery for the packaging industry. Products range from the premier series, SR5000 high speed fully automatic random case sealer (available in both pressure sensitive tape and hot melt glue models) to the simplicity of the SR3000 series automatic uniform case sealer. 

Schneider manufactures a complete line of case erectors and sealers, case packers, tray packers, specialty cartoning systems, robotic palletizing and completely integrated packaging solutions.  Schneider is FANUC Robotics largest integrator for palletizing and case packing in North America.  Additionally, Schneider offers a variety of ancillary equipment such as case erectors, cartoners, conveyors, pallet dispensers, shuttle cars, automatic guided carts, and elevators that can easily be integrated with coding/labeling equipment, RFID / barcode scanners, weight checking, and stretch or shrink wrapping equipment to provide a complete turnkey system solution.  Some specialty markets include food, beverage, industrial, tissue, paper, personal care, pharmaceutical, and replication industries.
