Columbia/Okura Partners with Statec Binder

January 26, 2017

Columbia/Okura LLC, a leading provider of robotic palletizing solutions, announces the formation of a strategic alliance with Statec Binder, a high-performance packaging and palletizing supplier, specializing in highly efficient bagging solutions.    

This customer-focused alliance was initiated by each company’s desire to provide North American producers with end-to-end, fully automated bag line solutions from a single OEM provider.
The agreement combines Columbia/Okura’s robotic bag palletizing expertise with Statec Binder’s global experience and leadership with woven poly, FFS, multi-wall paper, and laminated paper/poly bag packaging technologies. The alliance positions Columbia/Okura to provide customers in North America with “single source supply” of high-performance open-mouth and form-fill-seal bagging and palletizing lines.
“Statec Binder is a leader in bag packaging technologies associated with free flowing materials and powders,” said Brian Hutton, president, Columbia/Okura LLC. “Our relationship will allow Columbia/Okura to provide our customers with premium quality, complete bagging line solutions from a U.S.-based OEM. Under this collaboration, we will be providing local sales and service support for the complete range of Statec Binder products.”
Okura Yusoki Company, Ltd, one of Columbia/Okura’s JV owners, established a relationship with Statec Binder in Europe years ago, when Statec Binder became a key integration partner for Okura’s line of dedicated palletizing robots for complete bagging line solutions for customer requirements around the world. The alliance in North America marks the next step in the progression of the companies’ collaboration.
