US-based ProMach, a packaging machinery solutions provider, has acquired fellow American Modern Packaging, a manufacturer of filling and sealing solutions for the food and dairy industries.

As per ProMach, the addition of Modern expands its capabilities into the filling of cups and trays to complement its existing solutions in filling free-flowing liquids, semi-viscous products, and viscous products into bottles and other rigid containers.

Modern designs, manufactures, and supports stainless steel equipment for filling, heat sealing, overcapping, loading, and denesting premade cups and trays as well as gas flush, HEPA, clean in place (CIP), and sterilization in place (SIP) systems.

“Modern expands our keystone filling capabilities, giving ProMach even more options to provide our customers where processing and packaging converge on the production line. Modern provides innovative solutions in key segments like the growing snack food market where SKUs continue to grow with better-for-you, single serve, meal replacement, and combination snacks gaining significant traction on both physical and online store shelves,” said Mark Anderson, ProMach president and CEO.

Modern solutions can fill containers from 5g to 5kg, at speeds nearing 1,000 containers per minute. It also provides foil lid converting capabilities through their PDF seal division that produces full color die cut lids for food packaging containers used in both single serve consumer and food service industries.

Modern co-founders, Syed (Zaki) Hossain and Jaroslaw (Jerry) Dabek, will continue leading the Modern team that includes over 100 employees, with Hossain serving as vice president and general manager and Dabek serving as vice president of engineering. ProMach said it will continue to invest in Modern’s New York-based facility, team, and operations to strengthen their product lineup and accelerate growth and support capabilities in key markets.
