A SUCCESSFUL PARTNERSHIP
Omega has several products in their line. The Omega AllPro S, Omega Magnus, Omega Allpro, Omega Bella and Phoenix Flame Sealer are all offered to meet 7/24 demands for peak productivity, minimum make ready and complete versatility in carton range and substrate. The majority of Omega gluers are installed in folding carton plant with the remaining installations in both commercial printing and corrugated operations.
Initially Duran Machinery contacted Can-Am Packaging Equipment to engage in engineering consultation services relative to the Omega gluer and shortly thereafter saw the numerous advantages of an alliance with our company due to our success in the industry relative to global sales and marketing efforts for folding carton and corrugated equipment.
It has a great deal to do with mutual respect. Both of our companies share mutual goals in the successes of our businesses and the quality of products we offer and support in the marketplace. In addition, our companies recognized the importance of strategic global alliances long before this became a widely accepted practice.
The company has an entire department devoted to the research and development of new designs and technology for the Omega product line, which in large part focuses on the folding carton industry. In addition, they are always prepared to quickly respond to customer’s requirements for special projects. They aim to implement the “ideal solution” in the most cost-effective manner without outsourcing or compromising quality.
There are many new innovations in engineering and technology planned for the future and there will be other products manufactured by Duran that Can-Am Packaging Equipment Corp. will present. I am not at liberty to disclose these developments at this time but I can assure you they will be welcomed in the marketplace.
They plan to exhibit new Omega AllPro-S 145 and Omega AllPro 70 folder-gluers (Hall 10 Stand E43). The Omega AllPro S Series is designed for the high-speed production of complex cartons with minimum change over time and easy operation. Along with the well-proven features of the Omega Allpro, the Allpro S Series features independently designed four and six corner, auto bottom and straight line folding units which allow shorter makeready times and more economical power consumption.
Reliability, durability, (frames are over one inch solid steel), ease of operation, minimum makeready, easy changeover, innovative design, advanced servo technology and Siemens controls to optimize productivity of all types of cartons and substrates.
The Omega AllPro110 Series. However, new orders for the Omega AllPro S may surpass this record.
We were the first company in the United States to offer 24/7 technical support at no charge. Our technicians are loyal to each and every one of our customers and we have a mission to support our customers under any and all circumstances
We provide installation and training programs to meet the individual demands of each company. For example, if a manufacturing operation has a third shift that can benefit from training, then we will schedule our technicians accordingly. In addition, we offer preventive maintenance programs to assist plants in troubleshooting potential problem areas before they ever occur. We have no geographic limits. We have completed Omega gluers installations in China, Australia, North and South and Central America and Mexico.
The company you are referring to has 12 Omega gluer that run 24/7 and have done so since the mid 1990’s. The balance of our clients on average own four of our machines, some of which are customized to meet manufacturing specifications—for example to run PET/PVC exclusively, or to run other special proprietary projects.
The current order time for Omega gluers is considerable as compared with past years. However, we are most pleased as we know this is a direct result of the success of our products in the marketplace and the customer support delivered to ensure the quality of our equipment over time.
Approximately one third of the machines installed is concentrated in North and South America. We anticipate strong growth in the upcoming quarters that will significantly increase Omega product distribution in North and South America.
Primary focus is on the folding carton industry. However, the company has several target markets for the future, one of which is the corrugated market – mainly because we see advantages that we can offer boxmakers – particular as regards gluer design and advanced technology.
The company founded with the capital investment in one machine. The profit from that one machine was used as an investment to fund this business.
Yes, that’s correct, and since its founding in 1986 the company has been a minority owned business (%100 female owned) and is certified by both WBENC (Women’s Business Enterprise National Council) and the NWBOC (National Women Business Owner’s Corporation).
