What to consider when deciding on a new packaging machine and how STATEC BINDER could support you

When you are thinking of purchasing a new packaging machine, there are many other aspects to consider besides the budget and perhaps the available space for the new machine or packaging line. High quality, reliability, flexibility, durability as well as special characteristics in regards to your product could be considered. Delivery time, ease of operation and customer service can also be of great importance. Therefore a strong and reliable partner is required with whom you can build a long-term relationship.

There are many packaging machine manufacturers in the world and each of them has its strengths. The choice of a partner for your project is crucial as the new packaging machine will last for decades if properly maintained. Before choosing a supplier also think about your long-term goals and corporate strategy. The right machine should both meet your needs and support the growth of your business over the years. Therefore, also take into account that investing more money today could save you trouble at a later stage. Since the new packaging machine could last for decades, take a closer look at the customer service provided. Do they offer appropriate training for operation and maintenance teams and do they have a partner or office near you? Are they able to supply spare and wear parts for the next 20 years or even longer? These questions and others should be clarified prior to your decision for a supplier so that you can be sure not only to have the perfect packaging machine but above all to have found a strong partner who is able to support your company’s goals.
