Automated Packaging Systems Acquires Ergocon Solutions, Adds Textile Inspection And Packaging To Its Product Line

STREETSBORO, Ohio — March 2, 2016 — Automated Packaging Systems, a producer of high-reliability bagging systems, is pleased to announce the acquisition of Ergocon Solutions, a provider of ergonomically considerate textile packaging solutions. Ergocon is an innovator in designing and manufacturing automated textile inspection and packaging systems for professional laundry applications that include bar, shop, utility and microfiber towels, plus washcloths, pillow slips, gloves, mops and more. With this company acquisition, Automated Packaging Systems expands and improves its product line for the industrial laundry segment, and supports its customers with the largest field service network in the industry.
