“By bringing Hema and Synerlink together, we can leverage our local talent and product lines to strengthen our position as a trusted partner and leader in rigid, eco-friendly packaging solutions for the food industry, offering a broader range of filling equipment, including both rotary and inline solutions,” said François Truffier, Synerlink President. “Hema brings proven technology with a wide range of filling machines—for plastic, glass and metal containers—operating at speeds up to 40,000 containers per hour.”

In addition to its technology, Hema brings 80-plus years of experience in several key markets, including liquid dairy products, edible oils, sweetened products, canned meats and sauces, dressings and condiments, which will broaden Synerlink’s reach in these strategic segments. Over the years, Hema has installed more than 3,500 machines that fill bottles, jars and cans across 100 countries. Moving forward, Hema’s filling expertise will be leveraged to expand Synerlink’s offerings for existing food and beverage customers, and to deliver innovative and sustainable packaging solutions for the global food market. “Although Hema is now part of the Synerlink organization, the Hema team will continue to work collaboratively with PSA’s thriving filling business and with each of our other divisions to continue our long-standing commitment to bringing integrated packaging solutions to our customers,” said Carol O’Neill, Barry-Wehmiller Group President, Packaging.

Hema originally joined the Barry-Wehmiller organization in 2015 when it was acquired by PSA, a global leader in packaging machinery for liquid- and dry-filling, capping, can-seaming and labeling applications. Since then, Hema has operated under PSA, augmenting its filling capabilities, and allowing BW Packaging Systems to expand its presence as a global leader in filling and closing technology. Today, PSA continues its long history of developing innovative filling and seaming solutions from its Akron, Ohio, facility, and will continue to support its growing customer base with new equipment and aftermarket services. In addition, the division will maintain its support of the installed base of rotary filling machines for both Hema and PSA product lines.
