BW Packaging Systems—the packaging machinery arm of Barry-Wehmiller, recently augmented its investment in the Russian packaging market by establishing Moscow-based sales, parts, and field service teams to better serve both new and existing Russian customers.
The packaging equipment platform has brought together eight Russian packaging industry veterans, each with almost two decades of experience. Together, they are solely focused on the Russian market, with an office in Moscow that has dedicated customer service support and field service technicians, along with spare parts and aftermarket inventory. In July 2019, the team also launched its website, www.bwpackagingsystems.com/ru, which provides detailed information on BW Packaging Systems Russia.
“The flexible packaging and rigid filling solutions that BW Packaging Systems offers for the Russian market are far-reaching. With this dedicated location and team, we will ensure our customers have access to this technology and the unmatched service that accompanies it,” said Arkady Melititsky, general director at BW Packaging Systems Russia.
In October 2019, the BW Packaging Systems Russia team will showcase the BW Flexible Systems Schib CO50 inverted horizontal flow-wrapper at Agroprodmash, held in Moscow.
