Wayne Automation Corporation, a privately held corporation, started building innovative, quality packaging machinery in 1976. The company’s principles came from a background in the design and manufacture of paper converting machinery. Recognizing the trends of the packaging industry at the time, the company began by building machines to automate the assembly and insertion of partitions along with automatic case erectors and tray formers.
Due to the rugged construction and reliable performance of the Wayne equipment, our systems became a popular choice in the glass and plastic container industry where 24/7 operation demanded our caliber of equipment. Recognizing that manufacturers buying their containers in bulk and those not using containers also needed the same quality of machinery, Wayne began designing and building packaging solutions for companies from food and beverage to chemical and petroleum to household and personal care products.
Through this outgrowth, Wayne’s packaging technology became some of the most innovative in the industry, and that creativity continues today. We offer the highest speeds in case erecting. We are the premier supplier of partition handling equipment and offer capabilities beyond any other machinery on the market. We have taken this technology to greater heights by offering case and tray packing systems which incorporate the insertion of partitions around containers positioned on the wraparound, case, or tray. And our tray formers accommodate more tray styles than any other manufacturer.
Always staying true to our commitment to providing our customers with reliable packaging machinery, our use of advanced electronics make each system a “smart” machine. Operators can easily communicate with the equipment while built-in sensors provide valuable feedback throughout the packaging process.
Wayne Automation Corporation is located outside Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, approximately three miles from the historic Valley Forge Park. The facility is an easy 40 minute commute from the Philadelphia International Airport.
