Syntegon’s Schiedam site celebrates anniversary and long heritage

The provider of horizontal flow wrappers, infeed and distribution systems, the business took up business as Tevopharm

In October, Syntegon Technology’s Dutch site turns 60.

The company was formed in the early 1960s. “We are proud of this long legacy,” Neil Fowell, General Manager at Syntegon in Schiedam, explains.

“Focusing on long-term economic success from the very beginning, we have continuously enhanced our portfolio according to our customers’ requirements. This desire to shape the future has set the company’s course from its very beginning – and will continue to do so as we continue to expand our products.”

To celebrate its 60th anniversary, and to express its gratitude towards its long-standing customers, the Schiedam site is offering offer a discount of up to 60 installation hours for every machine order placed between September 22 and December 22, 2020.

In its early days, Tevopharm focused on delivering “innovative, fast and reliable machines that offered a good return on investment”. The company was responsible for the development of a capsule filling machine for pharmaceutical manufacturers, which was followed by flow wrapped solutions in food for safe and smooth operations in the confectionery and baking industries.

During the 1980s and 1990s, having grown to more 250 employees, Tevopharm developed “Pack-1000” a servo-driven flow wrapper which packaged 1,000 products per minute.

“Integrating servo technology was a milestone that strengthened the company’s position as an expert for complete line solutions from oven to package,” Fowell states. The early 2000s brought forth “Pack- 2000”, a decidated solution for high-volume packaging, as well the acquisition by Bosch Packaging Technology, the predecessor of Syntegon, in 2003.

Operating today as Syntegon Packaging Technology since 2020, the Schiedam site today focuses mainly on highly flexible, modern horizontal food distribution and handling systems for customers around the globe. The portfolio includes standard upright flow wrappers as well as inverted wrappers and wrappers for hermetically tight sealing, as well as a wide range of matching infeed systems.
