Company History

National Packaging Systems was established in 1983, as a manufacturer of Vertical form, fill and seal machines, Volumetric Fillers, Auger Fillers, Feeding Systems and Conveyors for the food and beverage industry. Our original range of hydraulically operated models was augmented in 1992 with our new generation machines using a belt drive pull down system. We now manufacture multiple types of machines IE: Form, fill and seal; Vertical sachet; Vertical stick pack and various customised machines. The machines are now pneumatic and are controlled via an inverter and PLC. Speeds of up to 60 - 100 packets per minute may be expected depending on product, weight, machine and packaging material.

Many improvements have taken place making user friendly packaging machinery with the minimum of maintenance and downtime. Our success has been proved by continued support of our existing clients and a sharp increase in sales to new ones.

Service & Backup Support

Our machines are designed and built in our factory in Durban, South Africa. Improvements are done on the machinery at all times to move with the times and technology. All electrical components are readily available from local suppliers. We fit Bonfiglioni motors and gearboxes, Siemens Electronics and Festo Pneumatics. All spares are readily available ex stock.
