ProMach, Covington, Ky., announced the formation of ProMach Filling Systems, a multiple-brand business providing filling technologies for applications ranging from free-flowing liquids to highly viscous products. The company said a seasoned management team oversees the investment in engineering, manufacturing, technical support and aftermarket parts — developing the optimum infrastructure for expanding global sales of filling solutions under the Federal and Pacific brands.

Federal brand fillers are for free-flowing liquids while Pacific fillers are rotary-volumetric fillers for viscous products and products requiring two-stage or bottom-up filling, the company said. Pacific branded products also include rotary-mass-flow, mag-flow and inline-volumetric fillers.

The company said the senior management team for the Federal brand now has responsibility for both the Federal and Pacific brands. Mark Vanzant was named vice president and general manager of ProMach Filling Systems; Cezar Mroz was named director of engineering; and Paul Kearney was named vice president of sales.

ProMach Filling Systems operates manufacturing and assembly facilities in Waukesha, Wis., and Corona, Calif. Both facilities provide aftermarket support, including parts and technical field service, the company said.

The company said a cross-trained regionally based sales force will significantly expand the reach of both brands through increased customer contact and customer communications. Federal and Pacific field service technicians are also being cross-trained on the systems of both brands to expand availability of skilled technical support.
