Packaging leader J.L. Lennard has merged its New Zealand packaging machinery business with Tech-Pack in a bid to create a stronger competitor in The Shaky Isles.

A company representing world-leading brands in packaging machinery, J.L. Lennard, has merged its packaging machinery division in New Zealand with Tech-Pack (NZ), a well-established supplier of filling and packaging machinery.

The new business – J.L Lennard Packaging, a division of the Australasian network of J.L. Lennard Limited –  will extend the long-held customer service philosophies of both companies, specializing in the efficient execution of contracts ranging from the supply of single machines through to the design, supply and installation of complete packaging lines on a turnkey basis.

Leadership of the new business will continue under Mr Phil Lea, says the managing director of J.L. Lennard Ltd, Mr David Boekemann.

“Phil has spent over 30 years in the packaging industry in NZ, with particular expertise in the plastics and materials area and with a strong background and understanding of machinery to assist our customers with their requirements,” he says.

Customers will also gain the full backing of the Australasian network of J.L. Lennard, which is one of Australia’s leading suppliers of packaging machinery and food service equipment through offices in five states.

J.L. Lennard is one of Australasia’s oldest companies and an established leader in its field known for its tradition of strong, open relationships in dealings with customers, suppliers and staff. J.L. Lennard Packaging will represent some of the world’s leading names in packaging machinery including: Rovema, Multipond, Fawema, Stephan, Hunter Filling Systems, Thermo Scientific, and Strapack.

“Offering access to a very broad and complementary range of brands available from one supplier, J.L. Lennard Packaging will be at the edge of innovation. Our ranges of advanced, cost-efficient and environmentally sustainable packaging solutions are backed nationally by our strong Australasian service and support network,” said Mr Boekemann.
