You’ve got a product people want. You produce a lot of it; in fact, your production runs around the clock, most likely even on weekends. But do you have enough hands to set up boxes, pack, seal and stack them into trucks to go out the door in time?
When manual labor is in short supply, too unreliable, too expensive or too slow for your products to get to your customers, Pearson Packaging Systems is your answer. We are your one-stop-shop to automate and optimize your entire end-of-line packaging process.
With a product in high-demand, optimizing and automating the packing process is unavoidable. However, while automation paybacks are extensive, the investment isn’t a small one either. So you want to be sure that after all is said and done, your production is meeting goals, operators are comfortably using and maintaining the equipment, total cost of ownership is minimal, and the “just-in-case” service support is reliable, quick and competent. You want a partner you can rely on.
Please Meet Pearson
In over 65 years, we deployed over 21,000 machines worldwide. And with almost 30 years of robotic integration under our belt, your secondary packaging project is in expert hands. Expertise that expands beyond machine design, build and service. Dedicated, experienced resources also support you in project management, system design and integration, parts and machine upgrades or modifications.
Different customers have different needs, but ours have one thing in common. They are high-volume manufacturers in multi-shift environments where line uptime is a critical requirement to meet production throughput goals. From machine build to line design and supplementary services, Pearson has optimized its automation products and services around the demanding requirements of 24/7, high volume operations.
There are equipment manufacturers, integrators, engineering firms, and consultants – all specialists in their chosen field. However, when it comes to end-of-line automation, you only need one source – Pearson Packaging Systems. If your products are top loaded, we are your single source provider for all secondary packaging needs, from individual equipment to fully integrated systems. We help you choose the right equipment, configure efficient layouts, recommend and source desired third party add-ons, manage your project to completion and provide service and assistance to keep things running smoothly.
Short Lead Times
You worked hard to get your project approved, now the clock is ticking. Whether allocated packaging automation budgets need to be spent by a particular fiscal point or products have to roll off the production line in time to meet contractual agreements – we understand and support you. Our turn-around times are industry leading with some core equipment being shipped in as little as 30 days. This also means that your down payments won’t be tied up in long build cycles.
No matter how great your purchase experience is, what really matters is what happens if the packaging equipment fails to perform as expected. In that case, count on our extensive service organization with technicians at or near most major metropolitan areas. We are also committed to a timely solution, which means that if we cannot resolve a performance issue in the first service visit, we will return with an engineer to collaboratively find or design a successful fix. As one of only a handful of FANUC Certified Service Providers, we also have several technicians and engineers qualified to troubleshoot Fanuc robots on our own.
Follow our path to becoming the industry’s most comprehensive, integrated single source provider of top-loaded secondary packaging automation solutions – from individual equipment to integrated systems.
First Automated 6-Pack Carrier Erector
R. A. “Lefty” Pearson, Bottle Shop Superintendent for Spokane’s Bohemian Brewery, invents the first automated 6-Pack Carrier Erector at home in his garage. The R. A. Pearson Company is born.
A Growing Operation
The R. A. Pearson Company moves its operations to the West Plains of Spokane to a newly built 60,000 square foot facility.
Expansion Once Again
The Spokane-based manufacturing facility expands to 110,000 square feet, its current size today.
A Strategic Shift
Pearson embarks on a strategic shift from exclusively building machines to providing complete end-of-line solutions. Reinforced by the name change from R.A. Pearson to Pearson Packaging Systems, the new strategic focus positions the company for consistent growth above market rates.
The implementation of lean manufacturing practices supports a renewed focus on improving quality, increasing value, and reducing lead times for customers.
First Integration of Industrial Robotic Systems
Pearson begins offering robotic systems, with the first RTLMX robot being delivered before the year’s end.
Expanding Loading Capabilities
Pearson acquires Goodman Packaging Equipment, which provides the company with advanced product handling and Gantry Top Load Case packing expertise.
The Portfolio Continues to Grow
The acquisition of Moen Industries adds Bliss and Tray Forming technology to the company’s portfolio, making Pearson the provider of the industry’s most complete line of secondary packaging solutions.
Formation of Pearson Systems Solutions Group
To support the growing demand for complex turnkey systems, Pearson forms a dedicated group with integration experts – the Pearson Systems Solutions Group.
As the demand for robotic solutions expands quickly, Pearson acquires Flexicell, adding 25 years of robotic integration experience and a much needed east-coast manufacturing location.
