Ideal-Pak® History

The story of Ideal-Pak® Incorporated and the Ideal-Pak® brand dates back more than sixty years, when the original Ideal Manufacturing and Sales Corp. was founded In 1949. From the early days as a manufacturer of custom machinery, to their transition to creating liquid filling machines and packaging line solutions, Ideal-Pak® Incorporated grew through innovation, experience, and knowledgeable engineering staff.

The Ideal-Pak® Incorporated mission is to create high performance customized equipment that met the exact needs of their customers. It was not long before high technology controllers, patented functionality, and expanded options for increased capabilities became part of Ideal’s automated liquid filling and packaging solutions.

The Ideal-Pak® line of liquid filling machines has emerged to become a quality name in the international paints and coatings, chemicals, lubricants, and food and beverage industries. Ideal-Pak® Filling & Packaging Line Solutions enable mid-size companies to Fortune 500 brands to automate their operations and increase productivity.
