CMC Packaging Automation North America, a subsidiary of CMC Packaging Automation SpA, a leading supplier of fully automated right-sized packaging solutions and a proud partner of KKR’s Global Impact team, backed by Amazon’s Climate Pledge Fund, proudly announces the grand opening of its innovative, 30,000 sq. ft. Tech Center in Atlanta, Georgia. The inaugural event was held on March 12th, 2024, marking a significant milestone in CMC’s commitment to revolutionizing the packaging and automation industry in the US market.

Since its inception in 2013 with the launch of the first CMC CartonWrap machine, CMC North America has solidified its position as a leader in automated packaging solutions. With over 140+ machines installed nationwide and a dedicated team of 200 field engineers, CMC Packaging Automation North America serves a wide range of clients, including major retailers, e-commerce giants, 3PLs, and logistics companies. Through their innovative systems, the company has consistently assisted clients in enhancing efficiency, reducing costs, and increasing sustainability.

The new Tech Center in Atlanta is set to become a hub for experimentation, innovation, and collaborative discussions, not only for esteemed clients but also for technology partners. In an ever-evolving logistics landscape, CMC Packaging Automation is committed to staying ahead of the curve by developing innovative solutions and exploring materials that can further minimize environmental impacts.

“Our focus on the U.S. market is unwavering, and the Tech Center underscores our dedication to providing unparalleled support to our clients,” remarked Francesco Ponti, CEO of CMC. “By offering a platform for open dialogue and hands-on experience, we aim to empower our clients to overcome challenges and drive progress in their automation initiatives.”

During the Grand Opening event, guests were privy to exclusive demonstrations of the latest innovations, including the CMC CartonWrap Duo, a machine that leverages SKU dimensions and thicknesses to automatically package items in right-sized boxes or corrugated envelopes on demand, at a speed of 900 packages per hour. They were also given the opportunity to witness the enhanced CMC Paper-PRO, which automatically creates a ready-to-ship, right-sized paper bag with continuous induction at a speed of 3600 orders per hour. Both systems highlighted the cutting-edge technology and precision engineering that defines CMC’s solutions.

Additionally, attendees got a sneak peek at the CMC Genesys Combo demonstrated at MODEX with integrated Nexus. This constructive collaboration of technology is poised to set new benchmarks in packaging automation. The Genesys Combo seamlessly manages both single and multi-line orders without pre-consolidation within the same machine. When integrated with CMC Nexus, Genesys stands as the only fully automated right-sized packaging solution encompassing the pick, pack, and sorting processes.
