“EPIC did a great job on the bag filling line project. EPIC’s project manager was very focused on customer service and also provided great technical skills for the project. There are many areas where EPIC’s project manager was able to add value, for example the diagnostics for the bag rejection system so the operator could determine reasons for rejection. I even dumped a few things on him last minute, like panel design, and the quality of work was still very good.” – Gerard R., Senior PM, Fortune 500 Pet Care Products Company

Why EPIC Bag Filling Systems?
We work with you to design your equipment layout, and engineer the maximum reliable line rate for your product. Whether you are upgrading, relocating, restructuring or adding a new technology to your packaging line, EPIC can provide value add as an experienced integrator in a variety of industries. We also help manufacturers reduce their products, condense formulas, provide more environmentally friendly solutions and integrating re-seal-able packaging for the consumer. Each filling system performs to the customer’s required specification with a vertical start-up in the field.
The first step to our process is an upfront meeting with the customer to understand their project. Based on this meeting a Front End Engineering (FEE) study begins, providing the customer a clear path forward. The FEE includes initial layout, a firm budget, project timeline, defined scope of work, and major equipment specifications.
