Why EPIC Packaging Systems?
We are experienced in making the packaging process for bottle filling companies more efficient. From high-speed, fully automated bottle filling lines to low cost manual packaging lines, we can suggest pointed improvements that quickly improve your bottling process. Due to the complexity of most packaging lines, EPIC breaks down manufacturing goals and line design in the first meeting with each client. This helps pinpoint the most cost effective approach to deliver solutions that meet production goals, budget and timeline.
The first step to this process is an up-front meeting with the customer to understand their project. This meeting includes several EPIC engineers with years of experience in the packaging field. Based on this meeting, a Front-End Engineering study is outlined. The study provides the customer a clear path forward that includes: initial layout, a firm budget, project timeline, defined scope of work and major equipment specifications.
