A legacy brand of Thiele Technologies, Salwasser was established in 1949 by Fred Salwasser and his sons, Mel and Les. The company initially manufactured a mechanical, automatic carton check-weigher as well as providing machinery service and repair. As markets and needs expanded, so did Salwasser's product offerings - extending to semi-automatic and then fully-automatic case loaders. In 2000, Salwasser was purchased by SWF Companies. "We are thrilled to introduce a new Salwasser case packer as part of our product line. They've always had an industry reputation as dependable and long-lasting machines," says Craig Friesen, Product Line Manager at Thiele. In 2007, Thiele Technologies acquired Reedley, CA based SWF Companies and proudly continues the tradition of quality equipment Salwasser started over 60 years ago.

"We're proud to continue the legacy of quality equipment started by Salwasser so many years ago," says Friesen. "We hope the customers who've always purchased Salwasser equipment continue to experience the same satisfaction they always have. Their ideas and designs are classic, but paired with new technology and updated ideas - we believe we've made them even better."
