Founder: Fred E Lins

In 1921 Fred E Lins invented a more efficient way to tie sausage links and leveraged his invention to start a revolutionary new packaging company. Fred’s never ending drive for continuous improvement and efficiency is what still motivates us today.  Our passion for creating alternative sustainable packaging solutions gives our customers a competitive advantage. 


From Tying Technology to Sustainable Packaging Solutions


In addition to the tying technology that Fred started over 90 years ago, we offer

  • Paper and plastic banders that seal with heat or ultra-sonic technology
  • Automatic rubber banding machines
  • Shrink wrap solutions
  • Strapping machines
  • Stretch film solutions
  • And, of course, our tying solutions


These solutions range from easy-to-use table top units to fully automated and custom engineered, high speed systems.  Our application experts consult with customers to bring them the best solution for their needs.

Our bundling solutions use less packaging material and less space than traditional packaging methods and help reduce labor costs.


Our products were green 90 years ago.  That’s why we have been around so long and why our customers look to us for solutions that help them succeed as well.


We work with many of the Global Fortune 500 and Fortune 100 giants across a variety of industries.  Packaging and advertising have changed over the years, but through it all, companies need to safely transport their products inside their premises and to the market while keeping the package secure.

Today, we are still located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and have a global reach.  Learn more by reading our sustainability page and visiting our products and industry pages on this site.
