Our Journey

Seeking to apply decades of experience to the design and manufacturing of custom automation systems, our parent company, Engenesys, was formed by our founders in 2009. While successfully developing custom equipment for large CPG customers including Frito Lay, Proctor and Gamble, and Kraft Foods, Engenesys forged a reputation for providing “simple solutions to complex problems.”

Drawing on the company’s successful experience with a variety of custom automation applications, AutoboxPac was established to specifically focus on and serve a rapidly developing segment of business — automated box packing. Our team combines standard equipment with innovative product handling solutions to provide customers with the most cost-effective approach to automating box packing operations. The result is predictable production output and a strong return on investment.
