Heat Seal History

Heat Seal was founded in Cleveland, Ohio in 1950 as a stretch wrapping machinery and related products manufacturer.  Heat Seal's commitment to quality and innovation allowed the company to fast become a major machinery supplier for the supermarket industry. The continued success of Heat Seal in this market enabled the company to innovate and develop machines for different packaging methods.

In the late 1980's, Heat Seal directed its packaging machinery expertise toward the Shrink Packaging industry. Heat Seal applied the same winning formula of quality and innovation to Shrink Packaging. Quickly, Heat Seal became a major producer of manual and semi-automatic L Sealers and Shrink Tunnels, as well as Combination Shrink Systems.

In 1994, Heat Seal purchased Ampak, a leading manufacturer of Skin Packaging machinery and related products. This acquisition allowed Heat Seal to bypass years of product development and immediately become a full line industrial packaging machinery source.

AMPAK was founded in Cleveland, Ohio in 1966 as the original manufacturer of Skin packaging machinery and vertical bagger machinery. To this day, Ampak skin packaging and vertical baggers set the standard of quality and value in the industry.

Heat Seal and Ampak are a quality manufacturing source for packaging machinery in a multitude of packaging methods.  Since the acquisition, both companies have expanded and improved their existing product lines.  All product lines now offer many standard features, multiple sizes and a list of options second to none in the industry.

Over the last several years, Heat Seal has continued to innovate its packaging product.   A new line of Heavy Duty L Bar Sealers, Heavy Duty Shrink Tunnels and Heavy Duty Combo Systems have been designed to complement its current line and offer a full line of features.  Semi-Automatic and Automatic Bundlers have been developed to offer our customers more packaging options for bundling products manually or automatic.  For speed requirements in the shrink industry, our Automatic L Sealer and Shrink Tunnel Combo System has been introduced to help packagers take a step toward packaging automation.  

Heat Seal's latest innovation is the Energy Smart® Wrapper is a stretch film overwrapper with on demand sealing technology.  The new wrapper provides significant energy conservation, compared to old style stretch film overwrappers. 

Heat Seal introduced their all new HDX Combination Shrink Systems for their industrial segment.  The HDX machine have been designed from the ground up with all new features.  In this segment, the HSE Express is also brand new.

NGA National Grocers Association   

NGA - The National Grocers Association (NGA) is the national trade association representing the retail and wholesale grocers that comprise the independent sector of the food distribution industry.  Also represented are affiliated associations, manufacturers, and service suppliers, as well as other entrepreneurial companies that support NGA's Mission and Philosophy. The meaning of “independent retailer” is more a question of ownership and philosophy of operation, rather than number of stores or type of format. An independent retailer is a privately owned or controlled food retail company operating a variety of formats. A few are publicly traded, but with controlling shares held by the family, and others are employee owned. Independents are the true “entrepreneurs” of the grocery/food industry and are dedicated to their customers, associates, and communities.
