Two Companies with Similar Beginnings
In the early 1900s two packaging companies emerged upon the Minneapolis packaging supplier industry - Hamer and Fischbein. Both companies developed their own solutions to closing industrial product bags that were prevalent during this time. Some of these products include flour, potatoes, and packaged ice. In these early years, Fischbein developed and perfected its bag sewing technology; and Hamer its practical Ring bag closer.
Now almost 100 years later, brought together under the Duravant family of operating companies, the two companies merged to form one vibrant company, called Hamer-Fischbein. This new dynamic company offers a full line of bag filling, closing, automated bagging and palletizing equipment targeted to industrial bagging customers.
Hamer-Fischbein designs and manufactures bagging equipment and packaging solutions under the Hamer and Fischbein brands. These trusted brands combine almost 200 years of industrial bag closing and automated packaging experience to improve packaging line efficiency and profitability.
Hamer-Fischbein is the worldwide leader in Bagging Automation, Bag Filling, Bag Top Closing equipment and turnkey bagging automation systems. The portfolio includes the widest product range of weighing, filling and bag closing technologies; manual, semi- and fully automatic bagging systems; form fill seal bagging automation; conveyors; and robotic bag palletizers.
