Asset Renewal Program
At SWF Companies, our objective is to be the “Supplier of Choice”. We focus on customer satisfaction by delivering quality products, on- time, to customer specifications.
While their products may be different, leading manufacturers and marketers of consumer and industrial goods share many common expectations from their suppliers. Shorter cycle times, lower cost, innovative engineering and technology, speed to market and flexibility are all key expectations of our customers and rightfully so. Our job is to position our products, deliver our service and organize our business to help meet these expectations.
We believe that Customer Satisfaction is achieved by focusing on three specific core competencies that form SWF’s “Triangle of Success”. Dedication to continuous improvement in these three elements - Advanced Engineering Concepts, Superior Customer Support and Agile Manufacturing – have helped position SWF Companies as a leader within the packaging machinery industry today and will further improve our service to customers in the years ahead.
SWF equipment is built to last, and can often be rebuilt, upgraded and/or converted to meet the challenges of today’s packaging applications. If your capital plans include sourcing new equipment to replace an aging SWF machine, consider the potential capital savings that can be afforded by SWF’s Asset Renewal Program (ARP).
Automation Solutions Group
The Automation Solutions Group (ASG) is a solution resource for all companies looking for assistance with packaging line integration.

It also entails cost reduction through design, parametric modeling and lean initiatives.

Furthermore, enhanced product design, machining and assembly are also part of agile manufacturing, supported by our investment in leading manufacturing technologies such as laser cutting, CNC break and CNC milling. These investments help us reduce part cost and quantity to simplify manufacturing, assembly and support of our products.
