Behind every meticulously handcrafted Wulftec machine are 180 highly skilled employees who work in a state-of-the-art, 161,000 square-foot facility located just minutes from the Canadian-U.S. border and 75 miles from Montreal. We take pride in knowing that our commitment to excellence just can't be beat.

We are highly focused. The 161,000 square-foot plant is solely dedicated to the design, development and manufacturing of quality stretch wrapping and strapping equipment. One room is dedicated to training, and a showroom is used to present our latest innovations. We take pride in providing tours to our distributors and customers, to show them the quality processes used to build and customize our quality machines and introduce them to our efficient team of dedicated welders, painters, assemblers and technicians.

A Commitment to Customer Satisfaction

In early 2002, Wulftec was acquired by M.J.Maillis Group, a leading Europe-based Group that designs, manufactures and distributes complete end-of-line packaging solutions, including strapping, stretch wrapping and shrink wrapping materials and equipment. Present in more than 52 countries worldwide, through a network of 28 owned Affiliate companies and more than 350 independent distributors, the Group's global resources have strengthened Wulftec's competitive advantage and ability to provide superior solutions to meet the individual needs of clients. Our strong entrepreneurial spirit dictates that if we haven't built it yet, we'll work with clients to build it now. This commitment to customer satisfaction goes well beyond equipment design. We also give equal attention to installation and operations training, after-sales service and maintenance.

Thanks to the can-do approach of Wulftec's sales and service departments, along with our extensive network of Wulftec distributors, it's easy for clients to benefit from the exceptional value, reliability and productivity that only Wulftec can offer.
