In 1998, SWF acquired Padlocker (an ITW Company), adding Padlocker’s well-respected, high-speed case erectors and random sealers to its product offering.

The Padlocker line, with a history dating back to 1953, allowed SWF to expand its RSC corrugated product offerings.

Then, in January  2007,  Thiele Technologies acquired SWF Companies, a world leader in the design and manufacture of automated packaging machinery.
