70 years of experience
In 1948, Omori’s founder, Mr. Shozo Omori, built his first small machine in his garage. This turned out to be the start of the introduction of many new machines and innovative technologies on the market. Particularly the production of state-of-the-art stretch wrappers and flow packers for the food sector and the pharmaceutical industry incorporated and developed into Omori’s main specialism.
On Thursday 18 June 2015, Omori Machinery Co. Ltd signed a strategic collaboration agreement with Oldenzaal-based Selo.
The move by Omori (Japan) to become a joint shareholder in Selo intensified the partnership established back in 1980.
Selo previously represented the Omori brand, and sold the company’s horizontal flow packers, so establishing Omori Europe B.V. was the next logical step. The objectives included further expanding the globalisation strategy of Omori Japan and becoming a global market leader in flow packers. After 3 years down the line, both Selo and Omori Europe B.V. (located at the same address) had grown considerably.
As a result, a decision was made to focus on further specialising both companies. Selo (supplier of process equipment) moved to another building in nearby town Hengelo and Omori Europe remained in Oldenzaal. The existing building has a completely new look, which is consistent with the image of the organisation. The company expanded its range of packaging machines such as standpouch equipment, teabag equipment, stickpacker etc. and fully exploited its extensive knowledge in the process.
