The Autobag equipment is excellent and problem-free. The machines never seem to go wrong and we haven't experienced damage to the product in transit. Cost was the most important factor. Cardboard and vacuforms had become expensive and APS provided a solution, which has allowed us to make the substantial savings in terms of material costs that we required. We're now using the machines and the Autobag bags for other items such as hand lotions and tubes of creams. ~ N.M. Project Engineer
