At Formers International, we’ve spent the last 45 years at the leading edge of former technology. Our reputation and legacy has been hard fought, learned, and crafted over the years; starting when our small outfit made every former completely by hand – to our industry dominance today as the leader in domestic and international markets.
After almost half a century, we’ve built a family that continues to refine that process to build the most accurate, durable, and technologically innovative formers and accessories on the market. That foundation is steeped in the history of our people, who have formed their families, communities, and careers alongside our customers’ solutions.
We celebrate the men and women who make all of this possible, and their families who have joined us. We’re excited to relate our history, but most importantly, to look forward to the next 45.
Since 1975, Formers has led the industry by creating innovative technology in response to our customers’ needs. Our family of Lyte products employs patented engineering and design to weight optimize formers that are often 30-50% lighter than comparable bag formers.
Formers International’s patented EZ Align technology provides safe, precise, no-tool installation for any assembly that ships to our customers. EZ Align technology reduces assembly time and has been tested on the floors of industry-leading packaging facilities.
OUR ENGINEERING TEAM
Our engineering team has been at the core of every new development that we’ve brought to the market, and it is this team that supports our customers. With packaging equipment demands reaching global highs, the engineering team runs AutoCAD for design and SolidWorks to test former designs against simulated forces and environments prior to production, further ensuring speedy, reliable and flaw-free production. Additionally, in the event of an issue at your site, we have technical staff at the ready–often times able to deploy within 2 business days.
