From December 2023, German packaging OEM manufacturer SOMIC is expanding its sales, after-sales and engineering expertise covering the South-East Asian markets from its newly founded subsidiary SOMIC Packaging Asia Pacific Co. Ltd. in Bangkok, Thailand.
Somic known for their end-of-line machinery for secondary and tertiary packaging, has built up an excellent reputation in Europe and the USA over the course of the company’s almost 50-year history. More than 500 employees worldwide form the basis for the company’s success and continued growth. SOMIC machines provide users in the food, non-food, cosmetics, and pet-food industries with maximum safety for the packaged products and maximum cost-effectiveness.
Customers worldwide value SOMIC’s portfolio for its integrated machine design, which handles all work steps in a single machine, from carton infeed to product grouping to carton sealing. At INTERPACK 2023 in Düsseldorf, SOMIC received particular attention for the new SOMIC 434 machine generation.

SOMIC’s 434 wrap-around packing machine will be available for viewing and demonstrations in the new showroom in Thailand. The sales and service team will look after all customers in the Southeast Asian region from Bangkok. “We can name numerous projects of well-known large corporations as references. These global players operate internationally and naturally demand great efficiency in packaging processes for their production sites in the Asian region,” explains Patrick Bonetsmüller, Managing Director of SOMIC. Similar to Asia, SOMIC has been using its own sales and service location, SOMIC Packaging Inc. in Eagan, Minnesota, USA, for the support of American customers for about 10 years.
