Packaging Solutions for the Agricultural Industry

FROMM Packaging Australia has decades of experience in designing and manufacturing a wide variety of packaging tools and machines for the baling and agricultural industry. Our world-renowned equipment is expertly designed to unitise and palletise products such as; hay, cotton, fibres & cloth for secure transport.

Our success is based on our vertical integration and the technical expertise and vast experience of our staff gained over our 45 years of trading in Australia and 70 years globally. FROMM Australia has provided packaging solutions to a range of notable baling companies including: Gilmac Hay, AWH, Queensland Cotton and Auscott Limited.

Baling requires unique expertise. Bale weight, stored energy and expansion after processing must all be considered when designing a solution. In extreme cases bales can literally explode if incorrectly strapped causing danger to employees or damage and unloading problems if being shipped.

Our experience has ensured we understand the importance of using the correct combination of strap and wrap with the right system. 

FROMM has installed hundreds of automatic in-line strapping heads and complete baling systems around the world for the hay and cotton industry. When used in conjunction with the FROMM High Performance Polyester Strap, your bales will be strapped with unparalleled safety & efficiency.

FROMM’s PET strap is so reliable, that when used with our brand new P331 tool (the world’s most powerful battery strapping tool) you can completely replace steel strapping resulting in massive cost savings for any sized business.

Our focus is to assist you to get your products to market as simply and cost effectively as practical. To this end we have developed the FROMM Advantage in partnership with Sydney University. This unique independent service allows the simulation of the g-forces of an accident, and the testing of packaging materials to this and the manufacturers claimed tolerances.

In an industry with challenging heavy-duty applications you need the absolute best quality products, tools & machines. We work in partnership with you to understand your processes and design packaging solutions that meet your requirements.

Each application presents a different challenge and we can call on our complete range of technologies such as label applicators, bearer systems and corner protectors to integrate with the strapping or wrapping system.

This is complimented by our range of manual products, such as hand strapping tools, to meet the requirements of your product range.
