In a significant stride towards fostering industry collaboration, Volm Companies, based in Antigo, Wisconsin, has taken center stage as one of the platinum sponsors for the National Onion Association Annual Winter Convention. The convention started Nov. 29 and will run through Dec. 2, 2023, at the Marriott Riverwalk in San Antonio, Texas, and marks Volm’s first-time sponsorship at the platinum level, underlining the company’s unwavering commitment to the onion industry.
As a National Onion Association (NOA) member for over two decades, Volm Companies has consistently demonstrated dedication to the association’s objectives. The company’s team members have actively engaged in NOA activities, a tradition they plan to uphold as they continue working toward the industry’s well-being.
One of the perks of Volm’s platinum sponsorship is the prominent display of their advertising on the hotel room keys and pocket schedules. Attendees will have an immersive experience at the reception, where the company’s new video will be showcased. This video, featuring the Volm brand segment language and highlighting key equipment products, is bound to captivate the audience.
Volm Companies will have a dedicated table outside the reception area, featuring informational materials and a monitor playing an in-depth video. This video will spotlight essential equipment products, with a particular focus on the Volmpack SemiPack and AutoPack baggers – crucial components in many onion sheds today.
The SemiPack Bagger, designed for paper, burlap, and net bags, can efficiently handle bags weighing up to 100 pounds. With an industrial sewing head, it automates the filling and closing of bags. Adding the Bag Placer transforms the SemiPack into a fully automated packaging machine, with regular and high-speed versions available.
The AutoPack, on the other hand, presents a comprehensive solution for bulk bag packing automation, accommodating weights from 25 to 100 pounds. The AutoPack High Speed version elevates efficiency further, reaching speeds of up to 20 bags per minute for 50-pound bags.
In addition to the baggers, Volm will showcase the Volmpack MD14XL weigher, renowned for its robust design and unparalleled quality. Equipped with 14 extra-large weighing buckets, this weigher boasts a packing range from 10 to 50 pounds at rates up to 40 bags per minute, providing a substantial boost to production in large pack types.
To complete the lineup, Volm will feature their Volmstack – a line of gantry-style palletizing solutions offering customers comprehensive equipment with the backing of exceptional service.
Management at Volm expressed enthusiasm for the NOA event, anticipating valuable customer interactions. The convention provides a unique opportunity for Volm to glean feedback on product quality, customer service, and overall customer experiences. This valuable information will be instrumental in refining existing products, introducing new ones, and enhancing services.
