We make sure final-packaging
processes are successful

We plan turnkey lines across all industries and, as an engineering service provider, advise both medium-sized companies and international groups on all aspects of final packaging and related processes. Our Schubert-Pharma unit specialises in designing and implementing packaging machines and complete lines for the pharmaceutical industry.


Schubert Packaging Systems was established in 1972 (at the time, under the International Packaging Systems name) as the sales company for Gerhard Schubert GmbH packaging machines. At that time the company was responsible for all international markets worldwide. Since the mid-eighties we have evolved into a supplier of turnkey solutions. Today we are active in three areas: Turnkey lines, consulting and pharmaceuticals.


We have been developing creative and interdisciplinary solutions for more than 45 years and have implemented close to 1,500 packaging solutions during this time.
