19.11.2018 Arodo celebrates 30th anniversary

Arodo, Arendonk, Belgium, this month celebrates its 30th birthday. What began as an experiment by two enterprising colleagues in a domestic garage, has grown to become an international packaging specialist with more than 100 employees. The company has been building customer-specific packaging solutions such as bag filling machines, vacuum stations, palletizers, stretch-hooders and total packaging lines serving a wide range of industries for three decades.

With sales offices in Germany and Denmark, a joint-venture in India and agencies in various European countries including Poland, Austria, Turkey and Romania, Arodo has achieved a great deal over the past 30 years. “It is mainly thanks to our employees”, said current director Marianne Fiers. “They help us to stay in pole position every day, while offering our customers the best possible service for their packaging lines.”

Former owner Henk Mariën, who died in February of last year (see EBS News for week of 27 February 2017) laid the foundations for constant growth. Arodo has a strong R&D department conceiving pioneering developments within its field of specialisation such as the unique AROVAC vacuuming system. The company has also embraced Industry 4.0, further digitisation and automation in machine building. The team constantly keeps its expertise up to scratch, while endeavouring to offer increasingly cost-effective packaging solutions. Customers from 30 years ago are often still customers today.
