History

Keymac Packaging Systems, also known as Keymac was founded in Keynsham, United Kingdom in 2005 by Mike Bradley and his father, Albert Bradley. Based on its humble beginnings in the town of Keynsham the Name ‘Keymac’ is derived from ’Keynsham Machinery’. Keymac still manufactures machines in Keynsham today.

Keymac developed its first automated machine — the K101 Autosleeve with its small foot print, and unique operation offering a purpose built solution that had not been previously available. Through this development concept, Keymac has gone from strength to strength, continually manufacturing and supplying clients all over the world. It is still expanding today with its unrivaled range of machinery.

In 2010 Keymac opened it’s new manufacturing facility in Charlotte, NC expanding the range to new markets in North and South America. This led to the further development of the range to meet higher speeds and include many new machines handling unique concepts in packaging that have not been automated before.

To meet the ever expanding and changing consumer market demands, Keymac has developed a comprehensive range of machinery that have become industry standards. This machine range provides solutions from simple innovative concepts to high tech robotics. We also assess your specific packaging requirements and apply a creative yet practical approach that results in increased business productivity.
