Packaging Equipment by HG Molenaar has been in partnership with Gernep for many years. We continue to represent Gernep’s mission in Southern Africa with the sales and support that distinguish customers for individual attention. It is the same attention that the people at Packaging Equipment continue to give and receive from Gernep itself.

Gernep provides quintessential quality and ease of use in a compact labeller particularly attractive to industries where space is at a premium. We cover the primary labelling technologies with Gernep systems. These include pressure sensitive, wet glue, and hot-melt for roll-fed and pre-cut labelling systems. You benefit from the compact design and steady production speeds that are the hallmark of this specialist engineering.

Gernep’s advanced closed loop glue method, with its unique spray system, allows the same labels that wrap products in the carbonated soft drinks (CSD) industry to create opportunities for new market segments to move to this technology. It presents a tremendous savings opportunity due to the economies of scale of this labelling material.

Hot glue applied to labels becomes an unsightly brown visible through clear containers. It deters consumers and eliminates hot glue as a suitable technology. Gernep’s closed loop glue system does not discolour the hot glue and does not require fume extraction typical of these systems.

These attributes have made Gernep the unquestioned option for producers who need quality equipment, compact design, and flexibility for market innovation.

Service with Distinction

HG Molenaar has been a family business since 1949. Our team in Packaging Equipment is the nucleus of a personal service to each and every customer. And that extends to the personal relationships we maintain with our suppliers.

We attend to customers with the expertise, care and attention necessary to make them the cardinal focus of continued service and operational support.

Consequently, the ethos behind our solutions is innovative design, robust quality, production efficiency, and tight-knit support. As a result we limit the extent of the principles that we represent. We choose to master our selected area of concern.

This is our elected strategy since it provides the opportunity to make substantial ongoing investments in skills and training. Our service personnel conduct extensive OEM training abroad. As part of that training, our technicians help to perform final assembly and setup on the systems at the manufacturer. That gives them in-depth exposure which lends them extremely high levels of skill on the specific equipment.
