A N.J. – based snack and nut provider and a Montreal-based machinery supplier formed a lasting union after an initial meeting nearly 20 years ago.

When International Foodsource LLC, Dover, N.J., Owner and CEO David Lipson purchased his first VerTek 750 vertical form/fill/seal machine from WeighPack Systems Inc., Montreal and Las Vegas, for his snack and nut business, he did more than simply enter an agreement to buy WeighPack’s first bagging machine. That initial purchase started a business relationship that has seen his company grow into a 100,000 sq. ft. facility with 22 WeighPack machines. In less than 20 years, International Foodsource partnered with WeighPack, a complete system solution manufacturer of state of the art packaging machines to constantly strive to fufill Lipson’s maxim of “always moving forward.”
Louis Taraborelli, founder and CEO established WeighPack in 1992 after 18 years in the packaging machinery business.
