Shemesh concludes its 7th consecutive successful PPMA Show in the UK!

Shemesh Automation enjoyed its 7th straight successful year at the PPMA Total Show at the NEC in Birmingham this year, showcasing its world leading expertise in viscous liquids, powders and solids filling, sealing, capping, labelling and a-z packaging lines to the UK market.

Hosting at stand D30, Shemesh unveiled ‘Valextra’ for the first time to PPMA audiences. One of Shemesh’s most advanced high-speed Snap-On cappers with outputs up to 200ppm, Valextra was specifically designed to accurately, consistently and fully automatically apply round, oval and other shaped Snap-On lids on similar shaped containers with multiple orientations.

Shai Shemesh, CEO, says –

“Perfected over decades of continuous improvement with over 50 models sold globally, VALEXTRA has the classic Shemesh DNA: consistency in production, accuracy, pragmatism, attention to details and robustness. It is a genuinely made-to-last capper of the highest standards in the industry.”

The Valextra model presented at the show was of a machine already sold to Unilever, a Shemesh Automation customer. It received some very positive feedback as highlighted during our PPMA Live interview with Shemesh Automation’s Marketing Director, Jennifer Kennedy.

Shemesh Automation, a proud PPMA member for the last seven years in a row, made a strategic decision back in 2013 to focus on the UK market, a decision that’s been firmly executed since – Brexit or no Brexit. To date, Shemesh supports about 100 machines across the UK with a team of dedicated sales, after sales, marketing and even the CEO himself is based out of London and alternates between Israel, the UK, France and the US – Shemesh’s four main markets to date.

As always, it was a fantastic opportunity to reconnect during this year’s PPMA Total show with existing customers & new prospects. If you did not get chance to visit us at the stand, please email at to find out more on how our range of product portfolio can add value to your organisation.
