Big Growth Year for AEK Leads to Relocation to Accommodate Larger Used Packaging Inventory and Showroom

by AaronEquipmentCo7. November 2016 09:10

It’s an exciting time at packaging industry leader Aaron Kendell Packaging Equipment. After a banner year of growth in 2016, AEK is relocating from Bensenville, Illinois to a standalone, state-of-the-art facility in Belvidere, Illinois, just west of Chicago, by January 1, 2017. The reasoning is simple: In two years, our footprint has tripled, and the value of our inventory jumped 25 percent from 2015 to 2016.




The relocation will not affect our relationship with Aaron Equipment Company, but it will benefit our customers by offering a much larger inventory of used packaging equipment in one space, along with a showroom and an area to cycle-test all equipment it buys. Customers will keep working with their same AEK sales associate throughout and after the relocation, so there will be no business disruption.


As part of our relocation, we’re partnering with Hilco Industrial to host an online auction of more than 175 pieces of packaging equipment from Nov. 10-17. Equipment available for bid includes shrink bundlers, cartoners, blister packaging machines, palletizers, and vertical form-fill-seal machines. To see the full lot of available equipment, visit Hilco’s website or call 847-504-3204. You can also learn more by visiting us at PACK EXPO International 2016 in booth S-2475.


If you don’t know AEK, you should. We’ve been in business since 2009 and grown to offer more than 60 types of used packaging equipment from more than 100 manufacturers, including cappers, fillers, labelers and wrappers.


We save customers time and lower the risk of buying, leasing or renting used packaging equipment, no matter where you’re located globally. AEK has been involved in thousands of packaging applications around the world, so our team is well aware of how important it is for customers to get equipment that simply works upon arrival.


And if you’re selling your packaging equipment, AEK makes it easy for you to do that. The easy-to-submit form on our website lets you describe your equipment, upload photos and submit an asking price. AEK will respond the same day to inquiries.
