where does the name felins come from?

Our founder's name was Fred E. Lins. We've considered changing our name but we've come to appreciate its uniqueness.


What does Felins do?

We provide six different packaging technologies - banding, tying, shrink film, stretch film, rubber banding and strapping. For each of these technologies, we sell the equipment, consumable packaging material, and parts.  We also provide application and technical service support for all of these technologies to our customers worldwide.


How did felins choose the 6 technologies they have?

We believe that every packaging decision should help, not hurt, our planet. We focus on packaging solutions that minimize the amount of packaging material needed and allow our customers to focus their labor on the upstream production processes.


Is Felins a manufacturer or distributor?

We're both. In some cases, we've found fantastic equipment already being produced and have worked to make those companies our suppliers. In others, we've developed equipment to fill a hole in the packaging market with our own equipment.


How long has felins been in business?

We were founded in 1921.


Does felins have a local representative in my area?

We have sales/service partners all over the world. Give us a call or send us an email and we will be happy to work through how we can best support your needs.


Given the unique nature of felins packaging solutions, how do I know if they will work for my products?

Making a change to your business is never easy. We work with our customers to ensure they can fully evaluate if we are a good fit for them. This includes processing their product samples on our equipment, working through shipping tests, equipment demos & rentals, operating leases, performance guarantees, etc.


How much does felins products & MACHINES cost?

Our focus is to provide each customer with the exact solution they need, not just an off-the-shelf packaging machine. When combined with the unique nature of our business, it can be difficult to publish exact pricing. What we CAN say is we offer everything from material at $5/roll to fully customized automation systems for upwards of six figures. Luckily, our packaging consultants can usually provide you with an estimate after just a few qualifying questions. 


Does felins provide FINANCING?

Felins offers financing options in the form of rentals or leases. Packaging equipment rentals are great for short term or project-based companies and can be set up for weekly or monthly payments. Packaging equipment leasing is also available and great for 2-3 year projects or long term. You get the benefit of having the packaging machinery right away while spreading out your payments over time! We have flexible financial solutions to meet the needs of our customers! When you contact us for a quotation, we can walk you through these options in detail. 



Why did Felins rebrand?

We've been in business since 1921. While our solutions and services have changed and improved since then, our old brand still looked like it was designed in the 20th century. We developed a new brand because we wanted to reflect the innovative, progressive company we've worked so hard to make Felins today. 

Ultimately, we wanted to better convey our true mission...

Sustainability is our passion. We're inspired to create innovative alternatives because every packaging decision should help, not hurt, our planet. 


What does the new logo represent?

That's open to interpretation! But, most of us view the four colorful lines in our new mark as a bundle moving to the right into a Felins bundling machine. The green and blue colors convey a natural, earthy feel to emphasize our passion for sustainability while the gray emulates how our equipment helps streamline your operations.


What does "Simplify. Solve. Sustain." mean? 

It means we're committed to developing packaging solutions that improve your operations. Solutions that simplify your processes, solve your problems and help sustain efficient, effective business processes with the least amount of packaging materials required. 


How does the Felins rebrand affect me?

We're still the same Felins as before, we just have a fresh, new look. As you can see, we've launched a new website and updated a lot of our materials. We hope you find these updates easier to use and can find the information you're looking for. If you're having problems or have questions, please let us know. 


Have Felins' products and services changed?

While we're always working on new, innovative packaging solutions, we will continue to offer the same great solutions you've always relied on. That means you'll still receive world-class customer service and support from our team throughout the lifetime of your Felins machinery.
