Offering a Broader Range of Global Stretch Packaging Solutions

Arlington Heights, IL (June 13, 2012) – Muller has announced its new company structure to provide customers with access to a broader range of solutions for wrapping pallets.  Previously operated as independent business units of Illinois Tool Works (ITW), GaleWrap and Yellow Jacket will now operate as part of the Muller family of products.  Muller will now offer the high quality GaleWrap Oriented hand films and innovative Oriented Equipment.  Along with GaleWrap, Muller will market the Yellow Jacket brand of orbital stretch wrappers. These products will complement the superior stretch wrap film and equipment that Muller has traditionally been know for and will continue to offer.

By rolling the GaleWrap and Yellow Jacket brands under the Muller business, Muller can offer a broader line of stretch wrap packaging solutions, while simultaneously streamlining operations and better servicing customers. “Our customers will benefit by gaining access to more products, services, and solutions.” says Joe Albert, General Manager at Muller.  “In addition, they will be able to simplify their ordering, shipping, billing, and customer service requests, while working with informed Muller sales, technical, and customer service representatives.”

Muller is also introducing a new global stretch wrap equipment line.  Muller has teamed up with its counterparts in Europe, ITW Haloila, to standardize on an equipment offering that will be consistent worldwide.  By joining forces, Muller will be able to provide its customers with improved technology, a wider array of innovative equipment solutions, and a worldwide network of support.  Muller will continue operations in Montreal, Canada but with a focus on delivering innovative retrofits and cost saving enhancements to existing equipment installations.

The technologies and services traditionally available through Muller will remain. In addition, customers and prospects can reach out to Muller for all Yellow Jacket and GaleWrap products and services. Customers and prospects may still visit each respective company website and contact their local representatives for inquiries. Information regarding each individual brand can be found at www.mullerlcs.com, www.galewrap.com, or www.yellowjacket110.com.

“Muller now has the products and services to fit the widest variety of pallet wrapping needs,” says Albert.  “There is simply no company that can match the product range and type of services we now offer.  With the addition of ITW GaleWrap and Yellow Jacket, our customers simply have more solutions available at their fingertips. The partnership with Haloila further delivers a level of unrivaled global support in our customer’s markets.”
