Advanced Machinery was founded by Wim Buyle in 1989. Initially, the company undertook the installation of web-guiding systems, as well as the overhaul and maintenance of such systems – on a free-lance basis. Subsequently, the activities were expanded into the design, construction and maintenance of other equipments and accessories used in the converting industry: web tension controls, expansion shafts, spreader rollers, longitudinal cutting systems, etc.
In April 1990, Advanced Machinery signed its first exclusive agency contract for the Benelux-countries with Re Controlli Industriali from Italy. The positive and rewarding experiences with this Italian principal resulted in more exclusive representation contracts with other Italian quality companies.
In its search for partners, Advanced Machinery has always put a lot of emphasis into communication in order to be able to provide an impeccable service to the customer and to manage projects efficiently. From the price request all the way to the installation of the equipments and the overhaul & maintenance, Advanced Machinery has proven to be the indispensable link between the customer and the equipment manufacturer, through its accurate translation of the customer’s requirements, its experience and know-how, its dedication and commitment. The service- oriented strategy of the company has been the key to its success, both with the clientele and the OEM-partners.
To further complete its product line, today Advanced Machinery also offers Flexo Printing Presses, Rotogravure, slitter-rewinders, blown film machines, laminating machines, and other machines.
