Fowler Products Achieves 60-year Milestone
ATHENS, Georgia — Fowler Products, a division of Pro Mach, is celebrating its 60th year in business in 2012.
Started in 1952 by Hugh Fowler in the basement of a hardware store in downtown Athens, the company now serves its customers from a 75,000-square-foot facility equipped with state-of-the-art engineering and manufacturing equipment. Its customers include most of the major producers of foods, beverages, and pharmaceuticals in the United States. Fowler’s products include capping systems, bottle cleaners, filling systems, and pulsed-light decontamination systems.
From its humble start, Fowler Products is now recognized as one of the premier manufacturers of packaging machinery, along with its three French partners, Andre Zalkin & CIE, Perrier Bottling Systems, and Claranor. The company began its relationship with the Zalkin Company in 1972, with the Perrier Company in 1987, and with Claranor in 2008. Fowler works closely with these three partners to develop new products and services that meet the unique requirements of the U.S marketplace.
Eighty employees cover a wide range of job responsibilities, including engineering, manufacturing, sales, service, and administrative functions. Fowler serves thousands of installations throughout the United States and the Caribbean. In 2000, Fowler was acquired by Pro Mach, Inc. of Cincinnati, Ohio. Pro Mach, Inc. is a leading provider of integrated packaging products and solutions with 17 well-known world-class brands and approximately 1,100 employees.
Don Cotney, President and General Manager of Fowler Products, stated, “Fowler Products has been successful because of the vision of its founders, the commitment of its subsequent leaders, and, most importantly, the dedicated service of its employees, some of whom have been at Fowler for more than 40 years. We look forward to the future as we build on the foundation and guiding principles established over the past 60 years.”
