Angelus Sanitary Can Machine Company was founded in Los Angeles, California in 1910 by inventor Henry L. Guenther. Guenther designed and patented machinery for producing double seams on cans. He had a vision for a company that would produce the finest machines of its kind, anywhere in the world.
In 2007, Pneumatic Scale Corporation acquired Angelus and is now PneumaticScaleAngelus, a proud member of the Barry-Wehmiller Companies. Since then, PneumaticScaleAngelus has become a major global supplier of can closing and seaming machines. We are a recognized leader in the design, production and maintenance of high-speed equipment. Our can seamers and can closing machines are designed to meet the specific canning and seaming equipment needs of beverage, food, non-food and can manufacturing industries around the globe. Angelus provides on-going customer service, technical service, engineering support, spare-parts, tooling and training all over the world.
PneumaticScaleAngelus maintains a major market position in the supply of fillers, cappers, can seamers, labelers, centrifuges and change-parts for the pharmaceutical, personal care, food, beverage, canning and household products industries worldwide. The company’s presence is well-established in the marketplace with custom-engineered product lines that include HEMA, Mateer and Pneumatic Scale Fillers; Pneumatic Scale Cappers; Angelus and Closetech Seamers; Burt Labelers; Carr and Centritech Centrifuges; OnTrack Orienters and Wet Case Detectors; MTS Labelers; and Zepf Change-Parts and storage solutions.
As a member of the Barry-Wehmiller Family of companies, PneumaticScaleAngelus strives to be the kind of company that enables its associates to return home each day with a true sense of fulfillment—the kind of company that people enjoy working for, doing business with, investing in, and having as part of their families and communities.
By sending our associates home each night enriched by their experience with us rather than drained by it, we enable our team members to be better parents, better spouses, better friends and better members of the community. This belief is at the heart of Barry-Wehmiller’s Guiding Principles of Leadership, our vision document which has become the very foundation of our organization. It is based upon the conviction that communication, trust, celebration, respect and responsible freedom are important tenets of an ideal corporate culture. It is what we mean when we say:
“We measure success by the way we touch the lives of people.”
