Brown Machine Group rebrands as BMG

Nov. 22, 2021

Brown Machine Group, a provider of forming, tooling and automation solutions for the packaging industry, announced that it is changing its name to BMG to reflect its growth and market position as a leading global turn-key solutions provider for the plastic and paper packaging industry.

Brown Machine Group was originally created with the purpose of unifying a collection of industrial brands into one family. The company’s new branding as BMG brings together the companies already owned by Brown Machine Group under one consistent name.

“BMG is Brown, Lyle, GN, Freeman, NAS and aXatronics. Brown Machine Group was already being shortened to BMG both externally and internally, and we believe the change is more inclusive to our family of brands and is easy for our customers to identify and remember,” explains Greg Wolf, BMG’s president and CEO. “BMG is our umbrella, and each brand can talk about solutions across the portfolio to fit customer needs. Together, BMG represents experience, innovation and superior customer service, with a reputation for delivering solutions to improve consistency, productivity and profitability. We look forward to building on BMG’s solid foundation in future growth through acquisition.”

In conjunction with the name change, BMG has aligned its businesses into three core areas to serve its customers:

  • BMG Forming Solutions offers a variety of sizes and capabilities for thermoforming machines through the Brown, Lyle and GN product offerings;
  • BMG Tooling Solutions offers forming, trim, form-fill seal and contact heat tooling by Freeman and GN;
  • BMG Automation Solutions offers robotic material handling and packaging automation by integrating NAS and Axatronics products.
