The History of Certified Machinery
Certified Machinery was incorporated in 1994. We started by selling used packaging equipment and new product handling systems for coding and marking, i.e.: our twin belt transports, twin belt diverters and case feeders. CMI became known for our expertise in rebuilt equipment, primarily cartoners. Widespread use of the internet enabled us to connect with customers across the country / world that would not have known a company located in New Jersey. Since then much has changed. As a company we have evolved from just offering used equipment to including new equipment into our repertoire. We are pleased to offer a full line of packaging machinery including, but not limited to: fillers, tube fillers, cappers, labelers, cartoners, checkweighers, metal detectors, etc.
Our business philosophy is that your reputation is all you have in business. We believe that we have built a good reputation by selling good equipment at a reasonable price and exceed the requirements of our customers projects.
