MOSCA Celebrates 50TH Anniversary
In a period spanning 50 years, Mosca GmbH has evolved from a two man shop building string tying machines to a worldwide company known for supplying creative, high-performing strapping systems in diverse markets.
Company Founder Gerd Mosca started his business in the town of Hilden, Germany in 1966 because he thought he had a better idea. His first product was a string tying machine, but he soon saw an opportunity to improve the application of a new product – extruded plastic strapping – for bundling and box closing requirements. Over the years, better ideas have kept coming and the Mosca product offering has only improved and developed a broader customer base.
Examples of important Mosca innovations over the years include a precision cam actuated strap feed track that enabled successful high speed bundler operation with lightweight, narrow gage polypropylene strapping, and use of individual DC brushless direct drives to replace noisy, high maintenance mechanical transmission systems. Recently, Mosca’s proprietary Sonixs, ultra-sonic strap sealing system has made bundling and unitizing systems cleaner, mechanically simpler and more reliable. The Company continues to innovate in the areas of electronics, programming and added functionality to expand the capabilities of its systems, to meet the forever changing requirements of worldwide producers.
Today the Mosca organization is run by Timo Mosca, son of the founder, who, along with his wife Simone, continues the tradition of innovation and growth started by his father. The Mosca organization now circles the globe, employs about 850 associates, and includes not only bundling machines, but also unitizers, complete automated packaging systems and the local support that provides the operational success and security its high profile customers demand. As one measure of its success, the Company shipped its 100,000th machine in 2011.
While the Mosca brand is built on its equipment reputation, the company is truly a complete system supplier. With modern strap production operations in Germany, the U.S.A. and Malaysia, Mosca offers single source responsibility for machine and consumable performance that provides customers both convenience and proven reliability. In addition, with 16 offices and production facilities throughout Europe, the Americas, Asia and Australia, Mosca provides the local sales expertise, technical services and parts support that complete the full solution approach that has been its hallmark since the very beginning.
As a privately held business, the Mosca group benefits from the ability to take a long term approach to innovation and business development. It remains a family company both in terms of ownership and its organization culture. It prides itself on staying close to its markets and truly putting customers first. And of course, true to its roots, Mosca is committed to being the technology leader in the strapping systems world.
According to Daniel Dreher, president of EAM-Mosca, the Mosca GmbH affiliate in the Americas, “the company byline is: Innovative Technology, Practical Solutions, Superior Performance. There is no better statement of the Mosca reality, whether we are talking about yesterday, today or tomorrow.”
