Brown Machine Group Changes Name to BMG

Brown Machine Group, Beaverton, Michigan, 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 has grown steadily through the years, including by recently acquiring GN Thermoforming. The company’s new branding as BMG brings together the companies already owned by Brown Machine Group under one consistent name.

In conjunction with the name change, BMG has aligned its businesses into three core areas to serve its customers: BMG FORMING SOLUTIONS, which offers a variety of sizes and capabilities for thermoforming machines through the Brown, Lyle and GN product offerings; BMG TOOLING SOLUTIONS, which offers forming, trim, form-fill seal and contact heat tooling by Freeman and GN and BMG AUTOMATION SOLUTIONS, which offers robotic material handling and packaging automation by integrating NAS and Axatronics products.
