In 2019 after the sale of Montana Canning Co., I set out to design and build modular automated packaging equipment (M.A.P.) for the craft beverage industry. The entire 5 years I was running my canning line I was scheming up machines that would increase my efficiency and raise the quality of the products I was packaging. With a background as an Electrician specializing in automation and motor control and a knack of build things, M.A.P Equipment was born. To date, we have created Post Packaging solutions for PackTech Handles, 12 Pack Boxes, and Weight Based Auto-Rejection.

What separates us from the competition?
M.A.P. is at forefront of the technology revolution replacing the tried and true, built since the 1970s, PLC with the fast-growing technology called IIOT (Industrial Internet of Things). This is where Nate came into the picture with his 15 years of experience and expertise in computer programming. Together we chose IIOT in favor of PLCs as we believe the future in automation is trending towards the use of computers as a way to lower the build cost and increase capabilities while allowing us to integrate machines seamlessly together. As a company, we strive to develop smarter, more connected machines to ease the burden on employees and raise efficiency.
With over 15 years of experience in IT and Web Development, Nathan joined Tony in designing and automating several products at MAP nearly 3 years ago. What started as a passion project that has blossomed into a career in automating craft beer canning. With Tony, he continues to strive to bring the best products possible to market to help improve the canning process.
