We researched the market and suppliers thoroughly using a decision matrix to narrow down a list of suppliers, who not only handled our packaging fomats, but also had extensive experience of the pet food market. There were plenty that ticked one box, but very few that ticked both. We quickly realised that the automation concept that we could create using Cama-shaped building blocks, would allow us to invest and automate in stages. Cama’s sue of commercial parts was a massive plus too. I am very cautious of ending up in a marriage with companies that do not use open standards. The thought and technology behind Cama’s machines is really clever, but also very simple to use
Robert Vrinssen, Project Engineer PPF
When we tender for packaging machines we always ask a number of different companies. There are lots of discussions and lots of solutions. In this case, we got it down to two, but eventually felt that Cama’s machine layout and packaging solution was the best fit for our needs. There’s a good feeling about Cama as a company. We have a full-time project manager supported by some really good technicians, and it’s the same technical team all the time, there’s very little change. And, unlike other suppliers, the Cama sales team stuck with us the whole time, until the project was finalised, not just up until we signed the order
Gunnar Hallmann, Group Strategic Project Manager, C&D Foods
If you ask me why we chose Cama you only have to look at our packaging lines, where you will see the machines running without any stops for an entire shift. It is then that you appreciate what you have installed. Cama understands what we need and more importantly why we need it.
On behalf of the Gimoka team, we know we have made the right choice. Now what we are doing with Cama is starting projects from scratch rather than bringing them in halfway through or as a replacement. Gimoka was one of the first companies to produce capsules and was a pioneer in the business. It is my honest opinion that if we had chosen Cama at the beginning of our capsule journey, we would have been bigger than we are now.

Cama’s solutions are safe, intuitive, easy to use and operate and can provide greater product uniformity, as well as eliminate the risk of failures in final production process, the packaging process.

One of the reasons we went with Cama was its experience and market knowhow. Cama ended up holding our hand throughout the entire process – from design through roll out and on to implementation. This was a huge comfort factor. With anything new; there’s always the fear that you don’t get what you ask for, but out of all of the various companies we approached, Cama actually got behind our needs – flexibility and reliability – which was so essential to us. Other companies wanted to talk technology, engineering and price, but in actual fact, our principal need was for someone to understand the flexibility we needed in production. Cama were the ones that listened properly and came back with a solution… not just a quote!
Andy Fawkes, Managing Director at Masteroaster
We bought Cama because they give a fantastic Engineering Solution and are willing to look beyond problems and find solutions. They will manage the Project from start to finish removing the workload from the customer and ensuring the best possible experience for their customers. It was a very good all-round experience working with CAMA engineers.

Reliability is one of the most critical factors when choosing new equipment. For me, Cama do not just sell equipment, they sell reliability.
