About Us

Our North American Headquarters

A leader in easy-to-use, reliable packaging machinery

Founded in the early 2000's as leonhard packaging solutions (LPS), Viking Masek Packaging Technologies has quickly grown to become a leader in durable, innovative packaging machinery.

We manufacture easy-to-use premade pouch packing machines, economical VFFS baggers, high-speed continuous motion vertical baggers, flow wrappers, and multilane stick packaging machines. Additionally, we offer a comprehensive range of secondary packaging equipment such as palletizers, cartoners, and advanced robotics, seamlessly integrating with your primary packaging needs.

Our baggers integrate seamlessly with weighers and fillers, infeed and outfeed equipment, metal detectors, and X-ray systems, cartoners and casepackers, and other automated packaging equipment. From cheese and coffee to raw poultry and fresh vegetables, to pharmaceuticals and dietary supplements, plus much more, Viking Masek has the packaging solution.

Automated packaging machinery is a substantial investment. We believe you deserve a partner that will do whatever it takes to make your packaging ideas a reality and provide the best possible ROI. No matter what you’re trying to bag, we will find a way to make it happen. We love a challenge. Bring it on.

Our Values

Our workplace culture is one of our greatest strengths. We live our values every day and constantly seek to improve as we grow as individuals and as a team.

It takes a village. From sales and marketing to engineering to accounting and everything in between, cross-functional teamwork and the open exchange of ideas are vital to a successful packaging machine project.

ENTREPRENURIAL SPIRIT. We are leaders that embrace challenge and aren’t afraid to go against the grain. We dream big, solve problems, make decisions, and accomplish what we set out to do.

DRIVE & PASSION. We follow established procedures while still recognizing that sometimes we need to think outside the box to create the best customer experience. We want our clients to see our passion and excitement for creating a packaging solution that helps them do business better.

INNOVATION. We use our wide breadth of knowledge and talents to develop technologies that keep us ahead of the competition. We invest in R&D to develop new ways of solving old problems.

PREPARE TO WIN. Like athletes, we are always pushing ourselves to do better and thinking a step ahead. We celebrate our wins and then take on the next challenge.
