In 1996, SWF acquired McDowell International Packaging Systems, thereby adding a complete line of RSC machines to its product offering.

McDowell was established in 1977 to service the RSC case erector/bottom sealer needs of the Florida fresh fruit market. In 1980, McDowell expanded its market focus to include the blow-molded plastics industry with a line of bottle packers, unpackers, and sealers.

Over the years, customer demand led McDowell into the development of top sealers, drop case packers, place case packers, inverted case packers and five gallon, filled bottle rack loaders. Development continued to include a wide array of markets and customers, including producers of food, beverage, chemical, meat, dairy, bakery, petroleum, and personal care products.
