About Us

Axon celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2011 as a leading innovator and manufacturer of shrink sleeve applicators, stretch sleeve applicators and heat shrink tunnels for the worldwide packaging industry. An expanding portfolio of patents attests to Axon's commitment to continuous improvement, aggressive innovation and providing the highest overall value to our customers. As you browse our website, take note of the many obvious, and subtle, ways that Axon's sleeve labeling equipment is designed for ease of use and overall equipment efficiency.


Axon was founded when tamper-evident bands first emerged as a common feature of over-the-counter pharmaceutical packaging. The Company's later acquisition of Styrotech stretch sleeving technology and integration into ProMach, Inc. in 1999 afforded it the broadest range of capabilities in the sleeve labeling industry and the capital resources to drive new product innovations and optimize customer service and support.

Customer Driven

Above all else, Axon is committed to providing its customers the means to produce the most attractive sleeve labeled products in the market. We listen. We advise. Axon sales consultants ask a lot of questions, and every project is carefully evaluated by our technology committee to ensure that the customers' aesthetic and performance objectives are achieved. Once installed, an Axon machine will be supported for the rest of its life by our ProCustomer® service team and PMMI Certified field service technicians.


We encourage customers and agents to visit our factory and showroom in Raleigh, North Carolina. We've been proudly engineering and manufacturing our shrink & stretch sleeve labelers here since 1991.

We’re located about 30 minutes by car from Raleigh-Durham International (RDU) Airport in the Walnut Creek Business Park.
