Automated Packaging Systems, Inc. has been a world leader in designing and manufacturing flexible bag packaging systems since 1962. Headquartered in Streetsboro, Ohio, Automated Packaging Systems is a global packaging supplier, with sales, service, and distribution offices located throughout North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia and Australia, and more than 30,000 packaging systems in operation worldwide. With nine manufacturing plants, Automated Packaging Systems produces more bags-on-a-roll and bagging systems than all of its competitors combined. Their Total Systems Approach to packaging combines machines, materials and service to provide customers with superior quality products and exceptional service.


Automated Packaging Systems engaged Laketec to design and implement a new and more reliable Aruba wireless networking infrastructure across several locations and in multiple states. After creating a wireless design, complete with predictive coverage heatmaps, Laketec also provided a CAT6 cabling plan to support the new design. Automated Packaging Systems also had the need to ensure network security while maintaining end user experience.


By implementing Aruba ClearPass on top of the wireless network, administrators are now able to seamlessly automate access control policy application based on a number of different criteria.


Laketec designed, cabled, installed, and configured all 7 sites within 8 weeks and provided training and documentation for their internal IT department to continue managing the system once completed.

“The main objective we at Automated Packaging Systems wanted to achieve with our new wireless project was a seamless deployment and a solid and robust wireless platform. In addition, we needed a strong partner with a proven track record to execute the installation. I personally had utilized Laketec as a partner at a prior company and had a good experience and wanted to bring that same success to Automated Packaging Systems. Laketec has strong engineering resources who really know the Aruba product well. The project was well managed, we had weekly calls and worked through deployments at each site, then followed up with a punch list to address any outstanding issues. The project was on time and within budget. I would recommend Laketec as a very strong partner.”

Laketec Testimonial

Sr. Systems Engineer

“This project with Automated Packaging was exciting because it allowed us to integrate Aruba ClearPass with Microsoft’s InTune Cloud service, which is something that we had not done previously. This NAC solution is especially interesting to work with because it integrates with so many other vendors and allows us to layer this in many different types of environments and with multiple services, not just Active Directory.”
