Omori’s Journey to Becoming Your Number One Provider.

Expert Solutions for Flow Wrappers, Stretch Wrappers, End-Seal Wrappers, Accessories, and Consumables.

For 75 years Omori has been a pioneer in packaging equipment solutions. Packaging protects commodities, improves presentation and portability, and increases marketing impact. Our goal is to pack cleaner, pack leaner, pack faster and pack reliably.

Omori North America originated as B.W. Cooney & Associates Inc., which was founded in 1987 by Brian and Wendy Cooney as a distributor of consumables and used or rebuilt machines for the packaging industry. In 1994, B.W. Cooney obtained the exclusive rights for the distribution of Omori equipment and parts in North America. The Company evolved into three  operating divisions: Equipment, Parts & Service, and Consumables.

In 2012 Omori Machinery Co., Ltd. of Japan purchased a 50% interest in B.W. Cooney & Associates Inc. and the Company was renamed Omori North America Inc. The Company’s culture has always been steeped in a “service first” mentality and has consistently demonstrated creativity and initiative in adapting to the ever-changing packaging market demands. It continues to be fanatically focused on having a competitive advantage in niche markets, such as meat products and mushrooms, which it has established over the last three decades. In the summer of 2022, our founding members sold the remaining 50% ownership. Today, Omori North America is now wholly owned by Omori Japan.

Omori North America is committed to exceeding our customers’ expectations by employing trained and knowledgeable sales, service and support staff, who focus on helping our customers improve their packaging operations and supply chain.
