Our expertise

About us


At PKB, we are dedicated to designing and manufacturing the most advanced and innovative filling and capping machines for each industry.

Our team of experts in mechanical and automation design work closely with our customers to understand their specific needs and develop custom solutions that cater to the unique and evolving packaging requirements of their products.

We take pride in our ability to create machines that are not only highly functional but also adaptable to the ever-changing trends in the industry.

We are constantly pushing the boundaries of what is possible in order to provide our customers with the best possible machinery for their business.


We are engaged in a continuous research and development effort to improve our filling machines and capping lines.

PKB works in partnership with various suppliers and independent laboratories to conduct detailed analysis and certification of fluid flows, electrical equipment, risk zoning, and other areas to optimize and innovate our machines.

We use the latest technology and apply for patents to secure developed innovations. We have recently renewed our entire range of PKB filling machines, making them the most high-tech on the market. Our focus is on offering simplicity for the end user and the best return on investment in equipment.

We have also set up a test workshop to test all types of customer products in live conditions to select the best technology for our customers.



As a designer and manufacturer of filling machines for the Fragrance and Cosmetic industry, we at PKB are particularly sensitive to ecological issues, which is why we have taken measures to improve our environmental performance. This includes the eco-design of our machines, but we also pride ourselves on our ongoing corporate social responsibility initiatives.

PKB signed the Charter for an Eco Responsible Cosmetic Valley on 16 October 2009, demonstrating our commitment to sustainable development. Cosmetic Valley has awarded PKB 3 peonies for the excellence of its Eco-responsible approach. Moreover, as a member of Cosmetic Valley, we have the opportunity to discuss and exchange ideas with other members and implement key sustainable development initiatives specific to the Fragrance and Cosmetic industry.

PKB has been awarded with the ECOVADIS Silver Medal for Sustainability ranking, proving our engagement for environmental, labor & human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement issues.


PKB uses the latest technology such as servodrives and digital control motions to optimize the performance of our cosmetic and perfume filling machines. This improves the ease of use, reduces format changeover times, and increases productivity and profitability.

With servodrives we are able to optimize functions like transmission, torque control, dynamic positioning movements, and automatic positioning for format changeovers.

This advanced technology also reduces the need for mechanical maintenance and lubrication tasks.
We offer additional features such as in-built production monitoring, diagnostics and remote maintenance assistance via internet.

PKB has been manufacturing filling and capping machines for cosmetics and fragrance products. Always striving for innovation in packaging machines and filling lines technology.

We’re widely acknowledged as the packaging machines experts and the global leader in the manufacturing for the perfume, cosmetics, and contract packer industries.
