About INSITE Packaging Automation


We believe good business begins with honoring your time. We've built an entire business around doing just that.

Packaging: it’s in Our DNA

INSITE is a new brand in the packaging equipment industry, but our history runs deep. If you look beyond the logo, the product and the people, you’ll notice that we’ve built this business upon the time-tested foundation of Douglas Machine Inc. For over 50 years, Douglas earned its reputation as a problem solver for the toughest packaging problems. Creative, customized, rigorously engineered, durably built packaging machines have been—and still are—Douglas’ calling card. INSITE is harnessing that seasoned creativity and commitment to quality, and applying it to a fresh, streamlined approach for customers to access exceptional standardized packaging equipment.

“INSITE” represents our straightforward promise to bring clarity and understanding into the automated packaging industry, and deliver it to you when and where you need it most.


Exceptional 24/7 Support

INSITE’s customer support begins well before any purchase. We take a decades-long legacy of superior customer service and apply it to our very first interactions with you. But it won’t end there. We hope to be your partner in smart packaging equipment for decades to come. And through it all, we’ll be here ready to help.

If your packaging solution breaks down or doesn’t deliver the quality you expect, the INSITE service team will assist you immediately with 24/7 technical support.

Our warranty provides three years of coverage against material and workmanship defects along with extended component coverages. You can learn more about the INSITE warranty here.

Insite Support

You're Here

INSITE’s approach to the marketplace is enabled by a focus on standardized equipment. This focus frees us to seek economies of scale in both production and market engagement while giving you the access and control you expect when buying less customized equipment. Meanwhile, this focus also allows us to direct more resources toward our products while reducing or eliminating costs that you – our customers – shouldn’t have to incur when purchasing a standardized packaging machine.

All of this is our way of saying that we’re taking a slightly different path here at INSITE. And that path leads straight to you.

Want general information? This site is a good place to start. Want to talk to an expert, live? INSITE’s customer support team is waiting to pick up the phone. Prefer e-mail? No problem. We’ll get back to you quickly and efficiently. But maybe you’d rather just have all the information you need right at your fingertips. That’s where we shine.
