Our story

In 2005 a small group of enthusiastic people from the coding and marking industry identified a number of recurring problems that were prevalent, particularly in the manufacture of food and beverage products. The lack of integration and communication between different brands of equipment was one frustration, whilst date coding errors and packaging errors were a major headache.

The launch of AutoCoding Systems aimed to address both these and other issues by providing solutions for the control and automation of packaging line devices.  These solutions cover areas such as automatic date coding and coding control, packaging verification and label verification. Over the years the AutoCoding solution has been developed using the latest techniques in software engineering and now many years on, with a team of over 45 people, we have installed the AutoCoding solution on more than 1800 packaging lines in the UK and Ireland, US and Australia.

Fast forward 15 years and at the beginning of 2021 AutoCoding Systems was acquired by the multi-billion $ company, JBT Corporation.  AutoCoding Systems are now part of the Food Tech division which supplies customised food processing solutions and services across the breadth of the global food processing industry.  AutoCoding Systems will have the opportunity to work closely with other companies within the JBT group, such as Proseal whose tray sealing equipment is already present on many of the packaging lines controlled by an AutoCoding solution.

Purpose built working environment

The company operates from modern purpose-built premises in Cheshire. Here we have a fully functional dedicated Demonstration Suite and Training facility, a well-equipped Workshop and Testing area and extensive offices to accommodate our in-house Technical Support team, as well as Sales, Marketing and Finance personnel.

Global reach

Over the years our reputation for technical excellence has extended further afield and in 2015 our expansion plans have taken us to either sides of the globe. Building on our widespread experience in the food and beverage sectors in the UK, we have made our debut into the US and Australian markets. Our packaging line automation and control solutions are now available through AutoCoding Systems LLC and AutoCoding Systems Pty respectively. Working with our Systems Integration Partners, we have now installed the AutoCoding solution on multiple lines in a number of major food processing plants, integrating seamlessly with a variety of existing onsite factory solutions.

Being part of the JBTC family will give us increased opportunities to continue to expand and grow within food and beverage industries globally.


Looking to the future

Over the next few years, you can expect to see our world-class solutions installed in factories across the world as shrewd FMCG manufacturing companies recognise the benefits of seamless integration of factory information systems, coupled with the guarantee of error-free packaged goods.
