Who or what is JASA?

Our friends call us JASA, but our full name is JASA Packaging Solutions. We are the partner for packaging solutions for many companies. But call us JASA.

JASA stands for innovation, quality, and flexibility in packaging technology. As you may have already seen on our website, we put everything in sustainable packaging as much as possible. We specialize in weighing and packaging machines. Developing, manufacturing, and (inter)national sales of machines and packaging lines for the products you find in supermarkets, such as meal salads, vegetable servings, apple trays, fruit, and potatoes. Those tapas trays you get at the supermarket which you serve with drinks? Yep, they are also filled on our machines.

The team

At JASA, we form an enthusiastic team in which you will fit in very well. For over thirty years, we have been building packaging machines with a focus on hygiene, efficiency, ease of use, and service. In the last few years, we have been growing double digits and expanded internationally. We all enjoy where we are headed.

Innovation: our road to happiness

Like you, JASA doesn't like to tread water. Innovation is our way and the essential pillar of our growth strategy. Our Research & Development team is, therefore, continuously engaged in the development of new innovative machines. Enabling us to respond even better to the wishes of our customers.


What do our customers want? This varies from working out a total solution with a single point of contact for a clear identification of the problem, searching for the best solution, professional realization to the installation of complete machine lines, after-sales service, and preventive maintenance. A supercool total picture! Our customers can count on JASA 24/7.

What do customers want from our Software Engineers? In particular: contributing ideas for their processes, and to translate those ideas into technical solutions. Keywords include fast changeover times, intuitive operation and safety for operators, energy efficiency, process speed, and serviceability.
