About us • Aesus

Our History and our Values

Aesus Systems was founded in 2003 and was the amalgamation of D. L. Tech Inc (founded in 1995) and (EDT founded in 1997). The founding partners of Aesus were previously partners or employees in Kalish (founded in 1956) and NJM-CLI (NJM-CLI was founded in 1972 by an ex-Kalish employee). Most of the employees of Aesus have considerable experience in packaging, sleeving and labelling machinery. At its zenith Kalish was one of the premier pharmaceutical and cosmetic packaging machine manufacturers in North America, employing over 300 people with sales over $60 million.

Aesus has supplied different packaging machinery solutions  to many countries around the world.  Through our experienced technical sales team and broad agency of International representatives, we can deliver great solutions to you!
