About Us

Our founder and president, Norman Thomas, an M.I.T. graduate, began his bottling and packaging career more than 40 years ago as the Latin America sales representative in South America for the renown Geo. J. Meyer Mfg.

Among his main clients at the time were Coca-Cola, Pepsi-Cola, Postobón, Pampero, Fca. de Licores de Antioquia, and Ron Santa Teresa.

Once he possessed the necessary experience in the complex bottling world, and with the goal of becoming an independent businessman, Mr. Thomas founded P.I.E. Inc. in 1982.

He increased his product lines thus offering the complete spectrum of equipment necessary to clean, fill, cap, label, and package bottles.

From our beginnings P.I.E. represented premier companies in the packaging industry, including Geo. J. Meyer, Gruppo Bertolaso, U.S. Bottlers, Alfa Labelling, Elmar, Hamrick, ABC, and Oden Corp. Later on, mainly as a result of the success with our clients, we continued to increase the number of companies we represented by adding Bortolinkemo, Pace Packaging, Autolabe, Bardi, BRB Globus, Euroimpianti, Sacmi, Thermaline, Tecmi, and Della Toffola, thus allowing us to offer more solutions to our clients. As an integral part of our growth, we added offices in Venezuela, Colombia, and Mexico. Each office has a sales and technical staff to provide service and installation capabilities for all the products we sell. From our headquarters in Miami, Florida we coordinate all design, sales, logistic and sales efforts.
