Packserv | About Us | Rental Packaging Machinery

Packserv has established a reputation as the leading rental and technical service provider for the packaging industry by offering a fleet of equipment that can automate almost every part of the packaging process, utilising the latest technologies.


Packserv is an Australian owned company, established in 2007. With offices in Sydney and Melbourne and a rental fleet of almost 400 packaging and ancillary machines, we are the largest rental company operating in the FMCG market space. We support the smallest ‘cottage’ businesses as well as large scale international operations. Through 25 years of experience our team of trained technicians can be on the road 24/7 to provide support to all the users of our quality machines.

Packserv also provide access to spare parts, consumables, and ancillary equipment via the Packshop portal which can be accessed via this website.

Over the years Packserv has earned a reputation for knowing what ‘help’ means to our customers. Our highly trained and experienced technicians are happy to advise on production processes as well as how to fit the correct machine for optimum process improvement. Our dedication to providing the best available equipment has led to Packserv acquiring some ‘best in class’ equipment from a few international suppliers who have chosen to partner with us to make a range of machines accessible to our customers along with the technical support that reduces down-time and enhances consistency of production.

our director

Nathan Wardell is 3rd generation FMCG packaging and manufacturing. Nathan is the son of Gary Higgins, founder, and creator of most of the industry standard brands of packaging machinery still in use today. Brands like Asset Packaging Machinery, Profill, Flowfill, Rentafill, Collier Packaging and Mourpack Engineering all have Nathan’s family DNA evident in their history and development.

Early in Gary’s career he worked as a designer/machinist at Reilax Packaging in the 1970’s together with Mitch Vinski. Together they would go on to create Asset Packaging and Vinski Engineering respectively. Asset Packaging Machinery’s early designs were still made by Mitch Vinski until mid-2020 when the business was sold.

Nathan originally trained as an accountant before leaving that life behind in 1995 to work full-time with his father developing Rentafill. Having had work experience with both at Asset and Collier Packaging, when both were making machines for Flowfill, Nathan’s tranistion into the family business was entirely natural.

Nathan was left to run Rentafill alone from 1997, after his father left to pursue a life-long ambition to tour the world. However, when Gary returned some years later he decided he would sell Rentafill which prompted Nathan to go alone and start Packserv. That was 14 years ago and since then Packserv has continued to grow and diversify.

For over 25 years Nathan has been involved in the packaging machinery industry. As Packserv has grown so has the requirement for machinery, custom parts, and technical services so it was entirely natural to meet that need by creating a full service machine shop that turns out custom parts and machinery to its growing clientele.

The sale of Asset Packaging prompted Nathan to make the move to become a full scale manufacturer, producing Packserv’s own range of machinery, parts and accessories In many respects this has ‘squared the circle’ for Nathan and returned him to his roots as an engineer.

from the director

“Packserv is not ‘just a rental outlet’. Our business is not built on a ‘set and forget’ or ‘drop off and pick up service’ mentality. We recognise our clients require a service that will enable them to have full access to many different machines at short notice with support and expert know-how. That’s how we are able to set ourselves apart from our competitors”
