Founded in 1975, SANDAR Industries served the pulp & paper industry representing suppliers for sales in the Southeastern United
States and South America. Witnessing first hand the problems and safety hazards associated with reel turn-ups, Pete Rodriguez
developed and patented the first paperband reel turn-up system in 1984. It did not take long before this patented technology
became a worldwide standard. Today there are over 1000 applications incorporating SANDAR's technology.
With headquarters in Atlantic Beach, Florida, SANDAR is the world's largest Turn-UP System and paperband manufacturer. SANDAR's
Affiliation with PAPELTEC OVERSEAS, Inc. has furthered the product's presence with distribution centers across the globe including
Hamburg and Hong Kong.
In the late 1990's, SANDAR introduced another innovation; BAND-IT Wireless Baleband System was the first of its kind to strap pulp
bales with a repulpable band instead, of wires. This proven technology is used on several pulp lines around the world and will
soon become an industry standard.
