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.

SANDAR continues to be the pioneer in reel turn-up technology, wireless baling, and paperband worldwide. Through ongoing R & D, reliable service, and practical application of our pioneering technology, SANDAR continues to help maximize profits for our partners in the pulp & paper industry.
