As others have commented, there are a great many companies around the
world manufacturing products of this type. They range from tabletop
small-office models to extremely large floor-standing units with
enough available accessories to be truly overwhelming.
As with any other equipment purchase, you'll want to decide in advance
just how much capacity you wish to buy. These units will range
anywhere from several hundred individual pieces of mail per hour to
several thousand. Some are capable of folding more sheets, or heavier
sheets, than others. Within any given category, some will offer
higher-capacity feeders than the others. Some systems are standalone,
others are designed to work in conjunction with an office PC. Some
are folder-inserters, while others are pure inserters which require a
separate folding machine. You will want to take all of this into
Given that you did not specify how many manufacturers you wanted us to
list, I followed the simple (if tedious) expedient of plugging through
several hundred search results, until I stopped seeing new brands.
The seventeen manufacturers shown below cover a wide spectrum of
brands and features, and represent Asia, Europe, and North America. I
trust this will be satisfactory. In each case, I've linked you to the
most relevant page of the manufacturer's site. In some instances the
links are rather long, so you may need to cut-and-paste them into your
browser's address bar if they do not work when you click them.
Pitney Bowes Inserters
Kern Inserting Systems
Francotyp-Postalia (little information shown online, just fill out the

their product line)

Inserco, manufacturers of the Mailcrafters line

One of the necessities for any on-line search is to have the correct
keywords. In order to learn the appropriate terminology for these
machines, I went first to the Pitney-Bowes website. After all, any
investigation of mailing equipment must logically begin with the
market leader. From there, having learned that the correct term was
"inserters", I performed the following search:
"inserter system" OR "inserting system"
From there, it was simply a matter of working through a few hundred
"hits" and tracking down the manufacturers home pages (when necessary)
by searching on the individual brands.
Thank you for an interesting search!
