About YPS

About YPS

At Yorkshire Packaging Systems, we’ve been manufacturing and supplying shrink wrap machines and shrink film since 1977. During this time we’ve grown to become one of the UK’s largest manufacturers and distributors and offer unrivaled expertise. We are based in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire and we are able to supply our complete range to any part of the UK. We have supplied our equipment spread as far across the UK as Jersey to the Shetland Isles.

We have a large bank of customer testimonials and case studies from our customers who have been left happy with their experience when dealing with YPS.

As specialists in shrink wrapping, we manufacture and supply all types of equipment. Our products range from simple manual L sealers to fully automatic, high speed, heavy duty, and stainless steel sleeve wrappers aimed primarily at the dairy industry.

To reflect the growing demand for turnkey automated packaging systems we have developed our own machine building division and are now able to supply and manufacture bespoke shrink wrapping systems. This service offers customers a one-stop-shop for automated packaging solutions, including conveyors, convertors, palletisers, pick and place systems, lane diverters and collation systems to compliment the shrink wrap machinery.

To complement our machine range we are exclusive UK distributors for Bollore high performance polyolefin shrink film, which we offer on a next day delivery basis. We also offer a fully biodegradable plastic film as we are aware that the demand for eco friendly packaging is ever increasing. We also have many different types of shrink plastic available specifically designed for modified atmosphere packaging.

Complete shrink wrapping service

As we offer a total solution service to our customers, we usually find that supplying the machine is just the start of the relationship more often than not we supply the shrink film that works with the machine. And, as most of our customers require their machine to operate at optimum efficiency at all times, they take advantage of our regular servicing and preventative maintenance contracts.  Helping to ensure that your heat sealing machine is always working efficiently, our servicing and maintenance contracts are carried out by our own experienced and qualified service engineers.

When the shrink wrap machine eventually comes to the end of its useful life or your shrink wrap requirements outgrow its capacities, we can part exchange it for a new wrapping machine. The benefit to you is guaranteed Yorkshire Packaging Systems backup and support for your shrink wrapper.

If you want to plan for the future then talk to us. With most of our machinery we can usually provide an upgrade path.  This means that even if your current production requirements don’t justify the expense of more automated packaging systems, you can plan for a time when they will.

Expert advice and shrink wrapping demonstrations

Our sales team and engineers are always happy to give expert advice about all your heatshrink requirements. In fact we actively encourage new customers to visit our purpose-built demonstration facility in order to see our equipment first hand.

Here we can demonstrate the different capabilities of our range of machines, offer advice on the most suitable machinery for your application and, most importantly, let you see the shrink wrap machines, polyolefin and polythene shrink film and product all working together. We can even demonstrate the palletising process of the final product if this is something which your production line requires.
