One of our latest installations included the supply of one of our 5th fully automatic shrink wrappers into the newly expanded Chorley site of leading contract bottlers, H&A Wines & Spirits Group Ltd.
H&A have used shrink wrappers for many years but as part of a major expansion over the last couple of years, which saw the company moving to an eight acre site with a purpose built 130,000 sq ft factory, further capacity was required.
The equipment which we supplied consists of two completely refurbished machines, one in stainless steel, and three fully automatic side feed sleeve wrappers, the last two of which were installed in July.
The equipment is being used for shrink wrapping a variety of alcoholic beverages including the new highly popular ‘side kick’ range of drinks being produced for HP Bulmer Ltd.
As Phillip Carder, Operations Manager explained “We have stayed with YPS because of the professional advice given when considering different layout options as well as having the flexibility of being able to buy new and refurbished equipment for different lines, providing us with the best overall value”
With the intensive operator training and after sales service, H&A could move to using each line to its full capacity within a short space of time from installation. H&A are yet another customer who has bought multiple lines from us and obviously provides another prestigious installation reference for us.
