P&G take a rewarding Shrink Wrapping Gamble on YPS!

We have had another satisfied customer following the commissioning of a fully BAMA Aerosol Compliant shrink wrapping line at the West Thurrock site of the big Blue Chip company Procter and Gamble.

Household name Procter and Gamble are global leaders in the health, beauty and home care industries and are behind such well-known, every day brands as Oral B, Gillette, Head & Shoulders, Pantene and Wella.

Custom modified to handle trayed and trayless packs of aerosols our fully automatic side feed sleeve sealer and shrink tunnel was a perfect fit. The equipment was a bespoke design for P&G in a number of ways including servo controls for increased speed as well as a complete CO2 flooding system far in excess of BAMA regulations. Additionally, the machinery was also supplied with a specially extended infeed conveyor to make loading of the product easier.

Following the success of this packaging machine, further shrink wrapping equipment has also been supplied to other Procter and Gamble sites throughout the UK.

Russell Hayes, Engineering Manager commented: ‘We are extremely happy with the machinery we have purchased from Yorkshire Packaging. Throughout the process they were extremely easy to deal with, paid great attention to detail and offered the right specification of equipment for our needs.’

Supplying such a recognised and world-leading company as Procter and Gamble is always satisfying for us. As you can probably imagine there was some tough competition for this order but ultimately but our specification of equipment and proven track record came through and we are very pleased it did.
