We had a saucy deal for Zest Foods Ltd when they looked to upgrade their shrink wrapping machinery. Zest Foods are one of the major players in making sauces to be supplied the food industry and we are pleased to say that we have not only provided one but two fully automatic side feed sleeve wrappers into their Newtown site.
Zest Foods had first started using shrink wrapping many years ago however they had suffered from reliability issues with their old equipment and so as business continued to increase this became an increasing issue for them. Therefore as part of a major investment to improve efficiency and capacity the decision was made to upgrade two of their key lines.
The equipment we are proud to have supplied consists of two 600mm wide, side feed sleeve sealers and shrink tunnels, with a right hand and left hand feed respectively, for shrink wrapping a variety of their jars of sauce in trays in various formats.
Both of these lines were upgraded with heavy duty infeed and outfeed belts as well as with side chains on the shrink tunnel belt. These were an important feature for Zest Foods due to the potentially heavy weight of some of their packs.
We fought off strong competition to win this order as Steven Mason, Zest General Manager explained “We were not only impressed with the equipment, but YPS’s overall philosophy of total backup and service”.
“It is great to hear that Zest have been so pleased with the equipment that we have since supplied further lines to one of their subsidiary company’s with further lines planned in the future”.
