American Standard Choose YPS Again!
Yorkshire Packaging Systems Ltd the leading supplier of shrink wrapping systems in the UK has recently installed its second wide Rochman automatic inline sleeve wrapper into the Hull based factory of American Standard, in the space of twelve months.
American Standard, home of leading brands such as Armitage Shanks, Ideal Standard and Trevi to name just a few are the world's premier producer of bathroom products.
YPS supplied a 2.6m wide sleeve sealer and shrink tunnel in the first quarter of 2004 to wrap shower enclosures and doors. So pleased were American Standard that when a second machine was required for the shower bases department, they did not have need to look any where else.
This second line was not as wide, measuring 1.5m in width and is being used to securely shrink wrap a variety of shower bases.
This equipment was upgraded in a number of key areas to accommodate packs up to a maximum weight of 80 kilos as well as provide the best presentation possible.
Due to the width of film required, the weight of each roll is still relatively high and so a the same hoist system for ensuring the top roll of film is easily fitted onto the machine was provided, along with a new and unique double roll holding system.
Stuart Bullock, senior operations manager explained 'Staying with YPS really was a logical choice and we are as pleased with this line as we were with the first'.
Glyn Johnson YPS Sales Director continued "This experience is typical of many of our customers to the extent that over 40% of our sales in any single financial year are now from existing customers making repeat purchases. This high level would not be achieved if we didn't get things right first time."
