Exhibition Success for YPS!
Between 25th and 27th September, YPS headed down to the Birmingham NEC for the annual PPMA exhibition, the foremost event for those in the packaging and processing machinery industry. The show, now in its 30th year, did not disappoint.
Our newly redesigned stand, now incorporating a shrink film station, attracted hundreds of visitors over the course of the exhibition. We welcomed both existing and new customers on to the stand and so our sales team have returned to the office with scores of promising enquiries for shrink wrapping projects to follow up, both in machinery and film.
This year we exhibited a full complement of shrink wrapping equipment from our range, from entry level to high-speed, high-end machinery, and for a variety of different applications. Our new ‘Servo X’ high speed side sealer and tunnel amassed a lot of interest from visitors who stopped for a working demonstration. As well as a machinery offering, our newly-launched B-NAT bio-based shrink film was showcased and as a result, many visitors have arranged trials, impressed by its eco-friendly credentials. A further success was the popular ‘Bright Ideas Ambassador’ programme launched by PPMA this year, for which our managing director Glyn Johnson was put forward as the shrink wrapping expert.
Finally, this year’s PPMA award ceremony was held on the evening of Tuesday 25th September at the Hilton Hotel in Birmingham. More entries than ever before were submitted to the judges this year and we are happy to announce that not only were YPS selected as a finalist for our B-NAT shrink film in the ‘Environmental Initiative’ category, but awarded with a ‘Highly Commended’ accolade in the ‘Outstanding Customer Service’ category.
If you missed out this time, don’t worry – we will be back exhibiting our shrink wrapping solutions at the Packaging Innovations show in February 2019. Stay posted for details!
