Total Success For YPS At TOTAL Show!

PPMA 2019 Team YPS

Between 1st and 3rd October 2019, thousands of visitors descended on the NEC in Birmingham to discover the latest trends and innovations in packaging and processing at the PPMA Total show. As stalwarts of the event, of course we were amongst the exhibitors once again! We are now pleased to report that following an extremely successful show, we have acquired and are now working on a large number of exciting wrapping projects and enquiries.

Our stand this year displayed a full range of shrink wrapping equipment, from entry level to high-speed, high-end machinery, and for a variety of different applications. The Hugo Beck ‘Servo X’ and ‘Flexo X’ high speed side sealer models stood pride of place at the front of our exhibit, showing off their robust German manufacturing and intuitive controls and both generating a lot of interest from passing visitors. The newly-introduced Masterplat stretch wrapper from Robopac, for whom we are now a UK distributor, also amassed a lot of attention from visitors who stopped for a working demonstration. The collection was completed by a complete sleeve sealing line and the our new pizza capping tabletop equipment.

As well as a machinery offering, we showcased the unique, fully recyclable, OPRL-approved B-NAT bio-based shrink film, along with a variety of wrapped product samples. As a direct result of the PPMA show, we have now arranged many film trials with new visitors who were impressed by B-NAT’s eco-friendly credentials.

A further success at this year’s exhibition was the ‘Find the Expert’ programme launched by PPMA, for which our managing director Glyn Johnson was selected as the shrink wrapping expert.
