BT Call For A YPS Shrink Wrapper!
When the packaging systems at the Northern Distribution Centre in Northallerton needed upgrading who else would BT call than YPS?
You will probably already be familiar with the big blue-chip name BT. Their Northern Distribution Centre handles shipments of many products including their highly successful BT Home Hub Broadband Box and BT Vision Box. These are shipped in their thousands on a daily basis direct to residential addresses all over the UK with demand continuing to grow. With the success of their products quite literally on the line, BT needed a shrink wrapping supplier they could trust.
Our latest installation marks their fifth YPS shrink wrapper. The machinery we originally supplied some years ago was two fully automatic side sealing units for wrapping BT products in a high clarity polyolefin shrink film replacing some much older units.
However the real gains came when a number of YPS inline sleeve sealers were introduced over the last few years which has allowed some products which BT had previously been bagging by hand to now be automatically shrink wrapped.
Consequently, the gains for BT were immediate in terms of labour savings as well as providing a much more secure pack for the postal system and so following this success a number of further units were introduced to extend this process.
Danny Grainger, Senior Operations Manager commented ‘The equipment has performed well over the years with this latest installation going as smoothly as before. The ongoing backup and support with the included service contract has been a real key benefit for us and so we have been very happy with YPS’.
Glyn Johnson, YPS MD, continued “Whilst we have been around a long time it’s always nice to have a multiple installation reference with such a well respected blue chip customer’.
