Ellbee Doors Wrapped With Yorkshire Packaging!

Ellbee Doors - Shrink Wrapping Case Study

Ellbee Ltd supplier of UPVC doors and windows, now known as Euramax Ltd, have had a double installation in their brand new additional factory of two YPS sleeve sealers and heat tunnels.

We supplied Ellbee with two identical 2600mm wide sleeve sealers and shrink tunnels for shrink wrapping a wide variety of their UPVC window and door products.

In order to meet their requirements the standard specification was upgraded in a number of areas as we needed to accommodate shrink wrapping packs up to a maximum weight of 80 kilos whilst also maintaining optimum finished pack presentation.

Due to the width of the equipment, extra wide shrink film rolls are needed to wrap these products and so these can be very heavy and difficult for operators to change over. To accommodate these, we added a bespoke hoist system which ensured that the shrink film roll can be easily lifted and changed over.

So pleased were Ellbee with the new specification that following the installation we have now adopted this as our new standard UK specification going forward.

Simon Wood, Project Engineer at Ellbee explained ‘We chose Yorkshire Packaging Systems because of their professionalism and commitment to after sales backup and service’.

‘It also helped that we were able to take off four weeks from the initial lead time. This was critical in keeping to their deadlines with regards to the new factory. We aim to act as fast as possible to provide our customers with the best level of support in the industry.’ Glyn Johnson, YPS Managing Director.
