Ideal Standard Achieved With Shrink Wrapping!

We hit the mark again with the installation of our third wide automatic inline sleeve wrapper to Ideal Standard – within just twelve months!

Ideal Standard are the world’s premier producer of bathroom products and are the home of leading brands such as Armitage Shanks and Trevi.

It is with great pleasure that we were able to supply their Hull-based factory with a 2.6 metre wide inline sleeve sealer and shrink tunnel to shrink wrap shower enclosures and doors, quickly followed up by a 1.5 metre wide system for their range of shower bases.

So pleased with our machinery were Ideal Standard that when shrink wrapping equipment was later required for their Middlewich site to wrap complete toilet assemblies, they looked no further than to YPS again.

This third line was the same width as the second shrink wrap machine supplied to their Hull factory, measuring 1.5 metres in width, although it has a much higher aperture to be able to accept the larger product.

This equipment was upgraded by us in a number of key areas to cater for packs up to a maximum weight of 80 kilos and provide high optical properties for on the shelf display.

John Goodwin, senior operations manager for Middlewich explained. ‘It helped that YPS had such a clear understanding of our needs and so specification through to installation and training was extremely smooth. Staying with YPS was an easy choice and we are as pleased with this line as Hull has been with their two units.’
