Meeting Demand For Universal Supply Chain
We are pleased to announce that we have recently installed a side sealing unit and shrink tunnel into our loyal customer Universal Supply Chain’s distribution centre in Northampton.
Universal Supply Chain are a leading provider of storage, warehousing, distribution and contract packing solutions, offering a full logistical and fulfilment service to the B2B sector. Owing to the nature of their business, Universal requires complete flexibility in their packaging operation in order to wrap a wide variety of products and deliver on many different customer contracts simultaneously.
Having supplied several shrink wrapping machines to Universal Supply Chain over ten years, we were perfectly placed to assist the company with further equipment at the beginning of 2019 when they were looking to increase capacity.
The equipment we supplied was a Hugo Beck Flexo X side sealer and shrink tunnel, an identical line to the one previously fitted. With German engineering and a fully automatic configuration, the side sealing equipment provides robust and reliable performance whilst also keeping labour costs down by requiring less operators. Furthermore, the Flexo X delivers the high level of flexibility that Universal Supply Chain wanted as it offers extremely fast format changeovers on a wide variety of products without the need for any change parts or downtime.
Since installation, Universal Supply Chain have reaped the rewards of the additional shrink wrapping line; capacity has doubled which has allowed them to secure more contracts as well as complete existing contracts sooner, increasing customer satisfaction.
We’ve always received brilliant service from YPS, so when we identified a need to expand our packaging facilities, there was no question over who to approach! Every machine we have purchased has been supported with high-quality servicing and the supply of parts, which is critical in an industry like ours when we have deadlines to meet.
Prakash Mistry, Universal Supply Chain managing director.
YPS managing director Glyn Johnson added:
I am always proud to work alongside successful family businesses like Universal Supply Chain and I’m thrilled that we could support them once again on this latest project to expand their wrapping capacity.
