More Shrink Wrappers For Growing Kingdom!

Kingdom Cheese - Shrink Wrapping Case Study

A third YPS shrink wrap machine has been delivered into the Cowdenbeath factory of Kingdom Cheese. As one of Scotland’s premier cheese suppliers and dairy businesses, Kingdom Cheese have two distinctly different operations on two sites that are immediately adjacent to each other.

Kingdom Cheese supplies mainly food service wholesalers and pizza chains within the pizza sector in the UK, Ireland and Europe with Mozzarella cheese, and Cheddar mixes.

Kingdom Dairy is also an extremely diverse dairy manufacturing business with customers including major supermarket chains, food service wholesalers and food manufacturers supplying products such as cottage cheese, soft cheese and cultured creams such as Soured Cream and Crème Fraiche.

Following strong growth over the last few years, a total of three fully automatic side feed stainless steel shrink wrappers have been supplied for wrapping mainly trayed products.

The shrink wrapping equipment we supplied was upgraded to full stainless steel specification due to the wet working environment where mild steel would not have been sufficient.

In addition, the shrink tunnel belt was also upgraded to incorporate side chains to prevent the belt from stretching over time, compared to the more common friction driven system.

John Mullen, Kingdoms Managing Director says “We have been more than happy with YPS equipment and the backup and service provided from YPS which is why we have bought three lines from them in such a short period of time and have made the conscious decision to purchase all further shrink wrapping lines from YPS”.
