The Lakes Free Range Egg Company, like us, are a long established family run business. Their area of business is a high quality supplier of eggs to the leading supermarkets in the UK. Their aim is “to profitably supply free range eggs to the highest quality, animal welfare, environmental and ethical production standards”. The environmental benefits of shrink wrapping over other alternative methods of packaging, such as boxes, made this their preferred method of packaging for the transit of their eggs. Shrink wrapping is more environmentally friendly as less packaging is used and what is used is 100% recyclable.
Following success with their two existing YPS machines they looked no further than to us again when their increases in production required an additional line. The machinery which we supplied was our SVAL 60×35 Inline Sleeve Sealer and TR65/150 Shrink Tunnel. A double chamber shrink tunnel was required in order to cope with the output speeds required and the size of the packs.
The benefits to The Lakes Free Range Egg Company are a significant increase in production and productivity, common spare parts across all lines and reliable back up and support from YPS.
Jonathan Lodge, General Manager, The Lakes Free Range Eggs, commented on the installation “We have enjoyed working with YPS due to their professional and easy to deal with approach to business. Once again they have supplied us with a robust and reliable solution as we would have always expected.”
“For us it is always a pleasure working with another family run business such as The Lakes Free Range Egg Company we wish them all the best for their business and will continue to offer them high quality back up and support and service.”
