Johnsons Stalbridge Linen in Glasgow are the first laundry company to take delivery of our brand new shrink wrapper and they are delighted with their decision to purchase from the original manufacturers of shrink wrapping equipment: Shrinkwrap Machinery Co Ltd.
Alan Mulholland, Group Operations Director comments: We have been a customer of Shrinkwrap Machinery for a number of years and have always been very happy with the service and products they provide. Being an independent local business, we find they are passionate about their business, knowledgeable about their products and care about the after sales service that they provide. Shrinkwrap always fulfil our requirements whether it is for our depots in the South or in Glasgow.
For the past month we have used their new machine which was delivered and installed on time, although this machine sits on a smaller footprint it delivers a higher pack output and uses less power.
We are so pleased with the new machine that have just ordered 2 further machines for two of our sites in the South.
The machine has a number of new features and additions which have all been added with commercial laundries in mind. We listened to our customers and took on their feedback. We’ve been able to greatly improve pack side closure, something that the industry is increasingly demanding, we have improved the energy efficiency of the heat tunnel by reducing heaters, improving air flow and ramping up the insulation to an incredibly high standard.
Speed wise this machine will happily work its way through 1200 packs per hour using a 13 micron film; our progressive infeed machine will increase that to 1500 packs per hour where there is a requirement.
Aesthetically our machine range has had a total overhaul. Smooth lines, clear views and all of this with ease of maintenance access in mind for engineers. The team at Shrinkwrap Machinery Co Ltd are delighted with the end result. Jeremy Frith, Technical Director at Shrinkwrap comments: “I’m really pleased with what we have achieved with our new machine, not just in terms of its performance but also with its design and modern sleek finish”.
MD Peter Frith comments “it’s been really important for us to listen to our customers throughout this process, we have taken on board their feedback and have tried hard to encompass changes they wanted to see for the better. I’m delighted with what we have achieved here as a team and I am looking forward to the future with Shrinkwrap Machinery Co Ltd more than ever”.
