Shrinkwrap Machinery Co Ltd are celebrating their 50th year in business and what better way to do that by launching a brand-new Monobloc Shrink Wrapper onto the market in 2017?
The decision for Brexit sent initial shock waves across the business community, we saw changes in exchange rates and customers and enquiries demonstrated a keenness to move away from European purchases toward a strong desire to buy British. However, in the field of mid range shrink wrapping machines, few were to be found.
Customers are either faced with a European import from Italy, Spain or Germany perhaps or purchasing a machine that has its origins in the Far East with the back up and support of a British company – (but for how long?).
We were presented with a dilemma, as a company who have been great fans of importing machines from outside the UK to fit a particular market, it is becoming less financially attractive to do so. We have long thought that we would love to produce a machine to compete in that market and Brexit has given us that opportunity to do just that.
There is of course more upside to ‘Buying British’ than just finances alone, locally based back up and support is key purchase criteria for most. 50 years of building high speed machines and working with a diverse range of businesses, both customer and suppliers, has given us an enviable knowledge base which we can apply to all that we do.
To many customers, the knowledge we have been here for 50 years and have no plans to go anywhere soon, is vitality important to them in terms of the future proofing of their own businesses.
Cutting a long story short!
We’ve designed and built a mid range Monobloc Sleeve Wrapping Machine capable of wrapping up to 15 packs per minute in a small and compact footprint, which is ideal for lower to medium volume production.
