UK based Shrinkwrap Machinery Co Ltd has been a driving force in the innovation and manufacture of packaging systems since 1967. One of the only remaining manufacturers of these products in the UK, the company has maintained a philosophy of providing its customers with the very best quality packaging machinery.
The company has recently completed the installation of 5 bespoke shrink wrapping machines for Huhtamaki (Lurgan) Ltd, the speciality packaging company at their plant in Northern Ireland. The machines complete the reengineering of 9 lines for packaging moulded fibre egg cartons in packs of up to 1 metre in length and 600mm wide. The decision to place the order with Shrinkwrap lay with their commitment and ability to meet the specific needs and requirements of their customer.
Four 1100mm wide dual side entry machines and one 900mm wide single side entry machine were commissioned by Huhtamaki. All 5 machines had uniquely designed side seal units installed to complete the all around seal of the sleeve wrapped pack. Shrinkwrap completed the design, build and installation of the machinery in stages to accommodate the installation of the conveyor and robotic palletiser systems.
Based in Poole, Dorset, Shrinkwrap Machinery Ltd has over 45 years experience in all aspects of shrink-wrapping, de-nesting, tray erecting, tray loading, conveying and palletising, at home and abroad. Founded in 1967 and run by David Frith – one of the pioneers of the shrink-wrapping process in the 1950s, Shrinkwrap Machinery Ltd is proud of its home-grown manufacturing pedigree. David’s sons have also joined the family business and they now manage the design and manufacturing process. Together, the Shrinkwrap team are experts in creating the most efficient packaging system for your business.
