40% of orders for shrink wrap machines for the first half of the year can be attributed to export, which is a rising trend. Further export business is in the planning stages and we’ll report on that hopefully later on in the year.
New Shrink Wrap Machine Installations at Kings Laundry in Ireland
One of our new export customers is Kings Laundry, who now have two commercial laundry sites in Ireland; their original site in Dublin and now the new facility in Cork which opened in June 2016. The first order was placed with Shrinkwrap Machinery for a new sleeve wrapper to replace an existing one at the Dublin facility. Based on the performance of this machine, further orders were to be placed for Cork with a second machine for Dublin.
When asked about the overall experience of buying equipment from Shrinkwrap Machinery Co Ltd, MD for Kings Robert McGovern comments: “it really has been excellent, the equipment and overall service received has definitely exceeded my expectations. The packing speed at Dublin has doubled, the machine is incredibly efficient and has worked brilliantly since day one of its installation with no issues at all. I was so pleased with the Dublin installation that I placed my order for the 2 shrink wrap machines for Cork and a further new machine for Dublin immediately.”
When asked what stood out in the buying process for Robert he said “dealing direct with Peter Frith as the Owner/Operator of a manufacturing business was a real bonus and instilled confidence about the whole business transaction.
The fact that the equipment has been designed and built specifically for the laundry industry was a complete bonus and represented excellent value for money. These shrink wrap machines exceed in every way possible delivering an excellent pack presentation, at speeds up to 25 packs per minute in a compact space and they look pretty good too!”
Robert McGovern is delighted to highly recommend Shrinkwrap Machinery to other businesses looking for shrink wrap machine equipment.
Shrinkwrap supplies and supports a number of European customers with packaging equipment and has recently seen regrowth in business in the Middle East specifically in the food and drink industry.
