Daniel Graham, Director of Liverpool, UK-based West Coast Corrugated Ltd, has confirmed the company recently placed an order for a two-colour Latitude P660-618 miniline. Ordered in early February, this will be the third Latitude flexo converting line to be installed at the privately owned company – the casemaker will be installed in October.
“This machine, which is part of a £1.5m investment project, is being added to accommodate the growth we have seen over the last 12 months,” explains Daniel Graham. “As well as the new casemaker, we have recently completed the installation of a significant solar panel system on the roof of our facility, which is helping us reduce our overall carbon footprint as we now generate a large proportion of our electricity needs using this sustainable solution.”
“West Coast join a select group of corrugated manufacturers in the UK that run three or more Latitude lines,” adds David Williams, Managing Director, GTS (Europe) Ltd — Latitude’s UK and Ireland agent. “These machine are premiere league in terms of build quality, reliability and performance. We are delighted that West Coast have once again chosen Latitude.”
Daniel Graham concludes, “We have been very happy with our existing Latitude lines and this third machine is a continuity of the good relationship we have with Latitude and GTS.”
