McLaren invests for growth

Inverclyde, Scotland-based McLaren Packaging has enlisted the help of strapping and wrapping machinery specialists, Mosca, to enhance its service offering. The converter has an existing stretch wrapper purchased from Mosca over 10 years ago. More recently, an additional turntable stretch wrapper – a WTM3 – from Mosca’s automatic stretch wrapping machine range was purchased, for use at the 150,000 sq ft production facility.

Owing to the vast array of products and sizes that the packaging manufacturer stocks and distributes, they required a high-quality machine that could cope with the variety and speed of goods they package for distribution. Mosca were able to deliver the perfect solution.

Jim Marshall, Technical Director at McLaren Packaging explained, “We have been dealing with Mosca for 18 years and when we required a new stretch wrapper they sold us a WTM3 machine which ticked all the boxes for our needs.”

The WTM3 model has a patented quick load system, photocell height sensor, programmable top wraps and advanced speed variation turntable to accommodate the wrapping and delivery of products. At the Inverclyde production site, finished products are boxed and stacked onto a pallet ready for the stretch wrapper to apply plastic wrap to the entire pallet, protecting and securing it ready for transportation or storage.

Mosca Direct’s Sales Manager, Rob Toolen, comments, “Their decision to purchase a second WTM stretch wrapping machine from us is a positive testament of their continued confidence in Mosca’s equipment and people. At Mosca, we strive to provide industry leading solutions and to support our customers. By doing so, we grow with our customers.”
