UK-based Sandland Packaging has taken the next step in its growth plans, installing an MD-Ultra fully-automatic stitcher/gluer – the first of its kind in the UK. With a running speed of 5,000 per hour, it is set to replace existing machinery and significantly improving turnaround times. The machine was sold and installed by ID Machinery.
Martin Hickman, Managing Director, said, “As a growing business, we’re always focused on improving our capability for our customers. This new investment automates stitching and gluing, making us more efficient. The bottom line is that our customers will get their packaging faster.”
