UK independent now has two lines in and running
Neil Price, Managing Director of Leamington Spa, UK-based The Box Factory, confirms the company has been busy growing its turnover, thanks to the installation of two Latitude flexo folder gluers. Having taken delivery of its first four colour Latitude casemaker in 2014, the company recently took delivery of a second Latitude line, complete with Emmepi Group bundle strapper in the summer of 2017.
“Our company is based in two manufacturing sites and two finished goods storage sites in close proximity,” explains Price. “We took on a dedicated unit for our higher quality work, where we installed the first Latitude, complete with bundle strapper and palletiser. Within a matter of 12 months, we knew we were going to need to increase our capacity in that unit, so we took the decision to order a second Latitude line, but this time a three colour machine. With both machines in and running, with dedicated materials handling and end of line strapping supplied by Emmepi Group, the volume of work being generated in that one unit is impressive.”
Price concludes, “The whole project has been handled by GTS (Europe) Ltd. David Williams and his team have done a great job at specifying the best equipment to allow maximum productivity from the site. We overcame some challenges due to configuration of the factory and the outcome is first class.”
