Leading agriculturalists install Pacepacker’s winning bulk packing and palletising equipment.
Recent winner of six industry awards for high value engineering, company strategy and export growth, visitors to Pacepacker’s LAMMA stand 233 Hall 2 will see new vegetable packing technology, as well as bulk bagging and palletising turnkey equipment solutions already in use at many agricultural and animal feed packers including Preva, I’ Anson, Fred Hartley, and Walter Harrison’s.
Users of Pacepacker’s award winning technology include premium potato packer Preva Produce where a Pacepacker production line now bags and palletises ten 10-25kg sacks of potatoes per minute. Historically Preva packed their potatoes manually via third party co-packers as explained by Managing Director Ian Anderson: “Outsourcing our packing operation was not only cost prohibitive but it provided inconsistent pack quality due to human error and didn’t give our business the flexibility and growth options that we desired. Understanding the quality and efficiency gains that could be made by bringing the packing in-house, we chose Pacepacker for their knowledge of automation, to design and manufacture a system which would provide a premium looking pack with very little waste. Their value for money line has made our new plant highly efficient.”
