Two new packing lines have just been installed at its Ipswich facility and were specifically designed to handle work for a new customer, Growing Success Limited.
The Growing Success contract is expected to increase productivity by 28 per cent this year, with scope to alter the line to package a wider variety of products at low costs for companies across the UK.
The new project has been backed by Lombard and NatWest.
The new line packages products including blended powders and granules that treat garden pests that are manufactured on line and filled into a wide range of bottle and container sizes, capped, labelled and packed ready for dispatch.
The second line installed handles liquids by taking active ingredients and blending with water to produce ‘ready to use’ garden pest treatments. Also combined into the line is an automatic labelling unit.
The products are all made from environmentally friendly ingredients. The packing lines only require two operatives per line, and can be modified to either extremely high or low output requirements.
