The £33m group is a key independent packaging factory based in Nottingham, specialising in producing packaging for textiles, food – chilled and frozen, confectionery, toiletries and household products.
A Heiber + Schröber WP Master Window Patching Machine has been installed at The Wilkins Group’s UK factory in Colwick and uses up to four different run modes, which will help to increase capacity.
Justin Wilkins, sales and marketing director at The Wilkins Group, said following a successful year for the company, new investments were required to be maintain a quality and remain proactive in each sector.
“Speed and turnaround is vital in this industry and especially in the food and textile sectors, the way that packaging looks has become vital for so many of our clients. The window patching and lining machine will help us to offer our clients a high quality product that also helps to promote the appearance of their individual products.”
After a successful year last year, this latest equipment investment has followed a £2m investment in a printing press and £300,000 in a new foil-blocking machine.
Wilkins added: “I have said before that following a successful year we are now putting in foundations all over the world for future growth. We are reinvesting heavily in the business so for years to come we can stay at the forefront and continue to not only adapt to demanding changes but always be one step ahead.”
