Stacey's Bakery of Ilkestone purchased one of our refurbished flow wrappers using a government grant. This meant they could release labour from hand packing bakery products to help satisfy a large contract they had secured and still have plenty of grant money left over to invest in other areas of the business. A lot of small and medium size companies buy our equipment this way.
We work with Portman Asset Finance and can arrange a competitive quotation but a lot of companies have their own preferred source of funding and we can also liaise directly with your bank, loan company or grant authority to make sure all the paperwork and details are correct and everything goes through painlessly.
The last decade has seen some significant changes in the packaging machinery industry. Whilst the increasingly competitive market for new machines has pushed quality downwards, the inevitable squeeze on machinery suppliers margins has meant a noticeable reduction in backup and support. Many manufacturers have introduced light weight entry level machines and are now more interested in selling you another "cheap" short lived flow wrapper than looking after the machine they sold you just a few years ago. That's why our refurbished and upgraded flow wrappers make so much sense - you get a heavy duty, long lasting, well built machine, operationally transformed with modern internals at a budget price and with expert backup and support.
