Fibre King have supplied the entire end of line packaging systems for a US100M+ plant expansion in Asia. The client is a US based Pharmaceutical Company, demanding high standards of equipment reliability, performance and quality.
The project included three new packaging lines and Fibre King covered case packing, check weighing, coding, palletising and interconnecting product and case conveyors and also a depalletiser for an order of over AUD4M.
Fibre King carried out stringent pre-shipment testing, including a 10 day FAT with 6 of the client’s representatives from the USA, UK and the local Asian site. After successful testing, Fibre King shipped nine 12 metre containers of machinery, which were installed.
According to Earle Roberts, CEO, Fibre King, despite the strong Australian dollar and tight engineering and trades labour market, Fibre King were able to secure large export orders. Pharmaceutical clients demand high standards in terms of equipment quality, service and documentation. These requirements teamed with the high cost of downtime on production lines have helped Fibre King to improve their standards.
The Fibre King team has worked hard over the last decade to raise their performance in the traditional case packing and palletising markets. Fibre King have also started to work in new areas, such as meat and fresh produce.
Fibre King have offset carbon emissions from electricity, company vehicle and air travel in 2007, and have also reduced water consumption in 2008.
