A major horticultural company based in Kenya has praised the quality of service and equipment offered by the UK manufacturer, Packaging Automation Ltd, after purchasing a PA182 tray sealer. MPI distributes Packaging Automation’s equipment in Australia.
According to AAA Growers, which specialises in growing, processing and exporting fresh vegetables to the UK, Europe and South Africa, it would not hesitate to recommend Packaging Automation to other companies.
The PA182 tray sealer, which is operating in the AAA Growers' newly installed vegetable facility in Thika, has brought with it a host of benefits, including increased capacity, improved operational efficiency and superior product presentation.
The PA182 tray sealer is now being used alongside other Packaging Automation equipment to pre-pack an extensive range of fresh produce including peas and corn, sweet corn, and mixed vegetables in tens of thousands of packs a week in total. These packs are exported to the UK and onto the shelves of many well-known retailers.
As one of Packaging Automation's popular machines, the PA182 semiautomatic, hand turned, rotary table machine, is used throughout the food industry and is widely accepted for its ease of use, reliability and quick tool changes. PA182 tray sealer’s robust construction and versatility are coupled with a hygienic design, which eliminates bug traps.
The PA182 tray sealer has enabled AAA Growers to respond to emerging and changing trends in product packaging as required by many of the UK and European retailers. The PA182 tray sealer is ideal for AAA Grower's needs, –as it is reliable in operation and comes with a layout that makes it easy to access critical parts for cleaning.
In addition, the level of customer service provided by Packaging Automation has received praise despite it being thousands of miles apart from AAA Growers.
AAA Growers is pleased with the equipment that Packaging Automation has supplied and the company certainly did not hesitate to go back to them when the need for a new machine arose.
