Select Packaging Systems and G Mondini have recently installed a new $2M Microwaveable Cup Filling Line at Heinz Australia’s New South Wales facility.
The original project brief required Select Packaging Systems and G Mondini to design an integrated packaging line for the Heinz range of 430g plastic tub microwaveable soups and meals. The line was to be installed at one of Heinz’ New Zealand facilities but due to strategic reasons, had to be quickly redesigned and relocated to the organisation’s New South Wales facility at the last minute.
According to Aaron Arthur, Engineering Manager, Heinz Australia, design had already been completed and delivery for New Zealand was only three months away when various issues prevented from going ahead with the original plan.
G Mondini immediately redesigned and adapted the integrated system and Select Packaging Systems set about organising the appropriate contingencies for delivery and installation. The redesign process and installation of the system in Australia extended the delivery time by 2 months and still allowed to produce stock before the 2008 soup season.
This early delivery impacted Heinz outcomes in a positive way, enabling them to deliver all output targets to date.
