H & A order new rinser


As business continues to flourish at H & A Prestige in Chorley, a new rinser was required for line 2. The choice of an Enolmeccanica 24 head air or water rinser with penetrating nozzles at speeds of 6,500 b.p.h., to be supplied by Makro Labelling UK, was made for the versatility of the machine which is being specially adapted so that it can handle bottles from 70ml up to 1.5 litres.

Richard Portman, Managing Director of Makro Labelling UK said, "We have been working with Enolmeccanica for some time now, they are an innovative supplier of rinsers and capping machines at very affordable prices. We are continuing to develop our UK agency business that includes offering a range of rinsers, fillers, cappers, de and re palletisers, capsulers and other packaging equipment that make up a complete line and we will be announcing some exciting developments about our agency business in the coming months. Because of the nature of H & A's business as a contract packer, any piece of new equipment must be versatile in terms of container size, allowing for quick changeovers and very reliable. Contract packers by their very nature only earn money when the lines are running efficiently, unscheduled down-time is not acceptable to them. Part of the contract also includes some special infeed conveyors to be supplied by partner Dogliotti."

Lee Tayburn, Group Engineering Director said of this latest order, "We have developed a strong relationship with Richard and his team, who have always been very attentive when we have purchased any equipment in the past. The installation and after-sales and service has always been first class, and as the business continues to grow we value the relationship between us."
