The investment at Kingsland Drinks continues apace, the company have been investing steadily over the past years. Kingsland have just placed an order for their third Makro Labeller, this time it is for a Makro MAK 3 Ua3L3 3-station labeller. The machine also has the capability to apply Tamper Evident U-Seal for Kopparberg Gin at 9000 b.p.h.

The labeller will be able to handle 10 bottle formats including round, oval, flask, 187ml wine and reverse taper brandy bottles. The MAK 3 will be applying self-adhesive body/back/neck labels. The new labeller will be installed along with a new MBF filler bloc. This latest order, where a Makro labeller has been installed with an MBF filler, mirrors a number of orders that have been placed in recent months.

Richard Portman, Managing Director of Makro Labelling said, "We have developed a great relationship with Kingsland since we installed our first labeller there. As a company they have been growing and our after sales and service has been a key element in helping us to gain further orders, coupled with of course the performance of the first two labellers installed. Being a Co-Packer Kingsland need just the sort of developments that we have installed on all our Makro units, such as quick changeovers, optical orientation and an excellent ROI."

The new machine is due for delivery in June.

Richard continued, "Makro is now entering its tenth year in Italy. With over 900 machines operating in the field globally the Wine and Spirit industry have been key partners for us, and this latest order is testimony to the close understanding of what our Wine and Spirit customers require."
