A.M.P Rose – The Packaging and Processing Machinery Specialist

Established over 35 years ago, A.M.P Rose is one of the world’s leading machine builders, process and packaging solutions provider for the confectionery, chocolate and snack industries.

A.M.P Rose has evolved and developed immensely since its humble beginnings in 1978. It has managed to transform from a small supplier of rebuilt packaging machines for the confectionery industry, to a greatly successful machine builder with international renown and nearly 75% of its products being exported to over 80 countries world wide.

The wide range of new machines include cut and wrap machines for all styles of wrapping, chocolate moulding lines, chocolate wrapping, specific machines for production and packaging of hard candies, laboratory range for trials and small-scale production, as well as revolutionary feeding systems for multi-packing flow wrap machines.

Recent Addition

One of the more recent additions to the A.M.P Rose family is the ‘700/1000’ chocolate moulding line. It is available in multiple widths to suit specific customer applications and outputs. The depositor is capable of producing centre-filled products through the ‘one-shot’ method. Centres such as caramel, praline, fondant etc. can be used. It can also produce chocolate slabs with whole nuts and raisins, or with finely chopped inclusions.

The ‘750/755’ range is an extremely versatile yet low-cost cut and wrap machine which offers production speeds of up to 750 pieces/minute.

The moulding lines are from modular design, which gives them flexibility for any changes that a customer may want to do to the line in the future. Some of the changes that can be achieved include extending the cooling tunnel if the customer decides to change the product going through the line, or if they need to add a biscuit or wafer placing unit in their production. This flexibility gives consideration to a company’s future growth, and fast moving market changes that chocolate manufacturers need to adapt to at any time.

Of all the equipment A.M.P Rose produce, the specialist skill is in the design, manufacture and operation of cut and wrap machinery. The secret is not just in the production of the machine, but in adapting it to suit the different product and wrapping material characteristics that can be encountered.

The ‘750/755’ range is an extremely versatile yet low-cost cut and wrap machine which offers production speeds of up to 750 pieces/minute. The machine is capable of producing confectionery products such as bubble gum, hard candy, chewy sweets and toffees in various different wrapping styles. As well as the traditional double twist or folded ends, versions of the 750 can also produce lollipops, products with a visible design (‘whirl’ machine), cigarette style wraps, and also long bars up to 152mm in length.

Exciting Developments

2016 has seen some exciting developments in the company, as they have moved into a new purpose built factory in early January 2016. The new factory has over 100,000 sq/ft of floor space incorporating all departments – machine design featuring 3D CAD/CAM software, a modern machine and fabrication shop with CNC machine tools, software design department, metal finishing as well as electrical and mechanical assembly and testing areas.

This is not the only change of 2016 as the company logo has been changed. “We believe that this more modern design reflects our growth and professional approach to business,” says Adam Malpass, Marketing Manager. “In addition it signals a new beginning for the company and the next chapter of the company’s history.”

Coinciding with this, a brand new website had been launched as well, with the aim to make it easier to use and help to showcase the company’s capabilities as a premium supplier of food processing and packaging equipment.
