With average lead times for new equipment often being 2-3 months, food manufacturers may be worried that it is too late to increase their processing and packing capacities ready for the Christmas rush. Not so for Loma customers, thanks to its new QuickShip™ programme – which guarantees fast delivery of food-grade IP69K certified inspection equipment.

Following analysis of their customers’ order history, Loma now stocks systems capable of handling 80% of food application enquiries. One recent happy customer was IPS Contracting LLP, certified BRC Grade A confectionery co-packer, who handle up-to 80 products at any one time and packages in excess of 35,000 tonnes per year of snacks, sweets and chocolates into cartons, bags and flow wraps.

Technical Director Steve Kay at IPS Contracting comments: “We’ve just taken delivery of two stainless steel high speed checkweighers within 21 days of placing the order; it’s not uncommon to wait up-to 8 weeks for premium food-grade inspection equipment which meets the demanding hygiene protocols we adhere to. Working with suppliers who can quickly react to our needs is paramount and why, as an industry-leading manufacturer of inspection equipment, Loma is our supplier of choice.”

Loma Sales Manager Tony Bryant comments: “When customers experience volume peaks before Christmas and on receipt of a retail contract, they expect a rapid turnaround from order to delivery. To achieve this, we now carry stock of our most popular products, guaranteeing detector head delivery within three days, metal detectors within 14 days and Combination checkweigher units and X-ray systems within three weeks.”
