Laila’s Fine Foods Ltd is a successful family run business, specialising in authentic, ready prepared meals for both the food service and retail markets. Laila’s started their 6 year relationship with PA with a small tray sealer but when their business grew and throughputs needed to be increased they purchased SL4 tray sealers from PA’s eclipse range.

The eclipse SL4 has been designed to address the environmental impact of packaging operations by reducing the user’s power consumption by up to 90%. The in-line, fully electric SL4 is a small footprint machine capable of sealing 60 packs per minute.

Featuring PA’s PowerdriveTM technology, the SL4 is a fully electric machine and operates without using any compressed air, therefore offering savings of up to 98% of the running costs of conventional pneumatically operated tray sealers. This enables ready meal producers to demonstrate a real commitment to environmental issues, whilst delivering a competitive operating cost.

Mark Richardson General Manager at Laila’s said “Laila’s Fine Foods have enjoyed a six year relationship with Packaging Automation, starting with a single machine, PA were able to heavily modify their design to suit our processes. We have continued to grow with PA, buying a further two machines. As our business has increased, PA have been able to support our growth with new machines and unparalleled service levels and we have just taken delivery of two new high speed sealing machines taking us to five PA lines and in fact a complete PA site. PA is now looking at new processes to help us to progress and keep at the forefront of this competitive arena.”

Background

Packaging Automation Ltd was established in 1963 and is a leading UK manufacturer of tray sealing and pot filling and sealing machinery.

PA can offer customers a tray sealer or pot filler for a wide range of applications in the food industry including fresh produce packing such as salad, tomato, strawberry and soft fruit packing, fish, seafood, meat and chicken packing (including vacuum packing and skin packing), ready meal sealing and packing, and pot or tub denesting, filling and sealing for puddings and sauces.
