Carton Edge kicks off five-year plan with triple install

Carton Edge has commissioned three new investments at its Coventry factory as the first stage in a five-year plan to make the trade converter more responsive to ever-shorter lead times

The business has commissioned a Brausse TA110 gluer, a 1050E cut/crease press and an Esatec MT/6B pick and place patcher in the first stage of a programme that will, it said, “create a resource that can quickly respond to urgent demands for carton finishing brought about by retailing pressure” on lead times.

Carton Edge welcomed Mark Pawsey, the Rugby MP who is chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on packaging, to witness the commissioning of the machines.

The new installations, which have been supported by funds from the Regional Growth Fund and the European Regional Development Fund, which have been arranged through RBS Lombard and Coventry City Council, will allow Carton Edge to extend its services into cut/crease for plastic cartons.

Carton Edge chairman Eddie Owen said: “This is a very exciting time for the business with implementation of the new equipment increasing capacity to enabling us to better serve our customers with a faster turnaround, while the die cutter will take us into new markets.

“A broader one-stop shop for carton finishing is what we are striving to achieve and these investments are a major step towards that goal.”

The investment follows a recent move to a new factory and investment in tray forming machinery to serve the growing number of ready-meal, bakery and sandwich products.
