Expanding SME invests millions in new technology

Charpak Ltd News and PR from Charpak Ltd - Published 17 August 2018 Charpak's latest Kiefel KMD78 thermoforming machine is part of the company's multi-million development programme.
This latest new equipment is in addition to 2 Illig RD53D machines in the first six months of 2018.

The company's 5 year investment plan is well underway, with the third new Kiefel KMD78 thermoforming machine commissioned in June 2018. Their new thermforming machinery includes up-stacking, down-stacking and pick-and-place/robotics. The perfect combination of 3-station and 4-station machines ensures the highest quality packaging, and bespoke designed packaging meets the stringent ISO 9001: 2015 standards.

Following the addition of a second warehouse facility in 2017, automated stackers, and a suite of metal detectors throughout the production facility Charpak's Quality Assurance is accredited to BRC Grade AA Global Standard for Packaging.

On 30th August 2018 an additional Kiefel KMD78 will be commissioned growing the company's capability to 16 state-of-the-art machines. Charpak's investment in new machines increases production capacity over 600,000 units a day from the Kiefel KMD78s alone.

Kevin Edwards, Production Manager, is proud of the level of commitment by the business in both machinery and in building the expertise in the Production Team advising:

''In addition to the investment in machinery, I'm delighted to welcome Kelly Paddington-Hughes, Production Planner to the team. With over 7 years of production planning experience Kelly's comprehensive review of production planning has moved the company forward leaps and bounds in improving process flow, planning and manufacturing efficiencies, ensuring our agile service and market-leading production times are better strengthened to meet our clients' fast turnaround times.''
