McCain Foods (GB) selected Versapack case erector and case packaging machine for Ready Baked Jackets

McCain Foods (GB) selected Versapack case erector and case packaging machine for Ready Baked Jackets
June 8, 2015
When McCain Foods (GB) Ltd. launched Ready Baked Jackets in 2012, the product proved so popular that by 2013 the company needed to add a new line to its Scarborough facility. This gave McCain a great opportunity to invest in its end-of-line process.

Choosing Versapack from Quin Systems was an easy decision. Compact, fast, reliable and scaleable, Versapack is a case erector and case packing machine that has a far simpler set up and operation than conventional systems.

McCain’s engineering and training teams were impressed with how little time it took to get Versapack installed and meet the very stringent site acceptance tests required.

“I was very pleased with the planning and attention to detail of the Quin Versapack. It met McCain’s high quality standards,” said Jim Crookes , the Project Engineer for the Bakes Line. “The machine is very easy to operate and change over from one product to another,” added Training Officer Terry Machin.

“We are delighted that McCain chose Versapack to improve end-of-line packing for this product,” said Quin Systems MD, Mike Webb. “It is a unique machine for the market, and appeals to increasing numbers of manufacturers who want to improve the speed and reliability of their case packing without expensive refurbishments or extensions.”
