We are delighted to announce that we have recently installed a new state of the art 2.5m BHS Corrugator at our fully integrated plant in Birmingham, with its first start-up on the 23rd of September 2019. This is part of our commitment to remain on the cutting edge of corrugated packaging technology.
After years of research, hard work and planning we managed to find and source the perfect corrugator to start the next chapter in our growth. This new corrugator replaces our ageing 2.2m BHS corrugator we purchased second hand 9 years ago. This latest corrugator is capable of rapid production speeds of up to an amazing 300m / min.
We also invested in extra cutting-edge amenities to further improve productivity of the machine such as waste management, uplifting and fully automated corrugated sheet stacking.
After an extensive testing period, our new corrugator is now fully operational and running at its full potential. This highly advanced corrugator has shown a significant increase in the board quality we are now producing, at much greater speeds. Giving us the ability to improve our product options, work efficiency and speed up our lead times. We can now produce board fluting; B, C, BC, E, EB, R.
We want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of our loyal customers for putting your trust in us over the last 22 years and bringing us to where we are today. Your main contacts such as account managers, enquiry team, sales team, design team… and everybody else here at CBS Packaging is driven to give our customers the utmost level of service and product quality. This commitment is stronger than ever during this exciting time.
With your continued support we are approaching our goal of becoming one of the largest independent corrugated packaging manufacturers in the UK.
Managing Director Jitha Singh on this latest investment:
“The successful start-up of this new corrugator marks the next phase in the exciting development and growth of our family business. My brothers and I together with our team here have been on quite a journey over the years and are delighted to have been able to replace our previous BHS corrugator, which was second hand when we bought it nine years ago, with a brand new corrugator which is the first model of its kind from BHS Corrugated installed in Western Europe.
The machine will add new flute profiles and combinations to our market offering whilst significantly increasing productivity potential, quality and efficiency across our business.
The improvements seen in board quality have resulted in an uplift in our converting output, our customers have reacted very positively and we are already seeing significant reductions in waste compared to our previous machine.
The crew have taken to the machine well, we are already producing more than the old corrugator and are excited about the months ahead as we look forward to offering new products to existing and new customers.”
This major investment, along with our 22+ years of experience supplying corrugated packaging, our established professional team, state of the art machinery and future investment plans will enable CBS Packaging Group to offer unrivalled product quality, service levels and value to customers across the UK.
