PA helps Maple increase production

Ready meal supplier Maple Fine Foods, has increased its production output with the installation of a PA182 tray sealer from Packaging Automation. Maple Fine Foods works alongside various catering groups, airlines and hospitals to develop and supply a high quality range of Asian vegetarian, Halal meat and Caribbean ready meals.

Maple who had previously installed a small bench mounted machine supplied by PA for trials, had no hesitation in returning to them for a higher capacity machine when demand for their meals increased. Due to the good working relationship between the two companies, the decision was taken to hire the semi automatic PA182 sealer which Maple later purchased.

PA’s flexible hire to purchase deals are attractive for small to medium businesses, who need to increase their capacity but are wary of investing in expensive machinery in the early days of a sudden surge in product demand.

The PA182 is a semi automatic versatile tray sealer which combines reliability with simple operation. The machine is flexible and fully portable and can seal up to 40 packs per minute.

Alan Sayani Director at Maple Fine foods says “I am very impressed by the reliability, capacity and the speed of the PA182. PA’s support and service from start to finish has been impressive and professional and I look forward to working with their friendly team on future projects.”
