September is always, without fail, a busy month at Packaging Automation as we head towards our year end and 2021 was no exception! In addition to year end we hosted the Manufacturers Alliance twice, attended the PPMA exhibition, inducted our new Apprentices and had a plethora of new starters, read on to find out more….
As a member of the Manufacturers Alliance, we have the opportunity to host a member visit so this month we gave them a factory tour and took the chance to show case our Virtual Reality experience – it’s fair to say the visitors were bowled over by the experience.
Neil Ashton, Dave Woolrich and Scott Roebuck were also interviewed by the Manufacturers Alliance in September about the launch of our new machine, the evolution S, we’ll share more about this soon.
This month we attended our first live exhibition in over 18 months and despite Covid and the fuel crisis we saw lots of customers and had some really worthwhile conversations. You can find out more about our attendance at PPMA Show 2021 here.
During September we welcomed 4 new starters, welcome to #TeamPA
· Alex Dyler – Service Engineer
· Darren Astbury – Service Engineer
· Jack Wright – Stores Assistant
· Calvin Mottram – Service Engineer
This month the Projects Team dispatched machines to the NEC in Birmingham ready for #TeamPA to exhibit and demo the machines at PPMA Show 2021.
We also had machines dispatched all over the world to USA, Europe and across the UK including to Scotland and Derbyshire.
