SEALPAC is delighted to announce it has become the sole UK distributor for Sleegers Technique and their high-tech slicing, interleaving and modular production lines.
Sleegers, based in Holland, is a leading international supplier of automated solutions. With customers across the world, the company’s range helps manufacturers to increase the speed of the production line, achieve greater accuracy, reduce waste and manage the growing labour shortage.
From slicing to interleaving and underleaving, weighing and stacking to packaging, the company has extensive experience in working with the full spectrum of food products. This includes fish, fresh meat, cooked and cured meat, bread, cakes and cheese, as well as ready meals.
Commenting on the partnership, Kevin Witheford, managing director at SEALPAC, said: “We’re very excited to be working with Sleegers and to be bringing their pioneering offering to our UK customer base.”
He continued: “We know that the single greatest challenge facing food manufacturers today, is the shortage of labour. For many, the situation has now reached crisis point, with uncertainty over Brexit and the weak pound only exacerbating the problem.
“Understanding these pressures, and with a strong commitment to our customers and supporting their ongoing success, at SEALPAC we have been looking for innovative solutions and ways we might provide added value.
“Through this partnership with Sleegers, we are able to do just that and as we’ve seen from the many manufacturers across the world who are already using their systems, the returns are often quick to be realised.”
A key benefit to the Sleegers’ technology is that it can help standardise production and maximise yield and OEE, all while assisting manufacturers to future-proof against economic uncertainty.
As well as the core product range, for food manufacturers with a particular problem that needs solving, Sleegers’ experienced team will work closely with them to create a bespoke solution, putting their superior engineer expertise to full use.
