The label division of the company is responsible for supplying products to the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) grocery sector.

The new investment plans have been designed to upgrade the company’s range of labels print and finishing capabilities.

Coveris’ paper division has planned to invest £2m more over a period of three years to modernise its existing machine infrastructure that would provide increased capacity, quality and consistency to its customers.

“The new investment plans have been designed to upgrade the company’s range of labels print and finishing capabilities.”

In 2015, the company launched CPS across the global group.

Since then, the Coveris UK division has introduced its lean strategy across local sites to develop a customer-centric excellence programme that works on the continuous improvement of service, quality and waste reduction.

The company has used its lean strategy, wherever required, to offer significant benefits through machine upgrades, including modernisation of low-energy ultraviolet (UV) systems.

According to Coveris, this has not only enabled a 40% reduction in power but also achieved new levels of safety, productivity and product reliability.

In addition, recent machine interface and improved high-performance servo motor replacements on its flexographic presses have ensured better flexibility, consistency and quality control.
