Hayssen Flexible Systems has introduced a new manufacturing value stream to cater to the growing demand for its flow wrappers.
Utilising Lean Manufacturing methodologies, the new manufacturing value stream launched at Hayssen's South Carolina factory in the US would complement its existing facilities in UK and Italy.
The new addition would double Hayssen's flow wrapper manufacturing capacity.
Following the launch of its 'Point of Sale - Point of Manufacture' initiative, the company believes that customers value having their machine manufactured at and supported from a factory in their region.
Hayssen recently acquired Schib Packaging in Italy, which it believes has jumpstarted its flow wrapper business. The acquisition enables it to offer an extended range of packaging lines for bakery, candy, cutlery, pharmaceutical, produce, chocolate bars, automotive parts and more.
It also debuted a high-speed packaging system integrating a Schib CO-90 candy wrapper with a Simionato Logic VFFS bagger at the ProSweets show recently.
Headquartered in Duncan, South Carolina, Hayssen and a member of the Barry-Wehmiller packaging automation group, Hayssen has manufacturing and technology centres in the US, the UK and Italy.
