UK-based KernPack has entered an agreement to sell and distribute Italy’s General System Pack (GSP) flow wrappers and packaging systems across the UK and Ireland.
KernPack will provide the GSP systems, which include standalone machines and fully automated lines, to food producers and bakeries, as well as non-food related companies.
KernPack general manager Pete Jolley said: “GSP’s global recognition and proven track record, coupled with its technical innovation, were the main reasons it was a perfect fit for us.
“We wanted to strengthen our wrapping offering to the food and bakery industry and GSP will enable us to offer customers a complete range.
"We believe we can achieve the same success in the UK that GSP currently enjoys elsewhere around the world, focusing on customers’ continual need to become more efficient and achieve an excellent return on investment.
“GSP’s customer-centric philosophy was also a great match with KernPack’s exceptional customer service culture, for which we’ve become well known.”
The company currently distributes and maintains specialist packaging solutions for various industry sectors.
General System Pack general manager Corrado Pozzer said: “Our partnership with KernPack opens up the UK and Ireland market which is an exciting prospect for us, as we continue to grow market share in Europe and beyond.
“Combining our technical excellence with KernPack’s best-in-class commitment to customer support and maintenance, gives UK customers a highly attractive package to consider.”
GSP currently provides flow wrappers, high-speed automated lines, and end-of-line packaging and controlled atmosphere applications for various sectors.
