UK-based Yorkshire Packaging Systems (YPS) has provided its shrink-wrapping system for Gopak, an educational furniture firm.

The newly installed machine has been dedicated to bundle flat-packed products that are put out for delivery by a carrier network.

The less bulky and more effective method of wrapping will also allow Gopak to deliver its products without incurring any damage during transit.

In addition, the YPS machine has transformed the efficiency of Gopak’s dispatch area and has reduced the number of items damaged in transit by 60%.

"Our expertise has allowed us to deliver excellent results, which we hope will continue to positively impact the business for years to come."

Yorkshire Packaging Systems managing director Glyn Johnson said: “Our work with Gopak is a great example of our drive to find bespoke solutions to common customer challenges.

“Our expertise has allowed us to deliver excellent results, which we hope will continue to positively impact the business for years to come.

“We are confident we can scale up our solutions as they go from strength to strength; we always work towards long-term efficiencies and partnerships for our customers.”

YPS further noted that as part of its collaboration with Gopak, it has initially provided a hire machine to demonstrate the capabilities of the company’s machinery and film offering.

Gopak managing director Andrew Fieldwick said: “We weren’t convinced that our furniture could survive the carrier network with just polythene to protect it, but YPS has proved us totally wrong.

“We’ve made great savings in the cost of packaging materials and warehouse space, along with the obvious importance of providing improved customer satisfaction.

“Throughout the whole process YPS has given great support and taken time to fully understand our particular requirements.”

The company currently manufactures lightweight, folding educational and community furniture.
