As companies strive for further cost saving and reduction in plastic packaging volumes Gransden respond. “2019 has been an exciting year for Gransden and our Lock N Pop product offering. Customers now need to reduce stretch film and save money, we continue to satisfy both requirements with Lock N Pop” Duncan Potter Managing Director, Gransden PLP Ltd.

Gransdens Lock N Pop continues to offer a solution for plastic packaging reduction. With new installations in the drinks, food and industrial sectors during 2017 and 2018, Gransden has helped reduce plastic usage whilst improving pallet stabilisation.

“Typically companies are finding that they can achieve their objective of reducing plastic packaging with Lock N Pop, AND, reduce operational costs at the same time. Less cost and less plastic is the win:win our customers need”  Duncan Potter – Director Gransden UK Ltd.

Customers continue to benefit from the cost saving benefits of Lock N Pop pallet stabilisation adhesive. A further year of double digit sales growth has been driven by the significant savings made in operating costs at some of the UKs leading beverage and industrial production facilities following their adoption of the Lock N Pop pallet stabilisation technology.

As customers seek to find innovative solutions to their distribution processes, Lock N Pop yet again proves that financial, environmental and operational cost savings can be made with Gransdens solutions.

Managing Director Duncan Potter states “It is no surprise to see Gransdens revenues rise as we continue to focus on giving existing and new customers a way to reduce costs and improve operating profit with the unique benefits of LOCK N POP. 2019 offers us a further chance to build on the success of 2018 and to introduce LOCK N POP to new market sectors within UK manufacturing”

Despite a weak UK economy Gransden Packaging Line Products, the Cambridge based distributor of packaging line equipment is looking at 20% sales growth in 2012.

Gransden has been operating under new management for 18 months and is seeing improved trading with existing customers, new customers beginning to buy its products and better uptake of its service offering.

Managing Director Duncan Potter said: ‘Business conditions are not easy so we are focussing very tightly on real opportunities and ensuring that we don’t waste time where there is no potential. However we are seeing positive signs and we hope to reinforce our sales team and out sub-distributor network in 2013.’

W&H Marriages and Sons Ltd (www.marriagesmillers.co.uk) is a proud independent miller and has been producing flour since 1824. It operates from a site in Chelmsford where space is very much at a premium and it needs to stack pallets of bags of flour several layers high after production and before they are shipped to its customers.

Mill Manager, Phillip Bunn, wanted to ensure that Marriages’ pallets were stable in storage and transit so that its customers could be confident that every delivery would be 100% complete and undamaged. Stretch wrap alone did not seem to be sufficient so he approached Gransden Packaging Line Products (www.gransden.org) for advice.

Gransden is the exclusive UK distributor of Lock N’ Pop pallet stabilisation systems and recommended that Marriages install a two headed automatic in-line system. This system applies a controlled quantity of Lock N’ Pop adhesive to Marriages’ bags. This adhesive is water based and has a high shear but low tensile strength which fixes the pallet load for lateral movement but enables easy lifting of bags from the pallet.

Because of the unique formulation of the Lock N’Pop adhesive the bags themselves are undamaged when the bags are separated by the customer.

The Lock N’ Pop system has been running for over 6 months now and Phillip is delighted. He says: ‘I am really impressed by the stability of our pallets; customer feedback has been positive and we are seeing no damage to our product in transit to the customer.’
