Bardsley Farms have been expanding at an exponential rate over the past decade and their latest development sees a revolution of their packing lines. Out goes the old equipment and in come the state of the art packing lines from one of our premier suppliers; BURG.
Ben Bardsley, the Managing Director, had a vision to future proof the packing process and has introduced five new lines spanning the three disciplines; flow wrapping, hand lines and poly bagging. This diversification has ensured the company is able to keep pace with the constantly changing requirements placed upon them.
A brand new BURG 3D POLSAP now stands pride of place; one robot serving five lines. The cutting edge robot has a very high capacity, allowing preferential feeding to high throughput lines and also dedicated safety zones, if hand feeding of imported product would be necessary at the same time as British fruit. This allows the customer to have maximum flexibility whilst remaining as productive as possible. Furthermore, bin nesting is an additional option, saving space and time.
After months of planning, the equipment arrived on site and was put in place and ready for initial testing within one week. No hyperboles needed here! The 5th line was brought forward due to Bardsley Farms growing order volumes and adds yet more capacity to an already high throughput enterprise.
BURG's exceptional customer service has been invaluable during both the planning process and installation; tailoring their machinery to suit the customer's needs. Their expert engineers, along with Kent Fruit Services', work tirelessly to make the customer's visions a reality.
We at Kent Fruit Services hope our partnership with Bardsley Farms continues long into the future and look forward to our next project together.
