06/06/2016: Case study: Packaging machines for bespoke products


First published in Milling and Grain, March 2016

When demand for bread and cake mixes called for new facility, it also posed the challenge of how to package these bespoke products  G.R Wright and Sons became a FAWEMA customer when in 1973, they took delivery of their first automatic bagging machine for flour.

What was to become a long and fruitful relationship initially between Ken Wright, (the current Managing Director David Wright’s father) and FAWEMA’s family owners, begun when Petzold & Company, FAWEMA’s UK representatives brought the two enterprises together.

This relationship continues today after more than 43 years. Since 1867 Wright’s have established themselves across the UK as millers of the finest quality flours, and throughout this time they have built a strong relationship with FAWEMA with more and more packaging lines added in subsequent years.

It was after Wrights had developed what was to become their highly successful range of bread (and later cake) mixes in the 1990s, that David Wright and Production Director Alan Cave naturally came to FAWEMA again in 2014 for specialist high speed packaging equipment.

Sales of this revolutionary product range outgrew the current location in the mill, so they decided to invest in a multi-million pound new build at Delta Park, Enfield conveniently located just minutes from the mill.

This new facility features a state of the art test bakery, training workshops with a product development team that can be made available to customers, plus of course a packaging department with two new high speed FAWEMA bagging lines that fulfill the latest demands of the UK supermarkets.
