Food and Drink Matters is extremely proud to present Proseal UK as its selected Tray Sealing Machines Manufacturer of the Month.
A dedication to producing quality products, offering exceptional service and providing complete packaging solutions is what has led to Proseal becoming the market leader in the UK. Its extensive range of manual, semi-automatic and fully-automatic tray sealing machines with throughputs from 6 to 240 packs per minute have satisfied customers’ needs around the world since 1998.
Proseal UK was set up by directors Steve Malone and Robbie Hargreaves with an aim to become an innovative and pioneering organisation within the fast paced food industry. Now, 18 years later, the company has not only become the leading manufacturer of tray sealing machinery and tooling in the UK, but is recognised as a major force internationally, having extended its operation into a number of sites overseas.
Its headquarters and design and manufacturing facility are based in Cheshire and Proseal also has subsidiaries and manufacturing facilities in North America and Australia and agents in South America, Chilli, Holland, Belgium, Dubai and Spain with plans to expand to Asia.
“With many years’ experience in the tray sealing industry, we have a deep understanding of the demanding production requirements to which machinery in this sector is subjected,” commented Anthony Burgess, Head of Sales and Control Systems at Proseal UK Ltd. “Combined with the high level of after sales service we provide, our business continues to go from strength to strength.
“We take pride, not only in producing a range of high quality, efficient, cost effective tray sealing machines, but also in providing a service that surpasses our customers’ expectations. Our reputation is founded on excellent customer services and the ability to design and produce consistently reliable machines.”
Proseal machines focus on cost, quality and sustainability with the ability to meet food manufacturers’ demands for efficiency, flexibility and quality in their tray sealing operations.
The newest machine in the ever growing range is the Proseal GT2e. The high speed, tray sealer is capable in excess of 120 trays per minute and combines Proseal’s innovative E-seal® electric sealing technology along with the many proven functional and reliability benefits of Proseal equipment.
A major benefit of the ‘e’ design is the machine’s flexibility in being able to handle any type of tray including atmospheric, MAP, Vacuum MAP, Skin, Skin Plus and Skin Deep. Users can simply select the features they require and these can be added or removed at any time. This allows food manufacturers to change their pack formats in line with customer demands and market trends without having to invest in new equipment.
Proseal machines are the fastest on the market with the smallest energy footprint. Dedicated to the reduction of energy consumption the company never scrap old models, just works to improve and restore them.
“If we come across a new innovation we ensure this is installed into all our old machines as well as the new ones,” explained Anthony. “When our customers invest in a Proseal machine they can be sure that they are getting the full package. All have access to new technology and we have a regular upgrade programme so customers can benefit from new features without having to keep buying new machines.
“Unlike our competitors, our focus is on doing the right thing for the customer. We ensure they are getting the most out of their equipment in the hope that when they need to invest in new or additional machinery, Proseal will be their first point of call.”
In line with the Courtauld Commitment, a voluntary agreement aimed at improving resource efficiency and reducing waste within the UK grocery sector, Proseal has reduced packaging options by a third, by providing the know how to transform plastic heavy solutions, such as rigid clip on lids into top seal. The company also strive to improve shelf life extension for products in the UK and beyond.
“As the UK market is already advanced in this area,” continued Anthony, “Proseal has grown with it over the years and we have taken this knowledge and experience to locations overseas that are not so developed.”
This along with a superior level of customer service is why Proseal has become the first choice for thousands of customers. Every problem that occurs is responded to as quickly and efficiently as possible with an aim to resolve it on the same day.
“We do everything we can as quick as we can. We understand the importance of this machinery to our customers and that it needs to be back up and running as soon as possible. Our service attitude is second to none and we make sure we only appoint agents who have the same approach.”
“Our plan for the future,” concluded Anthony, “is to double in size as a company and in reputation. We previously did so around 4 years ago and feel we are now in a great position to double again. Our main focus is on the UK market but we are also looking to continue our work to improve product shelf life internationally.
“We are all about our customers and we strive to continue to deliver an exceptional service along with superior products that stand the test of time.”
Proseal UK will be attending Foodex on the 18-20 April 2016 where they will be showcasing the new GT2e.
