Due to continued growth and success, linerless label innovators, Ravenwood Packaging, is expanding its HQ in Bury St Edmunds.
The site is currently undergoing an expansion programme to make way for some much needed additional space.
The project is well underway and is set to complete in the New Year. Their existing warehouse is being converted by way of a mezzanine which will pave the way for a new split-level facility comprising coating room, dedicated training area, new workshop, stores facility and office space to accommodate Ravenwood’s rapidly growing workforce. The new-build will be extremely spacious – industrial but contemporary in design.
The new coating room will boast a clean and dust free environment for coating linerless labels. Ravenwood’s Comac 500 machine enhances the appearance and finish of a label surface. Adding a protective layer helps improve the printability and safeguards against UV and moisture. There will also be a new training room, featuring state-of-the-art facilities. The new area will provide extra space for hosting seminars and conducting training sessions, tailored in line with the needs of individual engineers and operators. They’ll also be room to house more of the company’s ‘Nobac’ flagship applicators for demonstration purposes. Ravenwood’s workshop and stores facility will also be relocating to the new build. The company’s ‘pre-loved’ department offers refurbishments of existing machines from touch screen upgrades to full rebuilds. The extra space will allow Ravenwood’s engineers to work on multiple applicators at any one time. And last but certainly by no means least is the new office space which will make way for new Director’s offices and provide a new home to their centralised support functions – purpose-built facilities for their sales, marketing and accounts divisions.
2017 is set to be an exciting year for the company as they prepare to unveil a new linerless technology at the next Pro2Pac. Pro2Pac will be held at London’s Excel, 20th – 22nd March and is the UK’s only food and drink packaging event. Read the full news story.
