Casemaker Investment Set to Enhance Customer Offering
23 Feb 2018
Midlands based Cases24 has committed to a significant investment for a latest generation Latitude PP1025 three colour casemaker, with Dücker pre-feeder and load former.
Cases24, a uniquely positioned, trade only case supplier, operates out of Board24’s Coalville site offering trade customers across the UK high volume glued cases in a variety of specifications, backed by excellent reliability and speed to market.
This latest investment, driven by customer demand and market growth will allow us to offer enhanced print and die cut capability coupled with excellent lead time consistency throughout peak demand.
The new casemaker will complement the existing three Latitude casemakers already on site and will be installed in Q3 2018. This announcement comes just three months after a £600k investment to install a new material handling line, designed to facilitate the introduction of this fourth casemaker.
The continued growth of Cases24 has been recognised with the appointment of Alex Morris as Managing Director of Cases24. Alex has been at Coalville since 2009, most recently as Board24 Sales and Marketing Director. Responsible for operations, commercials and sales, Alex will bring increased focus and support, as he leads the team through this exciting phase in it’s development
Alex comments; “This latest addition to the machinery portfolio at Cases24 will reinforce our position as the leading trade supplier of cases in the UK. This will underpin our offering by increasing capacity and reducing lead times, especially during peak demand. With an installation of September, this will be ready for our customers during the busiest time of year in 2018 Q4.
“Our Trade customers operate within a dynamic marketplace. This investment will offer enhanced print and die-cut capability, all backed by our industry leading reliability.”
Cases24 is part of the Logson Group, the largest UK-based group of corrugated packaging companies. Collectively the Group employs over 950 people and turns over £200m annually.
