This latest equipment purchase follows a string of investments by The Wilkins Group to increase capacity and enhance the value of its products in the food and textile sectors and to stay at the forefront of a demanding industry.
The Heiber + Schröber WP Master Window Patching Machine has been installed at The Wilkins Group’s UK factory in Colwick and uses up to four different run modes, which will help to increase capacity.
Justin Wilkins, sales and marketing director at The Wilkins Group said: “Following a very successful year for The Wilkins Group, and the inclusion of new business, we knew that we needed to make a few important investments to be able to continue to not only give our customers the best quality of product, but to remain proactive in each individual demanding sector.
“Speed and turnaround is vital in this industry and especially in the food and textile sectors, the way that packaging looks has become vital for so many of our clients. The window patching and lining machine will help us to offer our clients a high quality product that also helps to promote the appearance of their individual products.“

We are reinvesting heavily in the business so for years to come we can stay at the forefront and continue to not only adapt to demanding changes but always be one step ahead.“
