Crabtree, a Gateshead-based manufacturer of metal decorating equipment has recently completed a contract for an Australian food and beverage packaging company. Providing surveying and decommissioning services on a second-hand tin and aluminium packaging machinery, the manufacturer worked on behalf of Interpack following its purchase from the original owner in New Zealand.
“We have developed a close relationship with Interpack over the course of this project – which began from a short conversation and ‘just an idea’ – and are delighted to have supported the company on this initiative. The project has once again shown that our experienced team have the knowledge to successfully develop solutions that can optimise equipment of all ages, in the field. We look forward to continuing our work with Interpack through the provision of technical support, parts and training,” said Alan Rutter, senior director at Crabtree.
Once the work was completed, it recommissioned the machinery and put it into production at Interpack’s site in Australia. Moreover, Crabtree also provided training in production to Interpack’s staff.
“From the initial decommissioning and commissioning stages Crabtree supported all aspects of the refurbishment and rebuild. We put Crabtree to the test with ordering new parts during the project and the response time was fantastic, right from the service desk and administration through to the machine shop and despatch,” added Jason Jones, plant manager at Interpack.
