Project details:

  • GB1108 Channel baler with D blocker 
  • 1500mm Incline Feed Conveyor
  • Small Vertical Plastic Film Baler

Sector: Retail & Distribution

What they asked us: “How can we increase our payload from our cardboard bale export market?”

“Whitham Mills supplied us with two new fully automatic balers and feed conveyors. I can say how pleased I am with the Whitham team’s problem solving, ‘can-do’ attitude and the quality of the equipment and support service they provide. I would be happy to endorse that they do what they say they can.”

Head of Procurement at Poundland

The problem faced by Poundland before the Whitham Mills install was their old balers were struggling to produce tonnage so they were not maximising the potential returns of their exported cardboard. On top of this, they had an aging system with ever increasing downtime.

Whitham Mills completed a full site survey and devised a completely bespoke recycling solution for Poundland which included a new GB1108 fully automatic cardboard baler alongside a Whitham Mills feed conveyor which feeds directly into a oversized hopper and a D-Blocker installed ensuring downtime is kept to a minimum and they get maximum tonnage in each and every bale.

This project was a multi-site install where by two fully automatic cardboard baling systems were installed. The outcome for Poundland is they are now exceeding 20 tonnes per hour across the two sites and constantly producing bales in excess of 750kg.
