What they asked us: How can we automate our materials handling process and improve efficiency in our food processing site?

Whitham Mills Engineering Limited, the Manchester-based automatic cardboard baler supplier, has secured a new order from the market-leading breakfast brand, Weetabix at their Northamptonshire site.

This install is the latest in a long line of success for Whitham Mills in the manufacturer sector and features a fully automatic cardboard baler (GB1108FSS) supplied with a bin tipping solution and a bale roller track to automate the process and improve efficiency at Weetabix’s leading food processing site all with a two-year warranty.

The new GB1108FSS is fully automatic and able to process up to 4 tonnes per hour of cardboard. Compressing a variety of materials including both paper and cardboard, it can produce bales weighing around 600kg and measuring 1100mm x 750mm x 2000mm.

Whitham Mills Managing Director, Ben Smart, commented on the big manufacturer contract:

“Whitham Mills aims to build on our longstanding reputation in the waste management equipment market as being one of the best suppliers of equipment. We constantly strive to improve our customer service and learn from each and every install. Weetabix was a great win for us and expands our portfolio of British food manufacturers such as Arla Foods, GlaxoSmithKline and Diageo.”
