Scent Packing Sniffs Out Overwrapping Value
Post date: 31 July 2008
Scent Packing, a new UK company set up to package perfumes, has just taken delivery of a new Marden Edwards Evo-Fold overwrapper.
Scent Packing is the brainchild of Glenn and Nathan Griffiths and has been set up to contract fill and pack signature or celebrity fragrances. As with all perfume and fragrance manufacture and packing, all aspects of production must be of the highest quality to ensure that the finished product is perfect.
Because Scent Packing are a new company it was important that every purchase represented exceptional value for money.
Crucial to the success of fragrance packaging is the quality of the overwrap. Not only does it protect the high quality carton within it but it also acts as a demonstration of the quality of the product as a whole.
Scent Packing purchased the new fully automatic Evo-Fold perfume box overwrapper. Competitively priced, the UK manufactured Evo-Fold produces the same high quality wrap as other machines in the Marden Edwards range. For perfume box overwrapping it is essential that the folds are crisp and that only the tips of the end fold are sealed. This is straightforward to achieve on the Evo-Fold which can run at speeds up to 40 cartons per minute.
The alternative to purchasing the Evo-Fold was to buy second hand. Nathan takes up the story, 'We needed a machine that was going to provide a really high quality wrap but did not think that we would be able to afford a new one. We were worried about purchasing second hand since there would be no guarantee regarding wrap quality and it was difficult to gauge how running efficiency might suffer. We were really impressed when we saw the Evo-Fold and the excellent value for money that it offered'.
