YPS Were The Right Fit for Hammonds Furniture!


YPS Were The Right Fit for Hammonds Furniture!


"YPS made every aspect of our purchase simple and ensured that the equipment suited our requirements exactly. The factory sign-off was the quickest and smoothest Ive ever done!"
Dave Linforth, Production Engineering Manager



Yorkshire Packaging Systems Ltd, the UK’s leading supplier of shrink wrapping equipment, are delighted to announce their installation of a wide inline sleeve wrapper and shrink tunnel into the Hinckley-based factory of Hammonds Furniture.

Hammonds Furniture are the UK’s premium supplier of custom-built fitted furniture for the UK’s bedrooms, kitchens and home offices. With more than 90 years experience in their industry, they are known for delivering only the best solutions in storage and furnishing, with beautiful designs, superior quality, expert craftmanship and scrupulous attention to detail. 

Before contacting YPS, Hammonds were already protecting their boxed components of fitted furniture with shrink wrapping, ready for shipping to their network of UK fitters. In fact, the demand for their furniture is such that the company were using as many as five separate shrink wrapping lines. Early this year, Hammonds noted that their existing machinery was coming to the end of its useful life. As well as replacing it, they hoped to secure better ongoing UK back-up and support.

Hammonds always conduct extensive research before investing in important equipment. As such, YPS arranged for Hammonds to visit several installations at their existing customers’ sites, before accompanying them to their factory to see the equipment in manufacture. Impressed by what they saw, Hammonds placed an order for a 1600mm wide inline sleeve wrapper incorporating a low level film holder and additional guarding, as well as a shrink tunnel. Full factory acceptance tests were completed and agreed within only three hours, which Hammonds were particularly impressed by.

The benefit of this shrink wrapping solution for Hammonds has been the ability to now wrap larger products than ever before. Furthermore, the process is now faster and more efficient. The extended service contract package that YPS included now guarantees the increased peace of mind for back up and support that Hammonds required.

Glyn Johnson, YPS M.D. continued ‘I am pleased that we’ve been able to offer Hammonds Furniture a machine that can accommodate their entire product range and future-proofs their operation. I hope they will choose YPS again for any further shrink wrapping needs.’
