With a growing number of businesses considering automated packaging systems in order to improve warehouse efficiency, Antalis Packaging has formed a strategic partnership with the UK’s leading equipment leasing and finance supplier, Johnson Reed, to offer customers a new machinery leasing service.
Automated packaging solutions such as pallet stretch wrappers and carton erecting machines can deliver significant long-term savings. However, for some businesses, the initial capital outlay can be prohibitive.
Antalis Packaging’s new service, Antalis Commercial Finance, has been created specifically to provide customers an easy route to obtaining the right equipment for their packaging needs, without impacting on cash reserves.
With flexible finance options available, the cost of the purchase can be spread across regular fixed repayments which are agreed in advance and repaid over a period of three to five years.
Scott Tuckey, Packaging Product Manager for Antalis Packaging, comments: “Through our partnership with Johnson Reed, we can help customers access the best packaging technology that is available in today’s market. By spreading the cost, there’s no need to compromise on quality or be restricted by budget. Customers can get immediate use of state-ofthe- art packaging equipment and start seeing substantial efficiencies within their operations.”
Johnson Reed Leasing Manager, Ian Gage, adds: “We are excited to be launching this new finance option to Antalis Packaging’s customers. With our support, the businesses that take advantage of the new service will have the tools to operate more profitably and efficiently.”
In addition to the cost savings and efficiency benefits incurred by having automated packaging solutions in place, every lease payment can be 100% allowable as a tax-deductible expense, reducing the overall cost of the purchase.
