Robotics and automation specialists, RMGroup, has announced a unique partnership with Lachenmeier®, a brand of the leading global transit-packaging provider, Signode. The move will see RMGroup become the preferred supplier of stretch hood machines in the UK.
As part of the agreement, RMGroup will also be able to provide their UK customers with service and support for the stretch hood machines from their existing network of fully trained engineers.
Lachenmeier is one of the leading global packaging machine providers. In servicing a broad range of market segments and as part of Signode APT, their product portfolio includes high quality stretch hood, orbital stretch wrap machines and strapping equipment, all of which are manufactured with the aim of boosting operational efficiency and profitability.
“RMGroup is a young, dynamic company with a can do attitude – a company who hold similar core values to the Lachenmeier business,” said Tony Butler, key account manager, Signode APT Europe. “We very much look forward to strengthening our ties as we move forward together.”
From their 50,000 sq.ft. mid-Wales factory, RMGroup designs, manufactures and supplies a wide range of manual and automatic packaging machinery, packaging systems and robotic automation to a customer base spanning food & beverage, horticultural, aggregates, chemicals and agricultural industries. The company’s service packages cover a wide-ranging toolbox of support options and can be configured to suit customers’ equipment and requirements.
Commenting on the partnership, Edward Pugh, RMGroup’s sales director, said: “Lachenmeier is an ideal partner for the RMGroup, providing us with an excellent range of stretch hooders to add to our portfolio in support of our UK customers. And with the ability to provide service and support for the machines, as opposed to Lachenmeier engineers having to fly in from Denmark, we can provide a reactive response service at very short notice, thereby saving our customers potential downtime and costs.”
