Aegg has invested €1.4million in a complete process for the manufacture of dessert packaging
Creative packaging manufacturer, Aegg, has invested €1.4million in a process to produce injection moulded 140ml brimful capacity plastic pots for a dessert range, available in supermarkets throughout the UK.
To create efficiencies and consistently high quality in the production line, Aegg designed a bespoke automation and packaging solution at its chosen manufacturing site, including the creation of a dedicated cell in a BRC grade A facility.
The project included Aegg building and managing the build of a single cavity tool in order to make trial parts for detailed analysis, before commissioning the build of 16 cavity tools from a number of European toolmakers.
Due to the volume of product required, Aegg designed the bespoke automation and packaging solution for its client at the chosen manufacturing site, which included a dedicated manufacturing cell within an already established BRC Grade A facility.
Aegg committed to two new packaging specified injection moulding machines and all necessary ancillaries totalling €1.4 million of investment, enabling the product to run full time 24/5 with weekend back up in event of any volume peaks.
Aegg’s Managing Director, Jamie Gorman, said: “Our team was chosen based on many factors, which included our client’s belief in our selection of the correct manufacturing partner, tooling and project management ability to produce the required parts, but also our commitment to excellent service levels.”
