Lancashire’s Clayton Park Bakery has installed an Ulma Packaging packing line to cope with demand for its products.

It has invested in two of the company’s Atlanta Hi-Tec horizontal flow-wrappers for its second purpose-built bakery at Accrington, which is producing items including bread rolls, finger rolls, cakes and vanilla slices.

Ulma’s equipment can safely wrap a whole range of different-shaped products in any configuration, while maximising visibility on retailers’ shelves.

The bakery is owned by James Hall & Co and supplies Spar, Booths, sandwich shops and market stalls across the east of Lancashire as well as many of the region’s football clubs.

Clayton Park Bakery’s managing director Barry Thomas said: “Prior to obtaining the Atlanta flow-wrappers I went along to a couple of companies to actually see Ulma‘s machines in action. I was very impressed with what I saw and the ease of set-up. We did look at various other options from previous equipment suppliers, but the functionality of the Ulma equipment swayed us and the price was right as well.”

Ulma’s Atlanta flow-wrapper has a touchscreen operation with multi-product memory, which means that changeovers can be made quickly. The machine also benefits from ‘no product – no bag’ and ‘misplaced product detection’ systems, as well as working with clear and printed film.
