Flowrappers supplied by PFM PACKAGING MACHINERY (Leeds, West Yorkshire) are ensuring that McGhee’s Bakery in Glasgow can capitalise on a major expansion in its core central Scotland wholesale market, which includes the foodservice sector, independent retailers, cash and carries, local authorities and education establishments.

McGhee’s co-owner, Ian McGhee, explains: "Our new bakery is a huge development, with the most up-to-date bakery plant and processes. So it was vital that our packaging should be upgraded to reflect the image of the company that we are now portraying."

The company has bought two identical PFM high-speed Hurricane servo-controlled horizontal flowrappers in the last 10 months to add to the three it had already been successfully running. The Hurricane, PFM’s most versatile machine, achieves a maximum speed of 60 packs per minute.
