Vertical Bagging Success Stories

Pearson Foods | Fresh Produce

Pearson Foods, an innovative fresh foods company located in Grand Rapids, MI, recently added the Hayssen ISB vertical form-fill-seal bagger to its fresh produce packaging lines, which also feature legacy Hayssen Ultima baggers.

After months of watching and measuring, Pearson determined that it can run the ISB bagger 18-22% faster than the other older machines on site.

Pearson Foods' new 19-year-old ISB operator—who had no previous packaging equipment experience—learned to effectively operate the machinery within 2 days of training, which was made even easier as the ISB can be switched to Spanish with the simple push of a button.

"The machine is intuitive," Nelson said. This combination of intuitive design and ease of operation makes the challenges presented by labor shortage and high employee turnover a non-issue.

Flow Wrapping Success Stories

The Killer Brownie Co. | Bakery & Confectionery

–Chimene Mayne Ross, The Killer Brownie Co.


The Nutrition Group | Bakery & Bars

When the Nutrition Group PLC, a contract manufacturer of protein bars, set their sights on being the UK's biggest producer of protein bars, they knew they would need to ramp up their production.

In 2018, the Nutrition Group began looking for a partner to help them increase their capacity and meet their customer's demands with a new flow wrapping solution.

–Richard Greathead, Nutrition Group PLC


Bag Filling & Palletizing Success Stories

East Point Potatoes | Produce Palletizing

East Point Potato, a successful family-owned potato packaging operation, has experienced steady growth since opening its doors in 2009, and today they package potatoes for upwards of thirty farmers on Prince Edward Island. Their packaging operations began as manual labor, but the increasing workload meant they needed to explore packaging solutions to help them meet demand. They turned to SYMACH palletizers.

"We've run this year from 7am until 11pm, five days a week." said Boyd Rose, co-owner of East Point Potato, speaking of the increased production the SYMACH palletizers have provided. "I would have a tough time finding crew that would pack bags on a pallet for those types of hours."

Equipment: SYMACH Palletizers


Boyd Rose, East Point Potatoes

"We were hand-packing everything from a 10-pound paper bag on a pallet to 50-pound bags, so it took upwards four or five people to do that. It was a labor-intensive job, so we said there must be some way of getting this done more efficiently and we chose SYMACH. If you have a market you're going to supply, you have to be competitive; you have to be able to turn on a dime and do different things, do different pack sizes and the palletizer has certainly helped us do that."

–Boyd Rose, East Point Potato


The Honest Kitchen | Pet Food
