The 900 C3 acquisition is part of a wider investment in its gluing operation, which also includes the purchase of a Brausse Forza 1100 C3 folder gluer and new glue systems with the latest monitoring capabilities.

The company’s investment in its gluing department will enhance its efficiency, enabling it to ensure that customers receive cartons finished to the highest pharmaceutical standards (ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001).

The new Brausse equipment is compatible with Glossop Cartons’ existing machinery, and the 900 features the latest technology in carton gluing.

Says sales director Jacky Sidebottom-Every: “The investment in our gluing department is the latest stage in Glossop Cartons’ continued investment programme, and will help us to continue to improve our carton offering, sustainably delivering both improved lead times and enhanced quality, which is what customers want in these extremely competitive times.”
