PPMA 2008 report

The PPMA is the trade association for suppliers of processing and packaging machinery in the UK. It represents over 350 member companies. In 2009 the PPMA president will be Alan Yates of Endoline. Along with Reed Exhibitions, the PPMA stage an annual showcase for processing and packaging machinery. The exhibition gives the opportunity for a large number of visitors to see and review a huge variety of different machinery and suppliers. This year, the 20th annual show, was opened by Lord Digby Jones, minister for Trade Investment.

Loveshaw attracted a large amount of interest in the products on display. In particular the all new Pallet Master semi-automatic turntable Pallet Wrapper, was extremely well received. One visitor was heard to comment "it's by far the best pallet wrapper at the show," another said "an excellent pallet wrapper, versatile and obviously designed with a thorough knowledge of the stretchwrap market and what is required,"

Loveshaw like to remind people that the Pallet Master Pallet Wrapper promises:- Reduced Maintenance Costs, Improved Safety, Reduced Operator Complexity and Increased Reliability.

"Although we felt that foot-fall at the 2008 exhibition was less than previous years (perhaps a reflection of current economic difficulties), we conducted some quality and meaningful business," said Kevin Green the Loveshaw General Manager. "Assisted by other contacts in the industry, we were able to add a new, quality, distributor in Scotland. The exhibition gave us the opportunity to clearly demonstrate the superior quality, robustness, and ease of use of our Little David Case Sealers compared to the Siat (M.J.Maillis) range of dual masted case sealers." Stuart the MD of the new distributor SNAPCO, stated "I was sceptical at first that Little David Case Sealers were that different from anyone else, I mean, a taping machine is a taping machine. However, after a thorough product briefing and demonstration by the Loveshaw sales manager, I was convinced that Little David Case Sealers were the way forward. We are now able to supply top quality case sealers and microjets. I look forward to a long and meaningful business relationship with Loveshaw Europe."

To borrow a phrase from the PPMA, 'Quality is key to success of PPMA show'. A sentiment that Loveshaw whole-heartedly agree.
