Our Company History

 Wrapping & converting Systems Ltd was formed in 1994 when a gap in the market was identified for a progressive company with a friendly, no fuss approach to industries packaging problems in particular users of shrink wrap film.

Our philosophy of providing a ‘one stop’ procurement source means that we not only supply new, used and refurbished equipment, shrink wrap film and a comprehensive nationwide back-up service but we also can arrange to have customers’ products contract packed as well as providing free advice on all aspects of packaging and pack design.

Our range extends from manual bench top machines to semi automatic machines right through to fully automatic lines with feeders and collators.

We have years of experience in the UK nationwide installation, commissioning, refurbishing, maintenance and Service of new and used machinery and packing solutions. In fact, we have 25 years experience and counting. Wrapping & Converting Systems Ltd was originally Advance Packaging Machinery which and was established in Hyde, Cheshire in 1985. Cheshire is an ideal location, centrally situated and well served by motorways. At that time we dealt solely in new shrink wrapping machinery and shrink wrap film.

We changed our name in 1994 when we expanded from purely selling new shrink wrapping machinery and shrink wrap film to also providing engineering back up both on site for breakdowns/servicing and in – house to refurbish all types of packaging machinery and not just shrink wrapping machinery. A move to larger premises just a few hundred yards away from where we first started also allowed us not just to have workshop facilities but also enabled us to stock a wider range of shrink wrap film.

We had called the engineers out to a breakdown on our Chamber Shrink Wrapper, when the repair was completed the engineer suggested that the main problems on our machine were all caused by using film that was poorly manufactured whereby the fumes that condense on contact with metal were leaving a sticky residue which in turn effected the sealing process. They left us a free trial reel of their PVC Shrink Film, there was not only much less fuming but also it turned out much cheaper than the film we were previously using.    –   John, Colour Printers, South Wales

We were always having problems sourcing a good quality POLYTHENE SHRINK FILM that we could buy in smaller quantities, it was great to find a company that had it on the shelf, would supply as little as 10 reels at a time and use only virgin polymers to ensure that the film does not stick to our seal bar or tunnel rollers.  –   John, Bottling Plant Owner. Oxford

The sales staff were excellent, they came in ,viewed our product and discussed our need. We very quickly received a detailed proposal for manual, semi auto and fully auto Shrink Wrapping Machines. We decided on an auto line and have never looked back. It wasn’t as expensive has we thought it would be and its sped up our dispatch and released staff to do other things.  –  Andy, Production Controller, 12 Jars in a try, Co Durham
