Sparck Technologies is to be the new name for Packaging by Quadient, following the acquisition of Quadient’s Drachten-based packaging business by Amsterdam investment company Standard Investment.
As Sparck Technologies – which is exhibiting at Robotics and Automation 2021 (Stand 508) – the automated packaging business will continue to provide advanced CVP Everest and CVP Impack automated fit-to-size packaging systems to customers in Europe, the USA and the UK.
Jo Bradley, business development manager for Sparck Technologies in the UK, said: “With the backing of Standard Investment, we are in a strong position to drive further growth of our CVP automated packaging solutions in the UK market.
“Many e-commerce businesses face escalating challenges when it comes to building capacity within their fulfilment operations. Our technology goes a long way to solving many of those issues and this move will enable us to further support those pressing market needs.”
With the capability to tailor-make up to 1,100 packages per hour, for multiple or single items, the CVP Everest and CVP Impack packaging systems offer automated solutions for e-commerce operations challenged by increasing order volumes, labour shortages and rising shipping costs.
With installations in more than 13 countries, both CVP automated packaging solutions create, fill, fold and label parcels in one process, reducing package volumes by up to 50%, cutting cardboard usage by 30% and eliminating the need for void fill.
Herbert Schilperoord, partner at Standard Investment, said: “The fact that parcels are automatically made exactly to size at great speed by machine, with such precision, has made a huge impression on us and we are confident that this technology will be the go-to packaging solution for the e-commerce sector.”
Sparck Technologies (Stand 508) will be at Robotics and Automation 2021 on 02-03 November at the Coventry Building Society Arena. For more details, go to www.roboticsandautomation.co.uk
