Jaymar Packaging, the carton manufacturer, has invested in its third Bobst folder-gluer to boost capacity at the Crewe-based business.

The new machine, a Bobst Ambition 76 folder gluer, will complement existing Fuego and Mistral lines at the 35-year old, privately-owned company.

The Ambition 76, which will be installed in March 2012, is an A1 variant of the folder-gluer and can handle both straight-line and crash-lock cartons.

Craig Street, director at Jaymar Packaging, said the company's third folder-gluer will play a "key role" in the further success of the business.

He added: "We will be running it alongside our existing highly specified Bobst Fuego and Mistral lines and it will run our more straightforward work, freeing up the Mistral and Fuego to run the complex jobs that they handle so well.

"It means we will have both extra capacity in the plant and improved productivity on our other lines."

Jaymar Packaging specialises in the design and manufacture of bespoke carton board packaging solutions for SME and blue chip companies.

According to Street, investing in the third Bobst machine was "a natural choice" when opting for extra capacity at the 2787sqm-headquarted business.

"The work we have done with Bobst in the past, along with the success of the Mistral and Fuego installations, meant that it was a natural choice to discuss our plans for improving the department’s workflow with them," he added.
