Reducing our carbon footprint in our dispatch department

At Alco we constantly work to reduce our carbon footprint. To this end, we have recently invested in two new technologies in our packing / dispatch departments. The first is a transit skin packaging machine from Sontex which allows us to place our instrumentation valves and compression fittings onto corrugated board which is then enveloped in a polythene based skin film. This environmentally friendly form of packing is not only space saving but also eliminates the need for excess packaging.

The second is paper packing technology. The impressive Packmaster™ is the most advanced void fill packaging system available and efficiently creates robust paper cushioning which can fill most spaces / sizes of box and easily mould around any product ensuring secure transit. We are now using this on our larger valves that require boxes or crates for transit. You can see both of these machines in action below.

You can see both of these machines in action in the videos below.
