Macfarlane Packaging announces automation agreement with Lantech

Macfarlane Packaging, the UK’s leading distributor of protective packaging, announces today (18 March) a new automation distributor agreement with US-based Lantech.


In the 1970s, Lantech invented the first stretch wrapper, which was developed to safely palletise and ship products. Over the past 50 years, Lantech has become the leader in further developing stretch wrapping and packaging containment technology.


The agreement will see Macfarlane offer high quality Lantech stretch wrapping, case erecting and case sealing equipment to its customers as part of an extensive packaging automation proposition. Automation and packaging machinery can be key for businesses looking to improve efficiency and lower the costs associated with their packaging supply chain.


Commenting on the announcement, Chris Machin, Head of Category for Macfarlane, said: “Working with Lantech to extend our automation offering allows us to provide our customers with pallet wrappers, case erectors and case sealers that deliver exceptional performance. The agreement further complements our already comprehensive range of automation solutions and enables us to support our customers in building resilient and sustainable supply chains.”


Kieran Ford, International Sales Manager for Lantech added:” It is with great pride and pleasure that we announce our distributor agreement with Macfarlane Packaging.


“Both organisations are leaders in our field and have a strong history of working with customers who need the right long-term, solutions. With a wealth of knowledge, plus their Innovation Labs, Macfarlane Packaging is an ideal partner and we are excited about what the future holds.”
