Kliklok hosts conference for international agents

04 November 2010

Packaging machinery company Kliklok International is celebrating the success of its Agents Conference, which brought together agents and distributors from all over the world for an educational, informative 3-day event held in October

Delegates from over 20 different countries took part in machine demonstrations, packaging application workshops, presentations, and discussions on new product development, technical innovation and marketing activities.

The company introduced their newest cartoning machines: The entry level KII hand pack cartoner, with stainless steel construction, powered hopper, hot melt glue system, text display screen and quick size adjustment. Plus the Smart-3 – Kliklok new economical, space saving 3-flap carton carton closer, featuring lugless design, colour touch screen, large size range and speed of up to 120 cartons per minute.

Kliklok also gave demonstrations of their popular SFR cartoner, Certiwrap C150 wraparound sleever, and QS shrinkwrapper. In addition, two comprehensive pizza cartoning lines were running in the factory, being tested before despatch to a major frozen food company in Australia.

These impressive, fully integrated lines consisted of two product infeed & diverting conveyor systems, six CLS Cascade Loaders for collating and stacking pizzas from singles to fours, and two award-wining CELOX high performance end load cartoners, operating at speeds of up to 240 cartons per minute. The lines also included bar code scanners and unglued flap detect & reject units.

As part of the conference sessions, each delegate was asked to give a short presentation to outline their own business activity, with an overview of their company, and provide comments on issues like competition, potential markets, improving communication links, and future plans.
 
This provided essential information to further understand the way our overseas markets behave, recognising packaging & production trends in different countries & cultures, and paving the way for stronger working relationships.

To give their international guests a night to remember, Kliklok hosted an evening dinner on board the SS Great Britain, which included a guided tour of the ship. As an engineering company based in Bristol for 40 years, Kliklok felt it was a fitting way to acknowledge the proud connection between Bristol and the inspiring legacy left by Britain’s most famous engineer, Brunel.

Managing Director Bob Morley said “Our agents conference was a great opportunity to establish a mutually beneficial working relationship, through the sharing of ideas and gaining information on Kliklok’s future plans and new developments.”

The design brief for this product was to bring ‘bag in box’ wine into the 21st century. In order to do so, it was decided that wine in a box had to become ‘fashionable’. With the knowledge that 8 out of every 10 bottles of wine bought to drink at home are bought by women plus the knowledge that handbags are at the top of a woman’s most wanted list, the Vernissage Wine Handbag was, without doubt, the most obvious fashion choice.Full Story...
