Following the acquisition of Chronos Richardson by Canadian company Premier Tech last December, the Nottingham based manufacturer is now able to supply its range of packaging and palletising systems for organic materials.

Its 200E Series of Horizontal Form Fill and Seal bagging systems is now being aimed at the mushroom compost and mushroom case packing sector.

The FFS-200E Series is an automatic bagging system that makes its own bags from heat sealable, pre-printed centre fold film. Designed to form bags from 254mm to 686mm wide and up to 1143mm long, the FFS-200E operates at up to 1800 bags/hr.
