New supplier partnership for RM Group
RM Group to supply, service and support Lachenmeier stretch-hood machines in the UK
ROBOTICS and automation specialists RM Group have announced an exclusive partnership with Lachenmeier, a brand of the leading global transit packaging providers Signode. The move will see RM Group become the preferred supplier of stretch-hood machines in the UK.
As part of the agreement, RM Group will also be able to provide their UK customers with service and support for the stretch-hood machines from their existing network of fully trained engineers.
Lachenmeier are one of the leading global packaging machine providers. In servicing a broad range of market segments and as part of Signode APT, their product portfolio includes high-quality stretch hood, orbital stretch-wrap machines and strapping equipment, all of which are manufactured with the aim of boosting operational efficiency and profitability.
'RM Group is a young, dynamic company with a can do attitude – a company which holds similar core values to the Lachenmeier business,’ said Tony Butler, key account manager at Signode APT Europe. ‘We very much look forward to strengthening our ties as we move forward together.’
From their 50,000 sq ft mid-Wales factory, RM Group design, manufacture and supply a broad range of manual and automatic packaging machinery, packaging systems and robotic automation to a wide customer base, including the aggregates industry. The company’s service packages cover a wide-ranging toolbox of support options and can be configured to suit customers’ equipment and requirements.
Commenting on the partnership, Edward Pugh, RM Group’s sales director, said: ‘Lachenmeier is an ideal partner for the RM Group, providing us with an excellent range of stretch hooders to add to our portfolio in support of our UK customers.
‘Also, with the ability to provide service and support for the machines, as opposed to Lachenmeier engineers having to fly in from Denmark, we can provide a reactive response service at very short notice, thereby saving our customers potential downtime and costs.’
