Beacon Packaging Ltd is a large, independent company which converts board into corrugated boxes and fitments. It occupies an approximate 80,000sq.ft modern site at Aldershot, Hampshire. This central location allows it to cover locations across the UK.
The company has invested considerably over the past five years, and has a modern portfolio of the latest and most technologically-advanced machinery. With a large fully-racked warehouse of over 2000 pallet spaces, Beacon Packaging also offers a stocking and call-off facility.
To continue with Beacon Packing’s rapid growth, and as an integral part of its end of line productivity, B&B Attachments, the UK’s leading independent supplier of forklift truck attachments and the exclusive UK distributor of Kaup equipment, has supplied the packaging company with two designs of Kaup Fork Positioners and one specially-designed Rotating Load Inverter, delivered through Locators Limited.
Simply designed and therefore extremely economical, the KAUP Fork Positioner T163SN has symmetrical fork adjustment. Its strengthened design allows Beacon Packaging to increase flexibility and enhance profitability with greater handling capacity of every forklift truck, especially when the width of the load changes constantly.
The robust KAUP Fork Positioner T410Z is ideal for when a large opening range is required on a small construction width.
Also provided to the packaging company is the KAUP Pallet Turnover Clamp T451W. This attachment is designed with high visibility and suitable for all kinds of applications. Used by Beacon Packaging to turn palletised and non-palletised goods, and to exchange pallets from production pallets to transport pallets, this attachment has been specially adjusted by B&B attachments to give additional fork positioning, allowing the attachment to cope with many different pallet sizes.
Richard Horrocks, Logistics Manager at Beacon Packaging, comments “The attachments provided by B&B attachments are an integral part of our operation and have already made a difference to our on-site productivity, enabling fast and reliable loading, unloading and end of line support. The ease of use and reliable operation of the attachments together with the service given by B&B has been second to none.”
Established over 30 Years ago, B&B Attachments Ltd offer the largest range of products from a single source. With customers throughout the UK and Europe, B&B continues to build on its reputation for offering the most comprehensive aftercare service available in the attachment field.
