A COMPLETE RANGE OF SHRINK FILMS
“I would just like to say how impressed we are with the speed and efficiency in which Yorkshire
Packaging installed our new shrink wrap line. It is all too easy for suppliers to promise the earth
and claim how good the machinery is, only to fail in the end! Yorkshire Packaging not only made
the promise a reality, but actually went beyond our expectations.”
Alan Prior, British Gaskets Group
“After purchasing 2 Automatic and 1 Semi-Automatic Shrink Wrapping machines from you,
I would like you to know how satisfied I am with the machinery. I would also like to say that I find
Yorkshire Packaging one of the most helpful and professional companies that I have the pleasure
of working with and would have no hesitation in recommending YPS to others.”
Keith Westwood, LG Harris
“Thank you for your quick response to our urgent requirement. The machine is now installed
and I have no doubt that it will provide us with the same reliable performance as our original
machine. We continue to value our service agreement with yourselves and would not hesitate in
recommending Yorkshire Packaging and your shrink wrappers to any company.”
Andy Sampson, PharmaPac
“May I express my most sincere thanks to you and your team for the way you have excelled in
our short time of working together. From the trial we carried out with the machine, the training,
the loan of a 2nd machine and the support throughout the process has been outstanding.
Our ‘shrink wrapping’ machine is well made, easy to use, proved reliable and has performed
excellently 24hrs each day since we took delivery. I look forward to increasing our working
relationship in the future through either machinery or film business or both.”
