Posie Packer labelling machine now available in the UK through NP Seymour

Fruit machinery and equipment specialist NP Seymour has become the UK representative for the Canadian firm Posie Packer, selling its produce-bag labelling machine to British growers.

NP Seymour managing director Nick Seymour said: "The labelling machine fits into our present range of labour-saving machines, to allow our clients to get their fruit from bud to box profitably. It will allow our company to expand to supply the mechanical needs for growers of leafy greens.

"The multiples in the UK require time-sensitive information on the bags used for fruit and vegetables sold to the consumer. Presently these labels are applied manually. The features of this machine will allow for this to be mechanised."

Posie Packer president John Vandergrift said: "NP Seymour is an ideal distributor for this product in the UK market. It is a customer-oriented company and has the depth and expertise to offer after-sales support to packers and repackers of fruit and vegetables."
