A suite wrapping solution for Ultra Finishings bathroom products!

Yorkshire Packaging Systems are pleased to share their latest success story the installation of a wide inline sleeve wrapper and shrink tunnel into the Bolton factory of Ultra Finishing.

 A suite wrapping solution for Ultra Finishings bathroom products!

Ultra Finishing are a leading retailer of premium bathroom and sanitary products as well as quality heating solutions, and have over thirty five years experience in the industry. They are the manufacturer behind several household names such as Hudson Reed, Premier and Old London. With several factories across the north of England, the company build the majority of their exceptional products in-house and as a result are proud members of the ‘Made In Britain’ scheme. Over the course of the last five years, Ultra Finishing have experienced continued growth and so in 2018 looked to expand on their existing packaging facilities to meet increased volumes and streamline their production by segregating their products.

The 1800mm wide inline sleeve sealer and shrink tunnel supplied by YPS was wider than Ultra Finishing’s existing shrink wrapping line and therefore allowed for larger and higher bathroom products than ever before to be wrapped. Due to the size of the machinery, additional CE marked health and safety features were incorporated. These included upgraded guarding, the ability to detect any human entering the shrink tunnel (which would trigger the line to power down) and an integrated low level film holder to prevent the need to lift heavy rolls of shrink film. Following extensive FAT testing, the full line was delivered and installed at Ultra Finishing ahead of schedule. The ongoing benefits experienced by the business since installation include improved capacity, increased efficiency and improved pack quality.

Glyn Johnson, YPS Managing Director explained ‘I’m very pleased that Ultra Finishing selected Yorkshire Packaging as their new shrink wrapping supplier and that we could deliver everything that they needed. I look forward to a long relationship with them as they continue to grow and prosper.’


"What set YPS apart for us was the attention to detail shown in making sure our requirements were accommodated. Furthermore, their track record for exceptional back up and support sealed the deal."
Gary Main, Ultra Finishing Production Manager
