PP Automation Ltd focuses on supplying the Pacepacker range of equipment that has been helping customers to operate more efficiently for over four decades. From quarries to food factories, farms to pharmaceutical labs, we’ve tackled production bottlenecks, automated labour intensive packing tasks, and designed palletising systems and safety cells of all sizes.
We offer friendly, expert help that shows you what you can do – not what you can’t. Our quest for innovation hasn’t wavered. We built the first bagging system that never lets go of bags during filling and sealing. Total Bag Control is still the best system on the market that does this. We built the world’s first product swap machine to create mixed retail trays, and it won the ultimate industry endorsement of ‘Most Innovative Machine 2015’.
Whatever your budget, product or environment, we will build a system to meet your long-term automation needs. No job is too complex or too small.
The best way to find out how we can help is to talk to us about your automation project. Please visit Our Services to discover how we go about turning automation ideas into reality.
