Malvern, Worcestershire, United Kingdom, 2009/03/09 - As it celebrates 25 years in Europe and a 25,000 sq ft extension, the world leader in flexible bagging solutions has received a major accolade.
Automated Packaging Systems has been awarded Company of the Year title at the Food Processing annual Awards, affirming its place at the forefront of the food bagging industry.
“The award is a welcome acknowledgement of the hard work and dedication by all our staff over the last 18 months,” says Managing Director Peter Wylie. “It’s satisfying to receive recognition from within the food industry following our commitment and investment in the FAS SPrint, a core part of our bagging portfolio.
“We’ve built the FAS SPrint and, indeed, the entire business on an ability to supply flexible, cost-effective, high impact bagging solutions. At this time of global economic uncertainty, the savings in costs and increases in efficiency from our bagging solutions have never been more valuable. Being awarded Company of the Year is recognition of this.”
While acknowledging the challenges facing firms during the recession, Mr Wylie says APS is well positioned to weather the storm and help its customers excel.
Commenting on the award, David Strydom, editor of Food Processing said: ''From the moment Food Processing started working with Automated Packaging Systems, we realised we were dealing with a professional outfit which is making an impact on Britain’s food industry.
“Owing to its reputation within the industry and to the quality of its products, Automated Packaging Systems is exactly the type of company which gives hope to our food industry. FAS SPrint represents innovation, which is why our readers voted it 'Company of the Year' in the 2009 FP Awards.''
