Laila’s Fine Foods Ltd is a successful family run business, specialising in authentic, ready prepared meals for food service and retail. Laila’s started its six-year relationship with Packaging Automation Ltd with a small tray sealer but when the business grew and throughputs needed to be increased it purchased SL4 tray sealers from PA’s eclipse range.

The eclipse SL4 has been designed to address the environmental impact of packaging operations by reducing the user’s power consumption by up to 90%. The in-line, fully electric SL4 is a small footprint machine capable of sealing 60 packs per minute.

Featuring PA’s PowerdriveTM technology, the SL4 is a fully electric machine and operates without using any compressed air, therefore offering savings of up to 98% of the running costs of conventional pneumatically operated tray sealers.

Mark Richardson General Manager at Laila’s said: “As our business has increased, PA have been able to support our growth with new machines and unparalleled service levels. We have just taken delivery of two new high-speed sealing machines taking us to five PA lines and a complete PA site. PA is now looking at new processes to help us to progress and keep at the forefront of this competitive arena.”
