Packrobat Automation (est. 2000)
We live in a consumer driven world where multi ordering channels are constantly available to us via smart phone, tablet and PC. For the majority receiving an ‘order confirmation’ completes the process, but for those inside the logistics supply chain it’s where the real work begins.
PA aim to deliver cost effective streamlining and development of key end of line processes in any warehouse, simplifying order fulfilment through collaboration and knowledge sharing; pick, pack, label and sort? then we are the right partner for you.
The Company created a solid foundation from almost its first breath following the successful development of one of the worlds first Ecom (home delivery) packaging systems. The machine created a robust film and corrugated combo pack (Q-12) aimed at automatically securing single item and mixed multiple orders inside a unique style of carton, automatically labelled ready to go!
Timing was nigh on perfect as release to market coincided with the then vibrant mail order and book / music club organisations, before quickly crossing over with the launch of the internet and with that the online ordering phenomenon we know today. The Q-12 system was developed alongside Cambridge University Press who invested in the proto-type and with their blessing it was soon to be integrated inside a further 15 book distribution centres, spanning the UK, Eastern Europe, Channel Islands and USA. Today, systems can be seen handling a wide range of other products including media, home entertainment, electrical and computer / office equipment.
Packrobat has always maintained a recognised presence within the printing and bindery industry and since receiving its first order in April 2000, has integrated multiples of its own brand of Bindery Shrinkwrappers, Automatic Case Packers, Palletwrappers and Conveyor Systems.
As the Company was born on ‘development’ we have always maintained a wide pool of expertise and engineering partners to collaborate with, resulting in the design and integration of many bespoke machines across various disciplines and industry sectors.
We have always understood the importance of peripheral business outside of just selling equipment; project management, spare parts, engineering services, tailormade service contracts and packaging materials are all key to us and our client’s ultimate success.
The decision to fully rebrand in 2017 was made easier by allowing the previous brand identity to underpin and celebrate the past successes of Packrobat Ltd. Looking ahead, the name change, new logo, website, fresh colour palette and business model are fully reflective of where Packrobat Automation Ltd is currently trading and has been designed to carry the business into the foreseeable future and beyond.
Our strength and credibility continues to grow among E-com and Wholesale distributors, having widened our knowledge and sourcing capabilities to include some of Europe’s finest packaging and sortation equipment. Packrobat Automation continually invests in finding and developing new solutions, so our clients can concentrate fully on what they do best.
We understand todays demands; the E-com platform puts tremendous pressure on distributors, who are challenged daily to deliver cheaper, faster, greener, branded parcels to their customers doorsteps.
Meanwhile wholesalers are being pressed to control costs to protect margin, which is being constantly eroded by the multi nationals and the E-com sector. As marginal gains are important, consider; order consolidation (less units despatched) avoid shipping fresh air and using expensive void fill (good product to pack size ratio) and package goods securely and robustly to avoid unnecessary damage / returns.
