When the time came to replace a vertical form-fill-seal packaging machine and a multihead weigher, wholesale cheese processor Di Rossi Foods turned to Emrich Packaging Machinery.

Having purchased from Emrich previously, Di Rossi Foods knew Emrich would deliver solutions that offered reliability and consistency in performance.

“The machine we wanted to replace was from another supplier and was only two years old when we took the decision to replace it,” said Di Rossi Foods’ General Manager Jim Leckey.

“It had required constant adjustment by our operators and so we were looking for equipment that would overcome this problem. Critical to our decision was that the replacement equipment had to offer exceptional reliability and consistency in weigh control.”

Leckey opted for the the Italian-designed and -manufactured PFM Zenith vertical form-fill-and-seal packaging machine and PFM’s MBP C2 Series multihead weigher.

“Purchasing the PFM Zenith and multihead weigher has proven to be a good decision,” Leckey said. “The machinery has been faultless and offers really dependable performance. Its speed and accuracy have impacted very favourably on our profitability.”

According to Leckey, technical support requirements have been minimal in the 12 months Di Rossi Foods has been using the equipment, and the Emrich support team has been happy to call out for a few on-site adjustments to ensure the machinery was running as effectively as possible.

“Another advantage has been that the PFM machinery is very easy to use and maintain,” Leckey said. “Introducing them to our operations definitely put a smile on our operators’ faces.”
