Leading florist wholesaler invests in Balex cardboard baler

DSC_0330One of the largest florist wholesalers in the UK recently chose a Europress Balex 50 baler to meet their cardboard waste handling requirements.

Having used a baler supplied by Kenburn since 2003, the time had come for them to find a replacement baling machine.

Due to the longevity and reliability of the existing 17 year old machine, Kenburn was the obvious choice for providing recommendations on the selection of a mill size cardboard baler.

The machine chosen by the wholesalers was the Balex 50 baler which is designed and manufactured in Finland by Europress. This baler would be comfortable able to meet their requirement for producing three to four 500 kg cardboard bales per day.

What were their baling requirements?

Although their requirement was mostly to bale cardboard boxes, they were also keen to bale their plastic film.

Since the Balex 50 has two pressure settings, with one optimised for cardboard and the other for plastic, it would be easy for the operator to simply switch between two modes of operation.

Equally attractive was the full parts and labour warranty for two years.


Why was a Balex baler perfect for them?

All machines in the Balex baler range have been superbly engineered and are built to last. Europress has designed and built these Balex balers for a long life of typically 6 – 15 years, depending on maintenance, usage and the materials being baled. In our opinion, almost any waste handling demand can be satisfied with this range of balers.

Exclusive in the UK to Kenburn, these cross cylinder Balex balers are low in height and so are easy to position.

They are robust, heavy duty machines and since they are all are supplied with a Two Year parts and labour warranty, the customer has additional piece of mind.
