Josera GMBH & Co., a German company based in Kleinheubach, is a landmark at a European level in the field of pet food for its quality standards and environmental policy.
The company stands out for the high added value of its products and the search for partners and suppliers at the forefront of technology, in order to meet the changing needs of a constantly evolving market. This search for optimum technological solutions and the availability on the market of Umbra Packaging’s high-end products brought about the encounter of the two leading companies.
In view of the opening of a new pet food packaging facility to be equipped with the most technologically advanced equipment, Josera needed to safely and efficiently automate all its packaging and palletising processes.
The call for offers, which addressed the worldwide automation market, involved submitting a proposal for 2 complete packaging lines that would assure productivity as well as high quality and safety standards, in order to meet the market’s growing demand.
Umbra Pakaging's solution and results
Umbra Packaging, a European leader in the field of pet food packaging machines, was invited to tender for the supply of the systems together with 4 other companies.
After a careful analysis of all specifications and customer requirements, Umbra was awarded the tender as it was considered the most technologically advanced in the automation of animal feed packaging processes thanks to high levels of efficiency, flexibility, safety and productivity.
Umbra Packaging, therefore, was awarded the project thanks to its ongoing, major investments in R&D over the last few years, which led to setting up a designated Pet food department.
Two UP1000 PRO lines were implemented for Josera, complete with a UPR PRO palletising system having up to 1000 s/h throughput each and capable of processing 1 to 25 kg bags, thus achieving the high levels of performance and reliability that the customer had requested in the initial stage.
“From the first meet ing to the delivery of the systems in Germany, through to all detail definition processes, Umbra Packaging delivered what it promised. We are grateful to Umbra for the commitment, support and high professionalism shown during all project stages.”
