Rigid Containers will start up a 1.8m corrugator in the next few months to increase service levels to a growing customer base.

The machine is due to be started up at the Wellington plant in the south-west of England.

The complete line, a Quantum corrugator, is manufactured by BP Agnati, based in Milan, Italy.

Richard Coward, managing director, said when it opened the Wellington site in 2013, it was set-up as a distribution hub to serve existing customers in the region.

“Then, later that year, we installed a range of converting machinery and converted board, which was being manufactured at our Desborough site,” ​he said.  

“The final part of the project was to install a corrugator at Wellington and I am delighted to confirm that this is now taking place.”

Robbie Iddon, corrugator manager at Rigid Containers, said they visited Sada Packaging in Salerno, Italy with BP Agnati to see a Quantum in action. 

“We were most impressed with the quality of the machine and the board that it was producing at high speed, but what sold it for us was its compact footprint,” ​he said. 

“As we have limited space at our Wellington site, it was important that we chose a smaller machine compared to others within the Rigid network.”
