Seafood canning company Chicken of the Sea International is among the many companies responding to the multi-pack trend sweeping the grocery aisles. The California-based - company, which in 2014 is celebrating its 100th anniversary as an American food icon, decided it needed to add a bundling machine that could shrink wrap multiple cans into a package at its Lyons, Georgia plant. After reviewing the available options, Chicken of the Sea opted for the 597 Tritium Multipacker with Robo-Wand™ wrapping module, and 296 Continuum Tray Shrink packers, manufactured in the U.S. by Standard-Knapp. The new equipment lets Chicken of the Sea adapt to the particular pack styles required by various customers. Now the company reports that its new packaging equipment has helped increase production on the line by 50-75%, while reducing machine downtime significantly.
