Dunstable-based branded clothing provider Essential Embroidery Design has significantly improved its efficiency after purchasing three new pieces of finishing kit from Friedheim International
The company works with a wide range of customers across its Essential Embroidery Design and Essential division, providing a wide range of clothing decoration services including embroidery, screen print and transfer print.
To complement this offering, Essential was seeking new machinery to improve the efficiency of its packing department as it went in search of further growth. This was focused around a solution that could fold, bag and label clothing products from its production line.
Essential approached finishing solutions leader Friedheim International for support with the investment project, opting for a Beck Serienpacker S2050XJ Bagging Machine, Texfinity S.OMNI.A Garment Folding Machine and Weber Legi-Air 2050 Print and Apply Labeller Station.
“We wanted a solution that could fold, bag, and label as a one-man operation, using these three units together we were able to achieve that,” Essential’s Operations Director Louis Georgiou said.
“The investment has really helped us in being more efficient by reducing the labour hours needed in our packing department, which will now allow us to pursue new work and grow our business as a result.”
“This has allowed us to take on jobs on shorter turnaround times and given our staff more time to focus on more important organisational tasks, which allows our operation to run much more smoothly,” Georgiou said.
Georgiou added that by reducing labour hours in packing, this will free up staff to work on other projects, which will in turn support its long-term growth strategy.
