Samuel Grant praises French take on pallet wrapping
27 March 2019
The French government has introduced a scheme to encourage businesses to invest in compliant pallet wrapping machines.
The Samuel Grant Group has praised the move saying hand wrapping pallets is an inefficient process, and poses risks to employee health. Musculoskeletal problems and back pain are common, says the firm.
The company adds: “Using an automated pallet wrapping machine eliminates the manual task of wrapping and can significantly reduce work-related injury and warehouse staff turnover. With financial assistance towards a new machine, French businesses are encouraged to invest to increase warehouse productivity and significantly improve the physical health of staff.
“While this is a useful scheme, in the UK it is not necessary. The Samson Nano is a Queen’s Award-winning semi-automatic pallet wrapper launched in 2013 that has positively impacted hundreds of businesses across the country.”
The Samson Nano also comes capex free, with clients paying a fixed price per wrapped pallet. Servicing, maintenance and repair costs are the responsibility of Samson Nano technicians so there’s no hidden costs, says the firm.
