Westbury Packaging
Westbury Packaging’s Alan Jane said: “Purchasing the Kolbus Autobox has enabled us to move several processes in to one, saving hours of set time each day and hundreds of pounds worth of tooling. The Kolbus Autobox Boxmaker makes high value, notoriously difficult jobs, much easier and faster to run. Since installation, we have run a huge range of products through the machine, it hit the ground running. We are getting even more out of it than we thought we would. The print unit in particular has been extremely useful for us, we feel as though it has always been there!”

"Over the last 35 years I have been heavily involved with most aspects of our manufacturing and I can honestly say the AutoBox is probably, for what it does, the best machine I have ever worked with"
WER Packing Supplies
“I just wanted to say the AutoBox we purchased from you has proved to be a great investment.
Within the WER Group, small run work was an area we had naturally moved away from due to investments over the years on higher output machines.

Small run work was the foundation of our business 50 years ago and I felt in recent years it was an area that as a Group we had neglected.

As you know on this side of the business at WER Packing Supplies, we did not manufacture, but due to the Autobox’s simplicity, we had staff trained and operating within the first day.

We now stock hold sheets of board in various grades and can turn around small volume work in 24 hours which has proved very useful to a number of our customers.

Over the last 35 years I have been heavily involved with most aspects of our manufacturing and I can honestly say the Autobox is probably, for what it does, the best machine I have ever worked with for its ease of setting, low maintenance, and reliability.”

Production Manager, David McNally has been key to the growth of the business and acknowledges the large part that BCS-Autobox machines have played in their success. “We purchased our first BCS-Autobox machine some 20+ years ago and have now added our 4th machine with in-line 2 colour print. This is testimony to the robust construction, reliability and excellent after sales service that BCS-Autobox continue to provide”. 

He continues, “The machines work day in, day out, they never let us down and cost very little to maintain”. 

White Rose Packaging first started with a 2-pass box maker to cater for short runs of bespoke boxes. From there, they developed in to a very successful sheet plant that maintains excellent margins. Investment in the newer BCS-Autobox, modular line means that White Rose have improved production efficiencies by an average of 50%. In some circumstances, producing corner cut designs, we have saved up to 8 passes of operation in to 1”.

"Our Autobox Boxmaker has only cost us only €400 in spare parts since 2013, despite three years of intense daily use. It has been highly satisfactory"
Guillaume Dupin, P.D.G.
Cartons Dupin are a privately-owned family company located in Bordeaux, specialising in the quick supply of corrugated cases all over France.
In order to do this, Cartons Dupin hold buffer stocks which are despatched from a large warehouse, usually comprising several pallets per delivery. This ensures their customers are always able to rely on Dupin for deliveries at short notice.

Needing 15,000m² of storage, and with a continuous demand for more stock and more space, Cartons Dupin owner, Guillaume Dupin started looking into the potential of manufacturing in-house in order to reduce this space requirement. After considerable research, a BCS AutoBOX was chosen based on several factors including the machine’s ability to change from one job to another with minimal set-up time. 

This feature is vital in allowing Cartons Dupin to fully exploit their quickly developing and highly profitable short run box-making business.
Other benefits included the BCS AutoBOX’s ease of use, with no particular in-depth training required. This increases significantly the number of different operators able to run the machine at short notice.

Very soon Cartons Dupin were working two 8 hours shifts to keep up with demand. They learned  to maximise the benefits by supplying more than just RSC’s, in particular wraps, and special sample packs for the local wine industry.

According to Guillaume Dupin, the AutoBOX is probably the best investment he has ever made.
