News item written by John Hughes of Bathgate Silica Sand regarding the new Form Fill Seal bagging system installed by Webster Griffin
With the ever increasing rise in fuel costs and all of the environmental issues surrounding “carbon footprint” we made the decision to replace our old bagging plant at Congleton with a “state of the art” plant on our own site at Arclid, Cheshire. This move allows us to bag our products on-site without the need for transportation to Congleton, thus considerably reducing our carbon footprint.
Our new “form fill and seal” bagging system allows us to fill 10kg or 25kg bags at the rate of 1000 bags an hour. We can also accommodate 1 and 2 tonne bulk bags.
This high performance from our plant means product supply to you or your customer is made quickly and efficiently, significantly reducing the risk of losing business through delays..
Bathgate Silica Sand produces and distributes the highest quality bagged and loose silica sand, root zone and top dressing mixes for the industrial, leisure, and equestrian markets.
We combine nearly 60 years of experience with specifically refined procedures to guarantee products that suit a broad range of market demands.
