There is a good chance that packaged products such as tomatoes, broccoli, cabbage and mushrooms have been labelled with an automatic barcode label printer from the LP500 series from VWS International. This also applies to the trays with mainly conference pears from A.C. van Blijderveen Fruit, a grower with a modern packing station in Ingen, The Netherlands.
“It is essential for us to keep production downtimes to an absolute minimum. The systems and service of VWS International are sublime and if there is a problem, they are always there for us," Niels van Blijderveen, who runs the family business together with his father and brother, explains the confidence in VWS International.
In the case of A.C. van Blijderveen Fruit, VWS International has grown along with the customer, as it were. A few years ago, VWS International supplied the first labelling system to the Van Blijderveen family, which has been active in the fruit trade for over a hundred years. Over time, however, there was a need for a system with a higher output, so the previous labelling system was replaced six months ago by an LP500-Twin system with a capacity of up to 160 packs per minute.
