Clevertech is internationally acknowledged for its quality layer palletising solutions. Its range of palletising equipment includes high and low level layer palletisers, depalletisers and multi-brand solutions for jars, cans, trays and cases.
Talks to forge closer ties began in 2011 after the two companies had collaborated on a major overseas project which included an extensive conveyor system, layer palletisers and robot palletising. Many synergies already exist between the respective businesses, including a strong commitment to customer service and after-sales support. In addition, both CKF and Clevertech are privately owned businesses, respected for their engineering expertise and R&D in new technologies.
“This alliance enables CKF to extend into new markets and include a full range of layer palletising and depalletising solutions alongside our robot palletising systems.” explains Kevin Staines, Sales Director, CKF Systems.
“With its engineering and software expertise, CKF is able to approach each project either as a system integrator, offering a full turnkey project, or as an agent for the Clevertech equipment,” confirms Umberto Reggiani, Clevertech’s Sales Manager. “It is a real advantage for us to be able to offer potential UK customers the support and know-how of a company with CKF’s credentials.”
