Basingstoke based Gordian Strapping, one of the UK’s leading end of line specialists in package and pallet securement, has provided a system solution for a leading major tool brand, Draper Tools at its 400,000 sq. ft. premises in Chandler’s Ford, Hampshire, probably the largest stock of tools in one place in the UK.
Draper Tools, established in 1919, has a long-standing pedigree for supplying quality goods. Draper sells products into all major markets including automotive, builders, DIY, gardening, construction, decorating and engineering, and has more recently diversified into hobby, leisure and other non tool lines.
The improvement to Draper’s end-of-line packaging system was the installation of a RQ-8AFR fully automated strapping machine, featuring knurled, positive drive rollers and integrated with a centralizing conveyor. The RQ-8AFR was specified for its robustness and reliability, and its ability to apply between 2 and 5 straps to different sized cartons one after the other at high speed.
Draper Tools’ Warehouse Manager, Keith McLean, feels there is a natural symmetry between the two Hampshire based companies; “having used Gordian Strapping’s products for over 30 years, we have been impressed with the quality and service they provide. When it came to looking to improve our conveyor banding system, Gordian Strapping was the first and only choice”.
