Frog Bikes - a packaging solution for an award winning company

Gordian Strapping Ltd supplied Frog Bikes with an automatic side-seal strapping machine (RQ8-Y) when the company brought production back from overseas in 2016. The strapping machine secures two straps around the bike box to prevent the contents from shifting and getting damaged in transit.

Frog Bikes now operate from a 120,000 sq ft manufacturing facility in South Wales. The company have received a plethora of acolades, including the Made in Wales Manufacturer of the Year 2017 (under £25m), Made in the UK Manufacturer of the Year 2018 (under £25m) and the Queens Award for Export 2017. The Frog Bikes brand has a global reach and wide-ranging green credentials, as well as an exclusive licence to produce Tour de France™ branded bicycles. Frog Bikes are now the UK’s largest bicycle manufacturer by volume.

Frog bikes are built using a wide range of high-quality bespoke components and are assembled using state of the art equipment, by a skilled operational team.

  • The decision to introduce a strapping machine at the end of the packing line to secure the individual bikes transit box was made in the knowledge that the product must be securely shipped by external couriers and freight handlers, 2x straps are automatically applied to secure the box for transit, ensuring the product arrives satisfactorily at its end destination.
  • The side seal machine vertically applies 2x straps around the width of the transit pack as it feeds through the packing line.
  • The RQ8-Y Strapping equipment must be fast and reliable, often applying over 600 straps per 8-hour day.

Gordian was able to recommend the most appropriate strapping machine model from its large range held in stock at its UK facility in Basingstoke, this location also provides bespoke engineering work to create a custom end of line packaging solutions for its customers.

Lea Caddick, Quality and H&S Manager commented, “The machine from Gordian has provided a reliable and consistent way to package our products for market, it has never let us down, it’s fast, and is supported by a national team of engineers available for service and support should we need”.
