MSK Emballage & Vicat: A long-standing partnership, the result of continuous improvement
Since 2010, MSK Emballage and Vicat maintain a long-term relationship. It all started with the sales and installation of several MSK Tensiontech stretch packaging machines for three different sites of the Vicat group in France. But beyond the installation of the stretch hood machines and their maintenance, MSK Emballage SARL continues to regularly suggest to Vicat improvements on the quantity and the cost of the packaging.
Stretch hooding for the building materials industry
As an international cement group and as part of the building materials industry, Vicat has specific needs regarding the packaging of their products. Indeed, one of the company's priorities was to secure the loading of trucks. Thus, setting up an automatic stretch hood pallet packaging line for building materials not only allowed to obtain high production performance, but also optimized the load securing system since pallets of individual hooded bags replaced the manual covering of the trucks.
The cement bags are thus effectively protected against moisture or any bad weather conditions during transport and outdoor storage by means of a closed cover.
