Australian success in the international packaging market

Fibre King.

Fibre King has successfully completed a USD 100 million project.

Palletising company Fibre King has completed its largest export installation to date, supplying the entire end-of-line packaging system for a USD 100 million plant expansion in Asia. 

Requested by a US-based pharmaceutical company, the project included three new packaging lines, covering case packing, check-weighing, coding, palletising and interconnecting product and case conveyors and also a de-palletiser for an order of over AUD 4 million.

The company carried out stringent pre-shipment testing, including a 10-day FAT with six of the client’s representatives from the US, the UK and the local Asian site.

After successful testing it shipped nine 40’ containers of machinery, which were installed over the last two months.

Fibre King CEO Earle Roberts said: “Despite the strong Australian dollar and tight engineering and trades labour market, we have been able to secure large export orders against major European and American competitors. 

“We have then been able to deliver a large and complex project to the clients exacting requirements.”

The company said it has been aiming to raise its performance in its traditional case packing and palletising market, successfully dealing with meat and fresh produce businesses.
