OH SNAP! Pickling Co. Orders Third New SOMIC Wraparound Case Packer System
Already experiencing solid production results after installing two high-speed SOMIC case packing systems three months ago, OH SNAP!® Pickling Co. has ordered a third retail ready 424 W3 wraparound machine. The compact, end-of-line unit is expected to be online in the second quarter of 2021.
To keep up with demand, OH SNAP! is reportedly running the machines constantly and collating and case packing between 1.5 and 2 million pouches per week.
“We like how the SOMIC machines are functioning. Based on their performance, along with the continuing rapid growth of our OH SNAP! business, we are purchasing a third SOMIC machine,” said Ryan M. Downs, president, OH SNAP!.
“With their current format set-up, they are collating and case packing as many as 160 pouches per minute and the product is packaged in 6, 12, or 18 count display cartons,” said Peter Fox, vice president of sales, SOMIC America, Inc. “When the third machine is put into operation next year, they will have the capability to satisfy greater demand in the marketplace for their products.”
