Cavan Box is using its new Zünd G3 for cardboard box samples for customers in the UK and Ireland

Irish packaging specialist Cavan Box has invested in a new Zünd G3 L2500 from Zünd UK to produce samples it describes as 'exceptional'.

Established as a small sheet plant in the angling Mecca of County Cavan in 1981, 100 per cent Irish-owned Cavan Box has developed over three decades into a box plant supplying the food industry, medical and general engineering sectors. Its production facilities meet all the necessary accreditations demanded by leading blue chip clients while never forgetting the requirements of small manufacturers.

Cavan Box frequently upgrades its conversion machinery, typically every seven years. The purchase of the Zünd G3 L2500, installed at the end of 2015, was 'the obvious progression' for sample-making, says Anselm Lovett, Managing Director of Cavan Box.

"We noticed the machine in some of the well-known independents in the UK and a day with Zünd customer Atlas Packaging in Barnstaple sealed the deal for us.

"We moved up from another UK supplier who didn’t have the back-up assistance that Zünd offers. The training from Zünd was also light years ahead of our previous supplier – we have a full complement of people who can now use the table.

"The turnaround for samples was always quick but now the quality of the sample is exceptional."

Anselm Lovett also praised Greg Heather, appointed as Zünd UK Sales Account Manager for the Midlands, North-West England, Wales and Ireland in May 2015, for his 'very good' knowledge of the technology.

"Cavan Box is a savvy investor, always keeping an eye on new developments in conversion equipment and choosing the very best machinery for its needs," comments Peter Giddings, Sales Director, Zünd Plotting Systems (UK) Ltd. "As a designer of bespoke cardboard boxes, it needs to offer the highest quality samples for its customers. The Zünd G3 L2500 is therefore an ideal choice."

Zünd UK's G3 digital cutting system has a modular configuration, enabling users to choose the right combination of tools and material-handling options based on their requirements at the time of purchase and to make alterations retroactively. Swiss engineering has created versatile, durable systems able to handle materials up to 50mm thick with minimal user intervention and maximum efficiency and safety. British expertise provides the knowledge and experience required to help Zünd users reach their machines' full potential.
