Why the Made-in-China Wrap-Around Sleever?
For the past long-term Chinese local companies which needed carton sleeving solutions had been having automation solutions available only for their choice the local made fair and quality average cartoning machine or imported Wrap-Around Sleevers. The former is mediocre expediency only due to the performance and unsatisfactory pattern of packaging for sleeving that products should be transposed while importing machinery for overseas would raise considerable the budget.
At the same time, the ready-meal and self-heating foods industry in China has been growing prominently with market volume upsurging at an unprecedented pace, a fact that a new player is expected to enter the niche to provide an adapted solution for the market.
