Tong Appointed UK Distributor for Verbruggen Palletising Solutions

Leading UK maker of vegetable handling equipment Tong Engineering is thrilled to announce that Verbruggen, a Dutch company that manufactures palletizing solutions, has chosen it to be its UK distributor.

The announcement is consistent with Tong’s commitment to offering vegetable producers and processors a complete handling solution from post-harvest to pack, which now includes cutting-edge end-of-line box and bag palletizing systems.

“Like Tong, Verbruggen is a family business who are committed to manufacturing innovative, custom-built handling solutions that save labour and maximise throughput,” says Simon Lee, sales director at Tong Engineering. “Verbruggen is renowned for manufacturing first-class palletising and stacking solutions with excellent product support. We have successfully collaborated on a number of projects with Verbruggen in the past, so we are experienced in the capabilities of their machines and are delighted that we can now officially offer their range of palletisers to the UK agricultural industry.”

Verbruggen palletizers are made to assure prompt, effective, and consistent stacking of bags, boxes, and crates on pallets or sheets. They provide exact product stacking capabilities at any pace, resulting in a palletiser for every throughput. A Verbruggen palletizing system not only significantly lowers labor costs and downtime but also makes the best use of loading space thanks to its many automatic and semi-automatic choices. Verbruggen solutions include check weighers, wrapping machines, strapping machines, and a comprehensive line of palletizers; all of these will be available via Tong as the UK distributor.
