To meet a significant increase in demand, cold cooked meats supplier PG Amps has purchased another thermoforming machine from Ulma Packaging.

The latest TFS Thermoformer will allow the firm to cope with a 55% increase in production of its sliced meat products. Prior to this, Ulma supplied Supra and TFS 300 thermoformers to the company.

The new TFS 300 is designed for use by small companies and has a high output with a compact footprint. It is used to pack 200g and 400g trim trays of sliced ham, beef, pork, turkey and chicken for delicatessens, discount stores and convenience shops.

Designed to handle a variety of fresh food, the equipment’s modified atmosphere packaging technology ensures good product quality throughout shelf-life for items including fish, poultry, cheese and pâtés, says Ulma.

PG Amps owner Peter Amps founded his meat manufacturing business supplying cured hams in 1991 before expanding into other cuts in the mid-1990s. He purchased his first Ulma thermoformer in 1998.
