Back in February, Select Bag Sealers’ business development manager James Carson and customers support engineer James Elliott took a trip to The Philippines to pay a visit to one of our newest clients, Angelina Bakeshop in Iloilo, following the order of their second FlexiPlus bag sealer.
After receiving delivery of their first machine at the end of 2018 the business, which has been baking and selling tinned bread for over 35 years, was extremely pleased with not only the machine itself, but also the ongoing support provided by Select Bag Sealers. In fact, one of the reasons for the team’s visit was for James Elliott to carry out a service and train the bakery’s two lead engineers.
Ted from Angelina Bakeshop said: “As an early adopter of Tape Sealing Equipment and Tape Seals in the Philippines, Select Bag Sealers has made the shift from clipbands to tape sealing easy. They have a very responsive and supportive Sales & Technical team and the Sealing machine is user friendly and runs smoothly with minimal intervention.
“In addition, Select has been very helpful in customising the machine to fit our production printing, and operational requirements. Despite the Philippines being a world away from the UK, support has never been an issue, and Select has always proven to be a reliable partner.”
While visiting The Philippines, the two James’s were able to join Angelina Bakery at the 11th annual International Bakery Fair Exhibition in Manila, where one of our Flexi-Plus machines was on display sealing bags of the bakery’s bread.
Select Bag Sealers are now pleased to have appointed our first ever distributor in The Philippines, JCG Marketing, and the team are already looking forward to heading East again as we prepare to attend the Bakery China exhibition in Shanghai in May.
“Since we purchased our first Flexi-Sealer we have been immensely impressed with the vast product range that the machine can comfortably handle; coupled with its ease of use and user friendly controls, we have been able to improve our operational efficiencies and reduce our down times and product changeovers dramatically. We are now in the process of purchasing our third machine which proves our trust and faith in SBS as our preferred choice in bag sealers.”
