Walkers Midshire ‘beefs up’ production with Toshiba

Walkers Midshire Foods has installed the new Toshiba B-SA4 industrial bar code printer to meet its growing demand for increased label production.

The company produces a massive quantity of packed sausages each week, for customers including the leading UK supermarket chains.

Ivan Martin, who oversees label production for Walkers Midshire, said: “We had been using the Toshiba B-472 printer for six years it was very reliable and accurate, but our growth required us to look for a new solution.”

“Our supplier Ampersand recommended the Toshiba B-SA4, once installed we were able to see immediate improvements – it easily coped with and met the high demands of the company’s weekly label requirement with no delays, problems or rejections – operating for some 16 hours a day.”
