VACUUM PACKAGING MACHINE SALES
We have been selling a wide range of vacuum packers for 24 years. Because we also repair and service them we have the knowledge and experience gained from that to give you the best independent advice on the selection of a new or pre-owned machine, make and model.
You will no doubt start to buy online – so why buy through us?We will always look at your individual production requirements and advise on a machine which will meet those at an affordable price and at the same time provide flexibility to cover experience gained by you in vacuum packing.
We do not restrict you to particular makes or models – with us the world is your oyster
The latest generation of machines provides a wide range of standard features and optional extras, which give even smaller machines great versatility in modern food packaging.
We constantly monitor those machines, which are at the forefront of vacuum technology, using our knowledge and servicing experience to keep the price, quality, usability, maintenance and servicing costs at the top of our list of essential features.
For most machine sales we come to you to do the installation
At the bottom of the range, the Compact machines are designed and built to the same high standards as the other machines in the range. However, some of the more advanced features have been removed, to keep costs to a minimum. The control systems are simplified versions of the larger machines computer controlled PCB, and smaller pumps are fitted. – We recommend these only on a price and low use basis.
Many of the features that used to be optional extras have now been included in the mid and top range machines as standard.
Your process requirements may benefit from the optional extras available and we can advise on these.
Depending on the type, size, manufacturer and price any of the features listed in the Vacuum Packer Features section on the machines page may be included as standard or provided as optional extras.
IMPORTANTLY WE GIVE YOU A FULL GUARANTEE AND WE COME TO YOU TO PUT FAULTS RIGHT [ or use our Ship in / ship out service if necessary] – MANY ON LINE VENDORS, EVEN FROM LARGE NATIONAL COMPANIES ONLY OFFER RETURN TO BASE WARRANTIES SOMETIMES WITH CONDITIONAL RETURN TRANSPORT CHARGES.
WE CAN ARRANGE VARIOUS FINANCING PACKAGES AND PAYMENT TERMS
Whichever machine you decide to purchase, it is often a significant item of expenditure which will become an indispensable working tool. Like a car or van to keep it in tip top working condition it requires regular servicing and we at Kenneth James Ltd can continue our support to you by providing that service.
EBAY & AUCTION PURCHASERS
In these difficult times we realise that many businesses will want to save money by buying at auction or on auction web sites, and we fully support this intention. However our experience demonstrates that many such machines either do not work satisfactorily or in some cases at all. The fact that a vacuum packer appears to work on trial does not mean that it is working properly to its full capacity, or drawing a sufficient vacuum to provide the correct level for preservation of the food packed.
You also need to be aware that some older popular machines are treated as obsolescent and no longer supported for spares by their original manufacturer. For example for one such the main control boards have to be returned to factory for repair at a phenomenal cost and delay.
In some cases there are no UK distributors carrying a full range of spares necessitating procurement from manufacturers who may not use card purchase schemes for foreign purchases resulting in the cost and delay of international transfers and costly delivery charges.
We can provide our ‘Ship in – Service – Ship out’ arrangement as set out in our service details to bring your auction purchase into full effective working order.
OTHER FOOD MACHINERY
We can advise on and supply many other food processing machines
We can supply a wide range of other machines including sausage fillers and linkers, slicers and dicers, mincers and mixers bandsaws and bowl cutters to meet your requirements
SPARES FOR ALL FOOD MACHINERY
We can also source spares and consumables for a wide variety of food machinery.
Using our knowledge of a wide range of food machinery, in addition to vacuum packers, we can procure a variety of spare parts either as OEM spares or generic parts to fit most machines, and best possible prices.
We also have the facility to have some mechanical parts which are no longer available as OEM spares to be manufactured bespoke for your machine usually at a lower cost than the OEM part.
