11 May TrakRap selected to participate in the ‘Scale-Up’ Project
TrakRap in Skelmersdale in one of only 30 companies in the UK selected to participate in a ‘scale-up’ project led by the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) and funded by the European Commission.
TrakRap, which manufactures retail-ready secondary packaging machinery, has been identified as a company with high growth potential by the EEN, the world’s largest support network for small and medium-sized enterprises with international ambitions.
The EEN brings together 3,000 experts from more than 600 member organisations and is active in more than 60 countries worldwide – all renowned for their excellence in business support.
“To be selected for this scheme by the EEN is a fantastic acknowledgement of the strength of our packaging system and the clear market need for innovative packaging solutions.
“We are already working with some of the biggest names in UK retail and manufacturing and, with the backing of EEN and the support of our partners, we’re confident we will achieve our ambitious growth objectives.”
Martin Leeming, Chief Executive of TrakRap
TrakRap was selected because of the growing interest in its patented ‘cold wrap’ packaging technology, which eliminates the need for traditional shrink wrap tunnels in food and fast-moving consumer goods manufacturing and replaces them with a 100% recyclable stretch film that requires no heat to apply.
The TrakRap system’s innovative technology reduces energy requirements by over 90% and reduces the use of plastics by over 60% compared to current shrink-wrapping technologies, offering additional financial and environmental benefits to users.
Well done TrakRap!
