Deva Hawarden use Nu-Star Reel Pushers
Deva Hawarden Board and Display (a specialist paper & board converter and laminator to the packaging & display industry) have recently taken delivery of their second Nu-Star Power Pusher at their manufacturing facility in Hawarden, Flintshire.
This second Power Pusher has been supplied on a 5 year hire contract as part of the Deva Hawarden expansion program.
The Power Pushers are used to push 1 ½ tonne paper rolls onto the three sheeting machines and one laminator at its Flintshire site.
Paul Shepard (Deva Hawarden’s Production Manager) commented:
“The first Nu-Star machine has operated problem-free for over 18 months and has been both a Health & Safety and Productivity benefit in the plant. It has also proven popular with the staff, so we had no hesitation in choosing to Contract Hire another Power Pusher to service our recently acquired third sheeter”.
