LPS Closed for Thanksgiving Holiday
Liquid Packaging Solutions will close Wednesday afternoon, November 23rd, 2016 for the Thanksgiving Holiday. The offices will remain closed until Monday, November 28th, 2016 at 8 A.M. Central Time. The production floor remains crowded with end of the year projects, from tabletop machinery to complete lines including power conveyors, rinsing machines, bottle fillers, capping machines and more! This short break will work to rejuvenate the production floor at LPS while also allowing for an early start to end of the year inventory.
The 2017 production schedule is quickly filling up as we enter the last month of the current year, so we encourage anyone with a time-sensitive project to contact LPS as soon as possible to discuss lead times and production schedules. While we are preparing to finish up an incredibly busy 2016, we do not expect to slow down any heading into the New Year, especially given the number of new projects discussed at this year's PACK EXPO show, with packagers both familiar to LPS and those just entering the industry.
The past year again brought a number of packaging projects from producers of distilled spirits, as the industry continues to grow and prosper across the United States and into Canada as well. LPS also worked with a number of different producers of chemicals across several different industries in 2016, which resulted in custom packaging machinery, including filling equipment manufactured with HDPE frames and components versus the typical stainless steel construction. Foods such as sauces, dressings, honey and other beverages also made up a large part of the packagers LPS worked with this past year. For 2017, we expect to see more projects from each of these industries as well as many others. Each year always seems to bring a new product or project to challenge our team of designers, engineers and builders into finding a solution that strays from the typical machinery, and it is often these challenges that lead us to new designs as well as better ideas and concepts that lead to better packaging solutions.
Our Representatives are currently in the process of contacting everyone who visited the booth at PACK EXPO 2016, but again, for those with time-sensitive projects, please do not hesitate to contact the company directly, and toll-free, at 1-888-393-3693 to discuss projects or current needs. For those just starting the process of looking into packaging machinery, we encourage you to browse our website to see all the different options and equipment manufactured by LPS, including our filling machines, capping machines and so much more. Of course, LPS Packaging Specialists will also answer questions to get you started and heading in the right direction, as we consider ourselves a partner for packagers, more than just a manufacturing company.
Wishing everyone a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving as well as a great ending to 2016!
