20 Years Partnership

Tray sealing specialist Proseal and its supplier LC Automation are celebrating a successful 20-year partnership during which the two companies have risen to become leaders in their respective fields. LC Automation provides Proseal with a reliable supply of quality electrical components that form a key part in the manufacture of its market-leading tray sealing machines.

Queens Award for International Trade

Since the beginning of the companies’ relationship in 1998 – the year Proseal was founded – Proseal has established itself as the UK’s leading manufacturer of tray sealers. This recently culminated in the company winning the Queen’s Award for International Trade 2018.

During the same period, LC Automation has grown to become one of the UK’s leading technical distributors of automation, control and safety products. The company supplies Proseal with a range of electrical components from PLC’s, servos’ and a.c. Inverters, to sensors, power supplies and even the cables.

“LC Automation supplied the Mitsubishi components for our very first machine, the Proseal PR30, and we’ve been using them ever since,” explains Steve Ballantyne, Purchasing Manager at Proseal. “Their first-rate service and innovative components are essential to the smooth production & consistently high standard of our products – we count on them to continue delivering our leading-edge Proseal machinery.”

Fully Integrated Supply Chain

An important benefit of the relationship is that LC Automation is fully integrated into the Proseal supply chain, receiving a regular forecast of their machine requirements. This allows LC Automation to predict usage and ensure the components are always available when required, meaning there is no disruption to Proseal’s production schedule. In addition, Proseal receives expert technical support on all the products it purchases from LC Automation with additional support from a Key Account Manager.

Stronger Together

“LC Automation plays a vital but unsung role in what we do, and as we mark 20 years of partnership, we’d like to take the opportunity to thank the company for their continued excellent service,” says Steve Ballantyne. “We look forward to the next 20 years of working together, which I am sure will be even more successful!”

“On behalf of everyone at LC Automation I would like to congratulate the Proseal team on 20 successful years and winning the Queens Award to Industry. I believe Proseal’s success is down to three factors; excellent customer service, outstanding engineering which meets customer needs and just being nice people to deal with,” says Malcolm Chadwick, Managing Director of LC Automation.

You Can Rely on LC Automation to Deliver.

I know it doesn’t look very festive. there is no tinsel, no Christmas tree or even a Santa hat. In fact, you wouldn’t realise that Christmas is just around the corner.

There are Christmas tunes on the radio (We work hard, but we’re not Scrooges!) It couldn’t look less like Christmas, but this is the picture from our panel building workshop at the moment. 

Busier than ever

Our panel builders are busier than ever as more customers want to outsource their excess workload to LC Automation, especially when other companies might have already started winding down for Christmas. When I asked our Production Manager, Marc Wheeler when he can start thinking about his Christmas holiday, he joked; “11:59pm on Christmas Eve!”
