The most effective way to assess a new supplier and see how effective they will be at collaborating and working alongside your team is to hear testimonials from their customers.

Here’s what some of our customers have to say about working with CKF. If you would like to find out more about the actual solutions we designed, manufactured and installed for our clients, please take a look at our case studies page.

“We are delighted with the standard end of line robotic palletising cell installed by CKF which has already allowed us to increase throughput and streamline our operations. The installation was quick, smooth and to an extremely high standard. Our investment will serve us for many years as this solution can easily be repurposed if we decide to upgrade or change our operations. It has allowed us to remove repetitive manual handling and reallocate valuable personnel to more interesting tasks.”

Maintenance Coordinator, Vandemoortele

Mondelez and CKF have had a long and successful relationship. CKF have undertaken all sizes of projects for us and worked in a collaborative way to overcome some difficult technical problems and develop some really novel solutions to our challenges. I have personally worked with the CKF team for over 15 years and I really appreciate their technical knowledge, professionalism and can do attitude!

The design and engineering of the Coffee Logs bag Auto Packer by CKF has successfully delivered for bio-bean. It’s an innovative solution that enables us to scale our production whilst retaining our fully sustainable and unique product packaging. It has also enhanced the productivity and profitability of our business.

Throughout the project CKF’s understanding of our manufacturing strategy, and in particular our packaging requirements, along with our current technical capability ensured key milestones were met. Like with most innovative and technically challenging projects, CKF were able to sufficiently address challenges which included variations in our technical requirements as well as supply chain issues arising from the COVID-19 pandemic.

As a company we’re pleased we chose CKF as a supplier for such a significant piece of equipment. We look forward to partnering with them in the future as we expand our business further.

Chief Technology Officer, bio-bean

When we approached CKF for an automation solution we were convinced we needed a Robotic arm palletising solution. When CKF visited our site they did a full assessment and worked with us to get a proper understanding of what we were trying to achieve.

With this evidence they proposed two solutions, the first, a Robotic arm solution, which would work but took up a vast amount of floor space. The second option involved a much simpler and easily maintained layer palletiser solution which opened-up the majority of our floor space and much better utilised the area available. CKF discussed all the pros and cons of both systems equally and it helped us understand that the layer palletiser solution not only provided better utilisation of our space, it also allowed for future development of our process at very little cost. It also meant that during our low periods we would not have as much capital equipment under-utilised.

The level of engineering CKF put into the proposals stage of the process helped us to make educated decisions and select the correct solution. CKF ensured that any concerns we had were physically tested to reassure us – they even sent engineers to the Netherlands to trial and demonstrate the capability of their suggested equipment using our products.

It was the unbiased engineering support and advice given throughout the process, along with their proven track record in palletising that meant CKF stood head and shoulders above the competition and we had no hesitation in awarding the job to CKF.

Head of Logistics, Laithwaite's Wine

We were delighted with the palletising system that CKF Systems installed for us. Automating this part of our plant has simplified our processes and also increased safety for our workforce. This is the first step on our automation journey and we were really impressed with the training and support our team received from CKF which ensured that the whole implementation process ran really smoothly

CKF supplied a complete case handling and multi-palletising system for a green field new factory build.  Their approach was professional and competent at every stage of the project, succeeding in providing a flexible highly automated solution.  This included incorporation of 3rd party equipment, which CKF managed as a complete package of works.
