SPS specialises in automatic packaging systems for bakery goods and biscuits, stacked or on edge, as well as sandwich filling systems for biscuits and wafers. Main markets are Europe, the USA, the Middle and Far East and China.SPS builds systems to pick and sort products arriving from conveyor ovens (biscuits) or cooling tunnels (chocolate bars), as well as various automatic feeding systems. Machinery includes high-speed flow-wrappers for single-portion products, multipacks and products arranged on edge, fillers for single or double-flavour fillings, various type of ancillary equipment and complete lines.Continuous research and development, on which SPS spends 3 per cent of turnover, together with regular training updates for staff, have allowed SPS to achieve the best possible use of technology within the design of its machines and automatic lines. These are also built using the highest levels of manufacturing technology employed in the industry. The technical department works both independently and in conjunction with PFM. Servicing and spare parts departments are structured for fast response to customer requirements, including remotely through the Teleservice on-line help system.Over the past two years company turnover has grown annually by more than 15 per cent.
