Jim Beam the American Corporation known worldwide for its Bourbon recently acquired the Irish Distiller Cooley, famous for its exclusive range of malt whiskies.
These brands include the Greencore, Connemara, Tyrconnell and Kilbeggan.
As part of the purchase, Jim Beam have invested heavily at Cooley to improve the efficiency of the traditional distillery.
This has involved the supply of a refurbished Lita palletiser and automatic stretch wrapper from Blackstar Handling Systems.
Blackstar Handling Systems supplied and installed all the equipment required for the project including conveyors, pallet dispensers, palletiser, automatic wrapper, infeed conveyors, and case sealers to provide a full Turnkey solution.
The system was fully re-conditioned, assembled and tested at the Blackstar Handling factory in Skelmersdale, with the customers from Cooley being invited over to witness the trials-
“Hopefully bringing product samples to test but not necessarily on the machines”
The equipment was trialled tested and accepted by representatives of Jim Beam, Cooley.
Once accepted the equipment was stripped down for installation in Ireland and installed by Blackstar Handling Systems Engineers.
