Packaging World Magazine Features Rocket Industrial

Dual Cousins Titan Stretch Wrappers

Packaging World magazine focuses in on Frank Beverage Group and how a custom built stretch wrapping solution helped them handle over 900 pallets in a given night. See how Rocket Industrial partnered with Cousins Packaging to deliver a turnkey solution to their production problems.

Frank Beer Distributors, Inc., Middleton, WI, is a member of the Frank Beverage Group, a family-owned and operated beer, wine, and spirits distribution company. Frank Beer distributes products from Miller/Coors, New Glarus Brewing, Pabst, Constellation Brands, Heineken, Mike’s Hard Lemonade, Boston Beer Company, and many other domestic, craft, and import brands to thirteen counties in the southern Wisconsin area.

These various products arrive at the Frank Beer facility pre-packaged in flats and cases. Then every night after the orders come in for each grocery, c-store, liquor, and box store they are fully picked and stretch wrapped for the next day’s deliveries.

The beer distributor had been hand-wrapping single-pallet loads and picking with counterbalance forklifts. But Frank wanted to increase pallet wrap throughput to keep up with growing product demand.

Triple Pallet Mover

After evaluating various equipment, Frank decided to install automated pallet stretch wrapping and voice picking systems with walkie rider pallet trucks. Manufactured by Cousins Packaging, Inc., the palletizing equipment was sourced, installed, and is maintained by Rocket Industrial, Inc. Check out the article in Packaging World Magazine.

"We chose the Cousins equipment for three main reasons: We had prior successful experience with Cousins stretch wrap machines at our facility in Onalaska, Wisconsin. Cousins was willing to engineer a custom system to fits our needs, and the machines are priced very competitively."
