Skelmersdale-based TrakRap secures £85k funding

Skelmersdale-based packaging company, TrakRap has been awarded a grant by Innovate UK, a grant scheme which offers funding to SMEs to engage in R&D projects in the strategically important areas of science, engineering and technology.

The £85k Smart: Innovate UK grant will enable the company to develop a proof of concept for its automated stretch wrapping system for heat sensitive products and aerosols.

This is a key next step in the commercialisation of TrakRap’s alternative solution to shrink wrapping in this highly challenging sector of the packaging market.

CEO of TrakRap, Martin Leeming, said: “Aerosols have always presented the packaging industry with some very significant challenges.

“The unique geometry of the pressurised canisters, along with highly inflammable propellants means safety and flexibility in pack formats is top of the list for manufacturers, over and above the everyday considerations of cost and environment.

“The industry has managed this fantastically well over the years, but has always been seeking a safer, more energy efficient solution.

“We believe we have that solution in the TrakRap system.”
