We were producing some high-capacity pockets and we wanted to better meet demand for this. We also wanted to add crash locking and the Petratto Metro enabled us to do that.”

He continues: “We heard about the machine a long time ago and it was always something we had been interested in. It was a good fit. It has opened up new options for existing customers and we have been able to introduce the services to new customers.”
