High-speed palletising has positive impact on the bottom line
Palletising solution handles 500 aerosol cans per minute per production line
Unilever is a global leader in the personal care market. The Leeds factory is the largest of its kind in Europe, employing 300 people. The factory produces popular brands in personal care, including Dove, Sure, Axe, and Lynx.
Implemented in just 4 weeks
Close collaboration throughout
Palletising 4 lines simultaneously
2000 cans palletised per minute, 24/7
The factory had partially outdated technology in its original palletising solution, limiting the possibilities to increase speeds on the production lines.
Close and effective collaboration between Unilever and DAN Palletiser ensured a new palletising system.
The palletising solution can handle high production capacity, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, ensuring increased productivity.

Project Manager at the Leeds factory, Gary Parkes, had positive experiences with DAN Palletiser from a similar palletising project at Nestlé. He was convinced that DAN Palletiser could deliver palletising equipment meeting the high-quality and capacity requirements. Consequently, DAN Palletiser became one of Unilever's preferred suppliers.

The palletising solution had to be implemented in just 4 weeks, posing a challenge due to limited space. This was addressed through carefully prepared layouts and the advantages offered by the MK8/2 palletiser with high-level infeed.

With a maximum capacity of 500 cans per minute per production line. No other palletising solution can match this high capacity.
”an integral part of our production facilities. We have a reliable system here that requires minimal maintenance and can operate at a very high speed. It means a lot for our flexibility and functionality. DAN Palletiser worked closely with us to develop the final solution, which works very efficiently with other parts of our production and our IT systems. It ensures a high degree of automation, thus increasing productivity and benefiting us in a highly competitive market,”
- Philip Jagger, Unilever
In addition to the successful installation and collaboration in Leeds, Unilever has invested in six fully automated MK3 palletisers from DAN Palletiser for their margarine factory in Katowice, Poland.
