Sinclair Animal Health (Beaphar)
30% faster filling speeds using Adelphi’s XYZ Distributor
Sinclair Animal Health, a part of Beaphar UK, have been an innovative creator of pet products for over 75 years. They approached Adelphi requiring a machine to fill smaller volume containers to maximise production efficiency for their products including anti-parasite medicines, dog toothpaste and pet behaviour spray.
Adelphi were delighted to supply an Accuramatic and XYZ Distributor to meet Sinclair Animal Health’s needs.
Wayne Le-Floch, Maintenance Manager at Sinclair Animal Health recently spoke with Adelphi to discuss their investment in the XYZ Distributor, as well as their existing Response Benchtop Filler.
“The XYZ has sped up the process by approx. 30%”
Expanding from 15 employees to over 500 during their lifetime, shows how demand for Sinclair Animal Health products has increased. The XYZ Distributor fills an average of 12-15 containers per minute; producing a potential 7,200 containers per 8 hour shift, to enable Sinclair Animal Health to meet their increasing requirements.
“We fill approximately 20 different types of containers”
The XYZ Distributor is a versatile filling machine designed to quickly adapt to fill multiple different products. For Sinclair Animal Health, the machine has been programmed to fill 15ml, 30ml and 50ml containers, with recipe recall at the push of a button, leaving operators free to assist with other production requirements.
Both Adelphi Manufacturing and Sinclair Animal Health began as family business in the 1940s, and understand the importance of long-standing customer relationships based upon communication and trust. As Wayne says, Adelphi Manufacturing “[make] the purchasing process very straight forward”. In 2019, Beaphar celebrated their 25-year UK anniversary, and Adelphi Manufacturing are proud to have contributed to their positive trajectory of growth.
A shared value for both organisations is product and service quality. Adelphi Group of Companies were named ‘Manufacturing Family Business of the Year’ – at the prestigious 2021 Family Business of the Year awards, while Beaphar merged their companies to win Manufacturer of the Year in 2009.
