N.P. Seymour will be offering sales and service for the Posie Packer Produce Bag Labeling machine for the UK market. Mr. Nick Seymour the Managing Director explains, “ The bag labeling machine fits into our present offering of labour saving machines to allow our clients to get their fruit from bud to box profitably. Furthermore it will allow our company to expand to not only supplying the mechanical needs of top fruit growers, but also for growers of leafy greens.
