Riggs Autopack Ltd, a British manufacturer of high quality volumetric depositors and filling machines, transfer pumps and automatic conveyor filling lines, was praised for helping Clarks UK Ltd, a family-run business based in Newport, Wales, that produces natural sweeteners, syrups and dessert sauces, to grow at a rapid rate following several successful collaborations. Their first collaboration was back in 2009 when Clarks purchased its first semi-automatic depositor to accurately fill squeezy bottles. The company went on to purchase a second depositor from Riggs two years later, and began looking into ways to automate production beyond semi-automatic machines to cope with increasing sales and demand. In 2012 the company invested in a major automation upgrade with a Riggs Autopack 4 head automatic conveyor filling line with scroll feed system. This enabled the company to significantly expand production. In 2016 the company upgraded the two existing filling lines with automatic capping machines. It also increased capacity significantly with another Riggs Autopack automatic scroll feed system and gated filling line with automatic capping.
