Wrappers by Robopac in Mexico Walmart of Mexico and Central America has chosen Robopac as reference supplier for the wrapping machines in use in its numerous product distribution centers spread throughout Mexico.
Thanks to the local dealer Eurotecsa, Robopac could further consolidate the partnership with the American giant, world leader in the distribution of food products.
Walmex (Walmart of Mexico and Central America) has a turnover of over 25.41 billion dollars (2018) and has 2,358 stores for a total of over 9 million square meters of retail space.
Mexico is the main market for Walmart outside the United States and accounts for 5% of global sales.
In assessing which technological wrapping solutions to adopt, Walmart asked the dealer Eurotecsa first of all for maximum protection of the palletized goods, due to the need for long transports that take place on roads that are not in perfect conditions. Another prerogative for Walmart has been to obtain reliable, durable and easy to use machines.
Also on the service front, Walmart requested the possibility of on-site machine maintenance.
The quality of the machines, which represent the state-of-art of technology, added to theimmediate availability of machines and spare parts by Eurotecsa the high quality of the stretch film and the 24/7 service guaranteed by the sub-dealers have been the success factors of the operation.

In particular, the Robopac machines operating in the eight Mexican Walmart destruction centers of non-perishable products are: 117 Masterplat PGS, the rotary tables able to protect the product and save films thanks to the pre-ironing they come with as standard; 32 Ecoplat PPS rotary tables; 12 semi-automatic wrappers with rotating arm Masterwrap XL; 6 Ecoplat Plus FRD; 3 Masterplat FRD.
