История


Полковник Фрэнк Шеппи (Frank Sheppee) в 1907 году основал компанию, изначально производившую транспортные средства на паровой тяге, принадлежности для мотоциклов и мопедов, а также занимавшуюся пылесосами и стиральными машинами. Но к разработке специализированного машинного оборудования для стеклотарной промышленности компания перешла лишь в 1920-е годы. Эта сфера распространилась на разработку высокоскоростных стеклоформующих машин, а также на оборудование для передачи и транспортировки изделий.

Сейчас, используя свой опыт и инновации в области переставителей, загрузчиков лера и систем привода, компания является лидером в сфере решений по передаче и транспортировке изделий и широко известна стекольной отрасли по всему миру.

При современной скорости производства стеклотары, превышающей 1000 бутылок в минуту, все более выразительный акцент делается на инновациях и бесперебойной производительности. Компания Sheppee тесно сотрудничает с индивидуальными компаниями, чтобы предоставить экономически целесообразные решения проблем современного производства.

Чтобы поставлять такие решения, Sheppee располагает полным парком металлообрабатывающего оборудования, включая станки с ЧПУ, средствами CAD-проектирования и командой квалифицированных инженеров-электриков и механиков.

Компания Sheppee International Limited, основанная в апреле 1993 года, подхватила традицию новаторских инженерных разработок, заданную первоначальной семейной компанией Шеппи.
