Reeds Corrugated Cases, Lydbrook, a look inside the factory.

Machine in Reeds factory

A Machine in Factory at Reed Corrugated Cases, Lydbrook.

Can anyone describe what is going on?

John Wilcox added: "... You will probably get info on this anyway but in case- no pun intended, not, I believe this is a machine known to all as the 113 printer. Its essential work was to slot and score blanks and at the same time if necessary print in 1 or 2 colours. This meant a piece of corrugated board was ready to have a joint made at the one corner which created a corrugated case. It was heavily emphasised at any training that cardboard boxes were not made at Lydbrook. Happy times".

Heather Powell added: "... the man in the picture feeding the 113 machine is my husband Geoff Powell who worked at the factory from 1974 to 1978".
