In March of 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic hit the world, many packaging manufacturers had to quickly gear up both capacity and capability. Below are three examples of LONGFORD’s unique ability to design and manufacture custom solutions for COVID-19 test kits and COVID-19 pharmaceutical packaging literature for test kits.

In March of 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic hit the world, many packaging manufacturers had to quickly gear up both capacity and capability. Below are three examples of LONGFORD’s unique ability to design and manufacture custom solutions for COVID-19 test kits and COVID-19 pharmaceutical packaging literature for test kits.


A large diagnostic company needed several custom feeders and autoloaders to feed, count and stack pharmaceutical diagnostic tests for COVID-19 test kits. Longford was able to design and built a total of ten different C350/AL350 feeders and autoloaders for the clients.




Many of the COVID-19 test kits and auxiliary components need to be transferred from manufacturing plants to retail pharmacies and/ or hospitals. Longford provided multiple desiccant absorption feeding machines named as the SF375 to feed desiccants from roll format into the infeed of horizontal flow packing machines.




Along with several test kit items, the COVID-19 test kits need to be in multiple languages for the European market along with diagrams and instructional pamphlets. For one large pharma leaflet and packaging company, Longford developed a complete turnkey PIGGYBACK / PIGGYBANDER packaging line. This line can collate, glue together and then band multiple language inserts and instructional leaflets for many different medicines including COVID-19 test kits.



Longford announces that it is a supplier to LumiraDx UK, for a custom feeding and counting systems to help make test kits for the global fight against
COVID- 19. LumiraDx is a specialized diagnostics company and have its main manufacturing and research and development facilities in  Stirling, Scotland.  

Having installed one custom Longford system in 2018, additional systems have now been ordered.  

Commented Graham Collisson of Longford...

"We are pleased yet humbled to play a very modest role in helping LumiraDx in their endeavour to beat this horrific illness. The kits they make will help tremendously in this cause."

Robert Kiely - Managing Director of Kliklok International Ltd. said “We were tasked to provide a complete line solution including conveyors, cascade loaders, MEC automatic carton machine, spoon feeder, case packer and leaflet feeder. The leaflet feeder was outside of our portfolio so we heavily rely on good quality manufactures to work with”.
