ISO 9001 and 14001 helps us drive the business forward in Quality and Environmental management, coupled with the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety you can be certain we take our corporate and social responsibilities seriously.
We offer corrugated packaging requirements designed to meet your needs. With market leading printing capabilities, we can offer retail ready packaging that helps brand recognition and a product that catches the consumer’s eye, boosting sales. In addition to this we provide conventional packaging that is extremely versatile and is used across a plethora of industries.
With stock holding facilities we can Vendor Manage Inventory (VMI) for customers, usually this is for fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) customers that require us to work strategically with them to meet their customers’ ever changing demands. Being an independent business allows us to make decisions very quickly and react to customer needs. This Unique Selling Point (USP) has helped us win business from the larger organisations that cannot offer this speed of decision making and flexibility.
Operating our own transport fleet allows us to align all packaging deliveries to our customer requirements, in conjunction with this our Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) schedule ensures our machines have minimum downtime which means we always hit our On Time in Full (OTIF) target. It is our aim to ensure that when a Packaging Buyer places an order, they can be rest assured it will arrive when they have asked for, and in full.
Operating our own transport fleet consisting of 12 Trucks, delivering packaging nationwide, we need to be as efficient as possible and the Optifleet management tool has offered huge improvements for the Transport department.
As well as being a superb business budgeting tool it also helps us to save time and plan effectively, and it is these types of efficiencies that keeps our business competitive and continuing to deliver excellent levels of customer service with the agility to respond to our customer’s needs.
