Saxon Packaging has been working in collaboration with Beer Box Shop for over a year. The two companies are able to supply the brewery industry with a wide range of beer packaging solutions and options from single bottle gift packs through to 24 bottle transit packs.
This year was the first year where the two companies worked together to create a flexo printed beer advent calendar, which Beer Box Shop offered on its website. This was not however the first time Beer Box Shop had its own beer advent calendar, but it was very keen to work alongside another packaging company and to re-look at the existing design.
After discussing the requirement the way developed to reduce the material quantity thus resulting in a 10% saving in manufacturing costs and also a further saving on the delivery cost (as less weight). This was great news for Beer Box Shop, its customers and also the environment, as less packaging was used!
The brains behind this new design was Stuart Haggar, business development manager. ‘I created a design which involved a locking base to ensure the advent box maintained its sturdiness and ensured the flute direction of the cardboard was optimised for stability. I am really happy with the end result and that we have a happy customer, and in turn, it has lots of happy customers!’ said Stu.
Simon Hulse, Beer Box Shop's managing director, said: ‘We have loved working on this project with Saxon Packaging and it has delivered an excellent solution which is more compact, has saved on production costs and is easier to construct for our customers. Stuart and the team at Saxon can always be relied upon to come up with unique ideas and we are over the moon with the final product.’
