Double celebration for Boxway Packaging Group

Packaging Solutions

BoxWay Packaging Group is ‘doing the double’ with its celebrations. First, the culmination of its first two years of continuous investment in the business, and secondly, it has reached its second anniversary.

Having reached the final stage of its two year investment programme, the company has invested almost £3 million in developing its two operations in Peterlee, County Durham, and Exeter in Devon. This significant sum has been spent on all aspects of the business, including investment in infrastructure and IT systems, people and machinery and design and finance software. BoxWay is in an enviable position to meet the ever evolving and sophisticated requirements of its SME and blue chip customers across the UK who seek tailor made, high quality corrugated packaging where small runs as well as larger volumes of production can equally be catered for.

The recruitment of knowledgeable, talented and committed staff, along with their training and ongoing personal development, has played an essential role in the development of the business which now employs 70 staff. This, together with significant investment in the purchase of sophisticated new machinery and the upgrading of existing equipment ensures BoxWay is widening its capability and increasing its capacity for the business to deliver high quality printed and plain corrugated packaging for its customers.

Simultaneously, the company is celebrating its second birthday and its establishment as a national and independent player in the design led, bespoke flexo and digital arena targeting customers with a specific desire for distinctive, quality corrugated products where bespoke run sizes are important.

CEO Andrew Woollard commented, ‘I am delighted to announce the first two phases of our bold investment plan for our sites in Exeter and Peterlee have now been very successfully completed. Since our launch in 2021 the exciting investment phases, which have focused on infrastructure and machinery simultaneously, have enabled us to significantly expand our customer offering and the measures implemented across both the Peterlee and Exeter sites have boosted our capacity to deliver a wider portfolio of high quality, design led products and services for businesses across the UK that wish to grow or to evolve into new markets. As we celebrate this month our second anniversary, we are looking forward to an exciting future building on the successes we have already achieved.’

Andrew continued, ‘We have invested heavily in new machinery at both sites. In Peterlee we have added a Kolbus specialty gluer, a Weipong five colour rotary die cutter, an Eterna flatbed die cutter, a Midas gluer and a Kongsberg sample cutting table to complement our existing portfolio, while Exeter is benefiting from adding a water based ink Hanway digital printer, an Eterna flatbed die cutter, a SuperNova multi point gluer upgrade and a large format Kongsberg digital cutting table. A finance hub has also been established in Telford to centralise and develop our systems and infrastructure.’

These important additions to the BoxWay Packaging Group’s sites are proving invaluable as the business furthers its ambitions to continue to grow significantly in dynamic new markets.
