Our workforce

We currently have a total of 70 staff employed across the three plants with a significant number of long-serving employees. We are committed to working closely with our staff by ensuring that they are empowered and involved in decision making.

A snapshot of our history

All of our sites have been operating since the 1980s, under varying ownership. Telford was opened in 1989 by Reed Corrugated Cases and Exeter and Peterlee were both opened in 1985 by Bowater.

The three sites were under the ownership of SCA in August 2008 when SAICA acquired the UK SCA conventional corrugated business.

BoxWay acquired the three plants and became the official owner on 1st June 2021.

Our regional spread

We have an excellent regional spread across the three sites to deliver our ‘Fleet of Foot’ service on a nationwide basis.

Our Peterlee Plant in County Durham services our customers in the North of England; our Telford Plant in Shropshire is ideally placed to cover the Midlands and our Exeter Plant in Devon covers all of the South of England. All three plants are located in business parks close to major motorways and transport links.

Our sustainability

Our commitment to being sustainable and friendly to the environment is at the heart of everything we do.

In line with the government law of achieving zero greenhouse gas net emissions by 2050, BoxWay Packaging Group are committed to delivering by this date, if not sooner. Some of our plans include:

  • Energy - solar panels are installed in Exeter to provide a sustainable form of energy for the production process
  • Lighting - we are in the process of changing all of our lighting to LED
  • Recycling - all of our cardboard packaging is 100% recyclable
  • Product certification - all BoxWay sites are FSC certified by the Forest Stewardship Council® meaning that we help support the future of forests and the people and wildlife who call them home
