BoxWay outlines ‘ambitious’ plans for growth

BOXWAY Packaging Group has outlined growth plans following the acquisition of Saica sheet plants in Exeter, Peterlee and Telford.

BoxWay said its focus is to deliver a ‘new approach and creative solutions’ to yield new innovations in corrugated packaging as well as ‘agile’ service to customers. The company added that plans include product development initiatives to capitalise on a ‘booming’ corrugated packaging market.

The group is now in independent ownership and in the hands of new CEO Andrew Woollard, who has nearly 40 years’ experience with Reed, Bowater, SCA, Smurfit Kappa and Saica.

He said, “BoxWay is totally committed to supporting current and new customers by providing an independent and entrepreneurial approach to like-minded businesses on a national basis. With the help of some exciting investment plans our ambition is to grow into new markets and alongside challenger brands that have evolved from the pandemic.

“We are in a very fortunate position to have an excellent regional spread across the three sites to deliver our services on a nationwide basis and respond to current and future customer needs as and when required.”

The growth strategy presented by BoxWay has been described as recognised by Saica Group as an ‘excellent opportunity for customers and employees’.

Brian Lister, country manager, Saica Pack UK, commented, “Saica Group is very confident that the new leadership and dedicated ownership promises a positive future for our customers, employees and the business at those plants. We remain committed to supporting the business and its three new sites after the transfer to ensure a smooth transition and ongoing growth.”
