Double Celebration for Boxway Packaging Group

BoxWay Packaging Group Limited, the innovative, customer-focussed, design-led, flexographic and digital print corrugated packaging business, is celebrating two-fold; the culmination of its first two years of continuous investment in the business as well as the second anniversary since its launch.

Innovative BoxWay Packaging Group Limited has reached the final stage of its two-year investment programme, during which the business has invested almost £3m 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 best-in-class printed and plain corrugated packaging for its customers.

Simultaneously, BoxWay is celebrating its second birthday and its establishment as a unique 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.

Andrew Woollard, CEO, BoxWay Packaging Group, comments on the success of the last two years: “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 focussed 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 continues: We have invested heavily in new machinery at both sites. In Peterlee we have added a Kolbus Specialty Gluer, a Weipong 5 Colour Rotary Die Cutter, an Eterna Flat Bed 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 Flat Bed 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.
