Design and Innovation Always a Winner!
11 Apr 2017
Each springtime an in-house design and innovation conference takes place where our Managing Directors and Designers from each of our sites come together to share ideas and enter into a little healthy competition!
As well as formulating the basis for our group entries to UK Packaging and Starpack Awards the conference provides the perfect forum for the latest innovations and designs that we have achieved to be shared across the group and across industry sectors enhancing our capabilities to fulfil customer requirements.
At this year’s conference, Bristol scooped the design award for its Isotonic sports drinks range which has been specifically developed to support a sports drinks manufacturer that supplies its products to elite sports professionals across the UK. This was a revolutionary design which keeps the drinks at the required temperature during transit and ensures they arrive at their destination without damage or leakage all whilst maintaining the visual brand integrity.
Doncaster were awarded the innovation award for its supply chain solution for a large on line home improvements retailer which has seen a substantial saving for the client. This has been achieved through the re-packing of returned items which previously were treated as lost stock due to packaging damage.
“The calibre of our entries to the Design and Innovation awards was again very impressive and highlighted the commitment and desire of our staff to succeed and push the boundaries of corrugated packaging,” said Gavin Richardson CEO Boxes and Packaging. “Our ability to create innovative solutions places us as the first choice supplier for many premium brands – coupled with our reliability and service levels we are an ideal packaging partner across many manufacturing industries and retail sectors.”
