Supporting the UK automotive industry
25 May 2021
As one of the preferred suppliers to the automotive industry in the UK, we have years of experience in creating packaging solutions across all elements of the industry.
Pleasingly, April 2021 saw the first growth in car sales for many months; 141,600 were sold during the month according to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) and, whilst that is positive, the industry as a whole is still recovering from the effects of total closure last year.
Meeting automotive expectations
Whilst the industry continues to recover, it is still facing challenges. There are still issues concerning the manufacturing and supply of microchips. The proposed ban of Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) cars from 2030, is putting the industry and charging network under increasing pressure and, with other supply chain challenges, it’s important that packaging suppliers are chosen who have experience so that all needs of packaging supply to the automotive industry are met. Our outstanding OTIF and robust stock and serve solutions ensures productions lines are supported efficiently and effectively.
From car accessories to heavy plant parts
Whether it’s a car care kit that needs an eye-catching point of sale display, or a spare part for a colossal heavy plant machine that needs to navigate global supply chains, we have a solution that will support each and every requirement.
Our teams are adept at idea sharing and driving forward solutions to support time saving initiatives and the ongoing desire to eradicate less environmentally friendly components within packaging.
The teams across the UK design, manufacture and supply everything from point-of-sales display packs to large boxes for the bonnets and bumpers of the UK’s most luxury car brand. In addition, transit packs for tractor and HGV engines and car parts are manufactured to allow global shipping from the manufacturers UK bases.
