PadPak

This versatile cushioning solution is perfect for shipping fragile, valuable and awkwardly shaped products while helping free some of your warehouse space (one block of paper can replace around 3 bags of void fill).

It is also clean and easy to recycle for customers. Automated dispensers can be set up to release fixed lengths of paper, helping reduce packaging waste and manage void fill more economically.

WrapPak Waved Paper Pads

The innovative waved paper pads have been designed to offer one solution for multiple packaging applications, including box lining, wrapping, thermal insulation and block and bracing.

This helps minimise the amount of different packing materials needed to pack products, improving sustainability and simplifying packaging processes.

The pads are renewable and 100% recyclable and offer an enhanced product protection in transit due to their great shock absorption properties.

Paper for Thermal Packaging

Paper-based thermal packaging solutions are perfect for shipping ambient, chilled and frozen products such as meats, pizzas, pet food, medicines and chocolates.

They are environmentally-friendly, sustainable and made from natural materials, offering an excellent alternative to similar plastic-based packaging solutions.

Paper Bubble Wrap

This cutting-edge product is made of 100% recycled paper and is fully recyclable, which makes it a perfect, environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional bubble wrap.

Deep indentions in the paper provide excellent shock absorbing properties, ensuring reliable product protection in transit.

Paper bubble wrap is available in various sizes and can be used to wrap around items as well as to fill gaps inside packages for enhanced cushioning of delicate and / or expensive products.

Biofilm

Made from waste by-products from industrial potato processing, biofilm is 100% biodegradable and home-compostable to EN 13432 standards. It is also dust and particle free and does not go mushy, when it gets wet.

It is supplied flat on a roll and can be inflated into air pillows as and when required, which makes it an excellent space-saving solution. The pillows can be easily pierced and placed in a home compost bin after use for simple, environmentally- friendly disposal.

Paper Mailing Bags

These environmentally-friendly paper bags are recyclable and have a self-sealing strip that helps ensure products are securely locked inside the bag during transport.

As no extra adhesive is required, the packages look neat and the in-built tear strip makes them easy to open – all this contributes to creating a positive customer experience. The bags are available in different sizes to suit different products and packaging needs.

Gummed Paper Tape

Made from natural, sustainable and naturally degradable materials, gummed paper tape is 100% recyclable and does not need to be removed from boxes before recycling.

It offers enhanced parcel protection due to its strength and tamper-evident properties, which makes it a perfect environmentally-friendly alternative to standard packing tape.

Reusable packaging
solutions

Cardboard Shredders

Cardboard shredders enable you to quickly produce a protective void fill chip or protective matting from everyday waste cardboard. They are a cost-effective way to reduce your business carbon footprint and demonstrate eco-friendly credentials.

The packaging produced provides optimum protection against damage during transit and handling and is suitable for use for machine parts, computer hardware, electronic components, glass, pottery and porcelain.

Using a cardboard shredder is a quick and easy way to reuse your corrugate waste and produce eco-friendly protective packaging on demand.

Pick Bins

Made from heavy-duty corrugated fibreboard, pick bins are a quick, reusable and cost-effective solution designed to reduce picking times and improve warehouse efficiently. They are easy to assemble and can be dismantled and stored flat for future use, helping maximise storage space and respond quickly to spikes in demand.

Corrugated pick bins are made to order and there are various bin access options available, including fully and partially open faces as well as straight and chute fronts. The design can also include a supported inner tray to subdivide the bin.

Plastic pallets

Plastic pallets are a reliable, resuable and long-lasting alternative to their wooden counterparts.

They are both leightweight and stoackable, which helps reduce transport costs and save storage space. They are also easy to clean and splinter-free and their round edges make them easy and safe to handle.

Archive Boxes

These multi-purpose cardboard boxes with hinged lids are perfect for storing and transporting home and office items such as invoices, delivery notes and household bills.

They are delivered flat to save space and are quick and easy to assemble. They are also 100% recyclable and can be folded and stored away when no longer in use, which makes them a perfect reusable solution.

Material reduction
solutions

12 Micron Stretch Film

12 micron high performance film helps use less material to wrap a pallet without compromising load stability, offering both improved product protection and reduced packaging waste.

This has a positive impact on the environment while helping improve efficiency and generate savings in many areas of your operation, including material usage, operator roll changes and waste disposal.

Gummed Paper Tape

Made from natural, sustainable and naturally degradable materials, gummed paper tape is 100% recyclable and does not need to be removed from boxes before recycling.

It offers enhanced parcel protection due to its strength and tamper-evident properties, which makes it a perfect environmentally-friendly alternative to standard packing tape.

Stretch Machines (AETNA)

Automated stretch wrapping machines help reduce the amount of material used to wrap each pallet, positively impacting the environment and generating significant savings in material costs.

They are fast and prevent film breaks, which increases productivity and ensures maximum load protection in storage and transit.

Auto Boxing Machines

Automated box-sizing machines measure the size of products and adjust the box size to offer the best fit for the content.

This helps ensure only the necessary amount of packing material is used without compromising product protection. The machine also folds the box and seals the lid on, significantly speeding up packing lines and increasing productivity.

Auto Bagging Machines

Auto bagging machines operate on similar principles to auto boxing systems. They automatically place products inside customised bags which are then cut to size to ensure optimum fit.

This ensures reduced material wastage and allows multi-sized products to be despatched efficiently with minimum labour efforts and time constraints.

Automatic Case Tapers

Automatic tape machines dispense pre-set lengths of tape, reducing the amount of packaging waste and speeding up the packing process.

Consistency of application ensures the tape does not break away from the box, making the whole parcel tougher and more secure. All this makes shipments look neat while ensuring products are well protected during storage and transportation.
