Ruth Evans visited new member Boxway Packaging Group’s Exeter facility early this month. With 3 operational facilities, based in Exeter, Telford & Peterlee, BoxWay Packaging Group is a new, independent corrugated packaging business, focusing on delivering innovative, customer centric packaging solutions for customers looking for:
- Shelf ready packaging
- Transit packaging
- E-commerce specific packaging
- Point of Sale & display, promotional and presentational packaging
- Design templates – a broad range of packaging styles
- Creative bespoke designs with multiple colours and inside and outside graphic options
- Photo-realistic 3D visuals and advanced digitally printed samples
- Flexographic, Digital and Lithographic print options
Ruth met with General Manager, Scott Reed and newly appointed Business Development Director, Nigel Williams.
BoxWay Packaging Group has invested in a HanWay Digital Printer in their Exeter facility and their site in Peterlee has invested in a Kolbus Autobox Multi-Nova gluing machine which compliments their gluing and taping facility, providing Boxway with the flexibility to operate short (50-100 boxes) and long runs (10,000 boxes) on small and large boxes (up to 2.5m x 4m print area) to short lead times.
The new Hanway digital printer has 4 colour photographic capability, as showcased in the gift pack Simon Gillard printed and made up for Ruth.
A variety of transit packs, accommodating 3×4 / 4×4 / 5×5 cans (with or without a “hidden compartment”) were showcased to Ruth, together with a variety of 3 / 6 bottle transit packs. All have the facility for printing both inside and outside.
Although Boxway is the new “kid on the block”, CEO, Andrew Woollard has nearly 40 years’ industry experience with Reed, Bowater, SCA, Smurfit Kappa and SAICA and Scott Reed has 20 plus years’ experience in the industry with Smurfit Kappa, Offset Print & Packaging, Skanem & SAICA giving a wide mix of knowledge in the packaging industry.
When asked about the environmental sustainability of the company, so important to their customer base going forwards, Scott noted that Boxway has solar panels covering the roof in Exeter, the company is planning for FSC® accreditation and looking towards a lighting project changing all main site lights to LED (all cardboard packaging is already 100% recyclable).
