Let's improve your boxes

Whatever your current box specification – we can improve it! Watch the films on how we can optimize your box in terms of performance, appearance and sustainability benefits.

Performance: Packaging optimization

We optimize your packaging with a design and material mix that offer superior product protection even in challenging conditions. Boxes based on our primary fibres are stronger than recycled material and protect your product better. Because they are stronger you can use less material and reduce packaging weight, which results in lower cost. In addition, you save money by reducing risk of damage and product waste.

Watch: Talking Performance

Sustainability: Reducing CO2 footprint by 50%

Material made of our primary fibres is sustainable by definition. It's renewable, recyclable, biodegrable, and sourced from responsibly managed forests. Its strength allows for packaging weight reduction. Lower weight means that less raw material, water and energy are used, and transport and warehousing requirements are reduced. This means lower cost and reduced carbon footprint.

Watch: Talking Sustainability

Appearance: Looking good all the way

Appeal is partly about strength, about how the box looks when it reaches the end customer. Damaged packaging is damage to the brand. Drawing on our long experience, we know how to balance the mix of fluting and liner to prevent flaws like washboarding, folding cracks, weak edges and poor print results. We have our own selection of white top kraftliners to offer excellent print results regardless of printing method.
