Welcome to Debby, Protective Packaging’s New FC

I joined the company in January this year as Financial Controller. When I first joined Protective Packaging I just assumed we made protective bags in all shapes and sizes. I have since found out, under the very watchful eye of two of our warehouse staff, and as I’ve learnt more about the company’s activities, that it’s not just a foil bag that we produce.

I learnt what a Tiltwatch sensor is, what shock and humidity detectors were and finally realised what all those little desiccant bags that we all get in everything we buy were actually for. I usually get them in shoe boxes and I buy lots of shoes; I should have been called Imelda Marcos. I could probably supply Protective Packaging with a year’s supply of desiccant.

We create bespoke bags for all walks of life (with the correct shoes of course) so if you have any weird and wonderful requirements for any of our bags then please get in touch.

Gone But Not Forgotten

Today we celebrated the life of our colleague John Budden who passed away on Friday 4th April.

John was a true gentleman, friend and colleague who will be sadly missed by us all.

John Budden – 2nd January 1967 – 4th April 2014

 John Budden RIP

The Dash” by Linda Ellis

I read of a man who stood to speak

At the funeral of a friend.

He referred to the dates on his coffin,

From the beginning to the end.

He noticed that first came his date of birth

And spoke the following date with tears,

But he said what mattered most of all

Was the dash in between those years.

For that dash represents all the time

That he spent alive on Earth.

And now only those who loved him

Know what that little line is worth.

For it matters not how much we own:

The cars, the house, the cash,

What matters  is how we live and love

And how we spend our dash.

Donations in John’s memory will go to MacMillan Cancer Support – www.justgiving.com/johnbudden

New Face at Protective Packaging

I was welcomed into Protective Packaging Ltd back in November 2013 as the HR Officer. As part of my induction into the Company I spent some time in each of the departments learning about the different innovative products that are manufactured such as the 3 dimensional Barrier Foil Bags, the Drum Liners and F.I.B.C liners, and how these products provide climatic packaging solutions to different industries globally.  Foil Bags

In my short time here I feel I have got to know everyone and understand the key responsibilities that they have. What has been clear to me from the offset is that the people here at Protective Packaging Ltd have so much expertise and enthusiasm, whether it be providing customers with a great service, designing the Foil Bags in line with specific requirements, manufacturing the products to a high standard and distributing them in a timely manner, everyone is committed to meeting our customer needs first time every time.

I look forward to continuing to support the human resource function in order to maintain the high performance culture and ongoing development of our workforce so that we continue to provide an exceptional service.

Protective Packaging’s Grand National Charity Sweepstake

The annual Grand National takes place tomorrow and as always, here at Protective Packaging Limited, we have done our annual sweepstake. All employees have paid £2 to pick out a horse’s name from a foil laminate pouch, to be in with a chance of winning some money. However, this year, we are doing things a bit differently. Instead of all the money going into the prize pot, we are donating £50 of the prize money to Macmillan Cancer Support.

We are also having a raffle in April, where all employees can pay £5 (or more if they wish!) for their name to be put into a foil bag. On the day of the raffle, a name will be pulled out at random and the winner will get an extra paid day’s holiday to take this year. This time, all the money will go towards Macmillan Cancer Support. Our aim is to raise £250 for the charity from both activities.

In the past we have raised money for charities such as The British Heart Foundation and we often “Wear it Pink” on the selected day to raise money for Breast Cancer Campaign.

All employees pull together for these types of events, to show our support to charities which do an amazing job at supporting people through illness and saving lives. I am proud to be involved and look forward to The Grand National tomorrow. Come on Wayward Prince!!!

Sophie, Customer Support
