Happy Halloween!

There were some spooky goings on Protective Packaging this week.   The staff canteen was decorated in a Halloween theme to hold our quarterly staff lunch, an event which allows everyone the opportunity to mix and have some fun.

With a bit of work and a lot of imagination the canteen was almost unrecognisable, even the ceiling was covered in our PP007  barrier foil material (black side out) bats, spiders and pumpkins were also made from our  foils, we know our foil has lots of uses  but Halloween decorations is a first!


Several games were held but the best by far had to be the “apple bobbing”  which with  green water full of spiders and skulls, you had to be a good sport to put your head in it. Well done to everyone that had a go – it’s amazing what the lure of a prize will do!

Jean-Pascal Wins the Challenge!

At Protective Packaging, we like to keep on our toes with the latest in the world of climatic packaging solutions.Foil Bags

To keep everyone’s knowledge finely tuned, our MD recently set a 50 question quiz covering everything from laminate structures to military standards, from chemical names to printing techniques – even a few anagrams were thrown in for good measure!

Of course we were all keen to brush up on our knowledge and to keep current, however the lure of a nice cash prize certainly bumped the entry numbers up!

Congratulations to our Customer Support’s Jean-Pascal who cleaned up with an impressive 40/50 scored. I hear he’s bought himself a few foil box bags with his winnings!

Derby Day Build Up!

The Manchester derby is fast approaching, and as always, the staff here at Protective Packaging Ltd are eagerly anticipating the game in order to get one over on their rivals. Being Manchester based, there is always a friendly banter around our building as the United and Citypellegrini-van-gaal-manchester-derby-united-city_3223226 fans prepare for the clash.

City fans have had some mixed results  and will be wanting to see the great form they had at the start of the season. Whilst United are currently third in the league and relying on lucky youngsters to keep their momentum going (Don’t worry Citizens, it won’t last long).

In the mean time we are keeping busy taking lots of orders for barrier foil bags and related consumable items, like shock watch and humidity indicators. If you are a current customer, why not take advantage of our speedy lead times with next day deliveries available on most orders, or if you have a new enquiry, don’t hesitate to call us as we have a wide variety of products that will meet your  barrier packaging requirements.

Whichever team you’re backing, good luck!  My prediction is as clear as our PPCC1 material: 4-1 to Man City with Kevin De Bruyne (foil) bagging the first goal!
