New projects

We will soon be approaching the half way point of the year here at Protective Packaging ltd. As the production manager I have seen continuous growth in the business, no more so than on our hand fabricated side of the company.

The year so far has seen plenty of new customers and new designs of our foil bags. This has involved all shapes and sizes of our foil pouches being fabricated to accommodate our customer’s needs. Here at PPL we relish the challenge of taking on new projects with the end result being a new liner which is used for all types of applications in many industry sectors.

With many new projects in the pipe line including some new style Mylar bags©, I am sure the second half of the year is going to be just as exciting. I look forward to being involved in even more exciting projects for our Barrier foil packaging.

Our customers make our business great

Here at Protective Packaging we pride ourselves in delivering superb customer service.

We understand that it is our relationships with our customers that makes our business great and understanding their business helps us satisfy their packaging needs. Our customer support team is constantly evolving and progressing so that we may improve on the already high standards we have set ourselves.

With this in mind we have recently recruited a new member of staff to help bolster our already experienced customer support team.

We are pleased to welcome our new customer support team member Joanna Laverty. Joanna is already in full swing helping our customers with the enquiries for aluminium foil bags, desiccants and other packaging enquiries.

Joanna has already settled in quickly and has started to build relationships with many of our customers.

Powder & Bulk Solids, Conference & Exhibition

As part of our relationship with 3D Barrier bags based in Orlando, Florida. We recently exhibited for them at the Powder & Bulk Solids Exhibition in Rosemont, Chicago.

The exhibition was attended by companies from a wide variety of industries. Including Pharmaceutical, food, Polymer, F.I.B.C manufacturers, general plastics, chemicals and flavourings. The list is endless. Our stand attracted a lot of attention because our range of products are applicable to all these industries. Our climatic packaging solutions protect against UV light, Oxygen ingress, odour, moisture vapour and temperature extremes. Therefore we become very relevant to a broad range of industries and applications.

We were there to exhibit our range of converted barrier foils. Products we showcased were Mylar bags, F.I.B.C liners, Gaylord box liners, round bottom drum liners, 25KG sacks, Octabin liners and Heat sealers.

It was a busy 3 days and we hope that we have generated plenty of good business for our colleagues.
