Protective Packaging Ltd has relocated to a brand new, bespoke facility custom-made for all its specific manufacturing requirements.
Having tailor-made production areas, warehousing, offices and meeting rooms all the way through to bespoke engineers’ workshop and quality inspection laboratory has made our facility first and foremost a great place to work but also provided the ability to increase our efficiencies and overall manufacturing capacity.
This new site is located at Carrington Gateway, Unit 3, 1 Opus Close, Carrington, Manchester, M31 4RQ. It is a total size of 36,650 ft² (9,000 ft² larger than our previous location) and is situated on a new business park which opened in 2021.
Protective Packaging Ltd successfully completed the move on 31st August 2021 with all the manufacturing machinery and supporting offices fully operational from day one. This transition was meticulously managed to ensure there was a complete continuity of supply to our customers throughout the process.
The relocation process required excessive planning for the movement of our manufacturing machines from start to finish. This was all strategically planned with a day by day schedule, managed by our planning team to ensure everything was in place for the opening date of 31st August 2021.
Relating to the relocation, Protective Packaging are preparing towards gaining accreditation to ISO 14001 (the Environmental Body) in the coming months. Our new units are also more energy efficient, powered by only renewable energy as part of our wider commitment to becoming Carbon Negative in the years to come. The car parking spots are equipped with electric car charging ports available for any members of staff, which will encourage individuals to go green and eventually head towards electric vehicles.
In summary, the relocation move will support our plans for growth, offering increased manufacturing capacity while protecting our core values; quality assurance, industry leading lead times and unrivalled customer service.
