Boxes and Packaging (Manchester) has successfully relocated to new premises, just around the corner from its Bredbury site which they had occupied for 25 years.
The new 4,040 sqm production facility, which is also home to the administration team, is located on Corrie Way and has been acquired as the business outgrew its Southside site. The move has allowed the reconfiguring of the layout of the production lines to maximise output efficiencies, with all existing machinery being transferred to the new facility. Additional machinery acquisitions are currently underway to enable manufacturing capacity to grow further in the future, including the addition of a second printer slotter at the end of the year, and a flatbed die-cutter, both of which will create the capacity for growth.
Stuart Clarke, Managing Director, Boxes and Packaging (Manchester), commented, “This is the beginning of a new chapter in the history of Boxes and Packaging (Manchester) and we are thrilled as to how smoothly the changeover has gone. It’s been an amazing team effort and it’s great to see the site being fully operational.”
The Manchester site has customers across the North west and North Midlands. It’s satellite site in Bolton remains unaffected by the move.Stacey Austin, Regional Managing Director, added, “It is pleasing to see the acquisition of Corrie Way come to fruition after months of hard work behind the scenes. This strategic move will allow the Manchester team to continue to grow their customer portfolio, drive greater production efficiencies, and be in a strong position for future expansion into new markets and to offer additional capabilities.”
