For more than a century it has been a significant packaging format with ever evolving solutions that meet the changing needs of suppliers and customers alike.

From strawberry punnets to bulk chilled seafood packs; from shelf ready display shipper to merchandising stand, the humble corrugated box has evolved stretching the imaginations of artists and engineers alike.


It is through that constant evolution of corrugated solutions that greater efficiencies can be achieved not only in terms of packaging costs but also time, energy, cooling, ripening and recycleability.

  • The corrugating process with it’s opportunities to create different board structures.
  • The various conversion equipment available and style options of packaging produced.
  • Different printing processes and substrate requirements to deliver the right market presence.
