Packaging Solutions - through evaluation, design and testing

Our package design capability
Our package design laboratory at Kettering has been awarded the International Safe Transit Association certification for package testing. The ISTA pre-shipment test procedure provides a means for manufacturers to significantly improve the assurance and safe arrival of their packaged products. We achieve this through the utilisation of tests simulating the shocks and stress normally encountered during handling and transportation.


Speciality polyethylene foam
Cellu-Cushion is an extremely versatile product with many different application possibilities. In addition to packaging, the foam is used in both the construction and leisure industries. Available in rolls of varying colours and thicknesses (2 to 15mm), Cellu-Cushion can be custom-made for your individual requirements.
