Kite’s Rotherham branch is the most northerly located branch in the UK. It covers a vast area meeting the Coventry branch at Nottingham, reaching as far as the Scottish borders in the North and spanning the whole of Northern England, from the east to west coast. The branch’s portfolio of customers range from retail to industrial and cover a full range of products including medical, electrical, food produce, clothing and toys. It specialises in offering packaging solutions whilst providing a level of service that is second to none.

Kite Packaging North has grown from strength to strength over the past few years, recently moving premises from Sheffield to a new site in Rotherham; the £1.5 million investment has seen expansion from 20,000 to 30,000 sq. ft. The site includes a fully enclosed yard and further room for stock holding to improve service and delivery for its customers.

The site is overseen by Chris O’Reilly, Managing Partner and has a 22 strong team of employee partners who, because of Kite’s employee-owned philosophy, have a great interest in the service values offered to all of their branch customers. Performance and quality are of major importance to this site and all Kite branches throughout the country.

Rotherham has expertise in all forms of packaging and work together as a team to ensure that its customers receive the very best advice and solutions for their products, and benefit from the vast experience of Andy Johnson, Rotherham’s very own Packaging Technologist.

Kite Packaging Rotherham - Case Study

Kite Packaging North approached an industrial manufacturer in the North West, turning over £50m in the UK, with worldwide customers, and immediately spotted opportunities to reduce their packaging costs and increase their customers’ satisfaction.

Kite transformed the businesses packaging which consisted of over 80 different sizes, each held in stock on site, which provided poor protection and branding, and were slowing down the packing operation. Kite’s solution included reducing the number of packs from 80 to 4, reducing stock holding by 90%, providing consistent brand definition and vastly improved packing time.
