By Jake Kirk • Tuesday 20th March 2018

Kite Packaging, the UK’s premier packaging supplier, has launched a brand new range of Shredding Machines.

Employee-owned business, Kite Packaging, has brought its new cardboard recycling shredders to market – offering an environmentally friendly alternative for businesses using packaging void fill products.

As an alternative to purchasing traditional void fill products, companies can now use Kite’s innovative Shredding Machines to turn their waste cardboard into useful packaging material for protection and void fill purposes.

As a leading Packaging Supplier, Kite understands the need to package products safely and securely, ensuring that products arrive at their destination in the exact same condition in which they were despatched.

This new product range can be used in any warehouse, packing and despatch department to improve efficiency and make better use of valuable operational space by eliminating the need for continuous purchasing and storage of traditional void fill products.

The machines enable the efficient slicing of surplus cardboard into thin strips, establishing a cost-free, recycled material for filling void space within parcels and one that can also be used in shipping containers for extra protection of their contents.

Any business striving for the ultimate eco-friendly workplace should consider adding one of Kite’s Shredding Machines to the mix.
