Kite Packaging Opens New South East Office

The UK packaging company expands its South East operation with new Maidstone branch

Kite Packaging, the premier supplier of packaging in the UK, announced today the expansion of its South East operation – with the addition of a brand new site based in Maidstone. The new site has been planned to allow for further growth in the South East region, where Kite already operates out of a site at Harlow, and will support existing and new customers. Covering the coast of Kent and East Sussex right through to Surrey and South East London, the new branch will focus on the diverse industrial and food production sectors and be fully supported by the expertise and innovation of one of the UK’s largest specialist packaging companies.

The expansion has been planned as part of Kite’s ongoing strategy to create opportunities in geographical regions that are pre-dominantly serviced by small packaging businesses with a limited capability. The Maidstone branch is looking to become the leading packaging distributor in the area, offering the capabilities and level of service that so far has not been seen from a single source supplier in the region.

Kite has a strong focus on value added services that improve the overall business operation, by offering stock products, bespoke designs and innovative systems solutions, combined with delivery capabilities such as Just in Time and Direct to Line feed, so that companies can use one packaging supplier for all their varying needs. Coupled with this, Kite also offers its own compliance scheme for the Packaging Regulations which will provide a further value added service for its customers in the South East.

A spokesman from Kite Packaging commented, “The investment in the Maidstone area has been a long-term plan of Kite Packaging’s for some time and we are delighted to now be opening the doors and welcoming local businesses who require specialist packaging advice and design solutions. Our presence in the South East is already large, and the new branch will improve services in this area – enabling local customers to benefit from Kite’s expertise, service and strategic approach to packaging.”

The new team in Maidstone will work closely with the Harlow branch ensuring consistency and a high service level to customers in the South East. To find out more please visit
