Our Mobile Test Facility

Established in 2001 as a true employee-owned company and with the original management team still at the forefront of the business, we have seen continuous growth in our 18 years as a business.

Recognition for our Kite team comes after a very successful year for us, as we have invested in further geographical expansion by extending our network of regional distribution centres to include the North East of England.

2018 also saw the launch of our ‘Mobile Testing Facility’, the first of its kind in the industry, allowing our packaging technologists to bring solutions and expertise directly to customers own sites. At the start of 2019 we launched a company-wide initiative to reduce ours and our customers' use of plastics by 120 tonnes following “The four R’s” of reduce, re-use, recycle and replace – a goal we have achieved within the first 6 months of 2019.

Our Ecommerce, Waste Compliance and Midlands Regional Distribution Centre all operate out of the Torrington Avenue site in Coventry with a further 6 Regional Distribution Centres located throughout the UK.
