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.
