Coming soon – a unique alternative to meet your packaging needs

Nine leading independent corrugated packaging firms are to join forces to give companies with multiple sites a ‘one-stop’ shop for all their packaging and logistical requirements.

The Corrboard Alliance® will create a network of independent specialists to make it easier for firms in the UK and Ireland to access a vast range of high-quality packaging easily and cost-effectively.

If you need Correx in Canterbury, die cuts in Dublin and tubes in Tadcaster (or all three products at all three locations), the Alliance will offer a direct and co-ordinated service.

Dealing with just your closest Alliance member you will have access to the full range of products, print finishes and services the group has to offer.

This is the first such formal alliance in the UK corrugated industry and has developed from a partnership of joint investors in a new sheet feeder – CorrBoard based in Scunthorpe.

The legal structure of the Alliance and the full range of product offerings are being finalised with a view to launching the service on May 1st 2016.

The Corrboard Alliance® was the brainchild of Tim Gray, owner of Dairi-Pak Ltd and proud Alliance member. He said:  “We are creating a pioneering service which gives firms with sites dotted around the country an independent alternative to dealing with the large integrated groups when planning their packaging needs. It’s a thrill to be heading up such a ground-breaking initiative which aims to solve many large companies’ logistical headaches.”.
