CorrBoard UK Alliance Launches a Packaging Revolution

A unique partnership between nine independent manufacturers, launched today, aims to help businesses throughout the UK and Ireland streamline how their packaging is sourced, stored and supplied.

The CorrBoard UK Alliance® offers three unique benefits to any company facing the twin challenges of complex, ever-evolving packaging requirements and the need to deliver to multiple sites:

  • An unrivalled range of corrugated and other packaging products, designs and finishes from established independent companies
  • Access to the whole network via a single dedicated contact at the nearest Alliance member company, guaranteeing a responsive service at a senior management level
  • Locations nationwide providing storage and delivery options throughout the UK and Ireland.

Tim GrayThis 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 companies involved are Beaucrest, Challenge Packaging, Dairi-Pak, Fencor Group, Garthwest, GWP Group, McLaren Packaging and Swanline Print, as well as CorrBoard itself.

Tim Gray, owner of Shropshire-based Dairi-Pak Ltd and co-founder of the Alliance, said: “We are confident that many companies will see this as an opportunity to simplify their packaging logistics whilst reaping the benefits of dealing with a collective of well-established, privately-owned businesses.

“We believe we have created a model which gives purchasers unrivalled product choice and an inherently flexible, responsive service.

Colin Prior“It is no exaggeration to say this is a game-changer in the sector, which is why we are confidently inviting firms to ‘Join the packaging revolution’.”

Colin Prior, joint owner of Challenge, based in East Sussex, said: “Challenge are proud to be part of this exciting alliance of market-leading companies, which will bring our shared core values of independence, choice and agile customer service to the CorrBoard UK Alliance. This service will give purchasers involved in complex, multi-site contracts a new robust supply alternative in the UK and Ireland.”
