The Weedon Group Partners with Plastikcity to Provide a Complete Corrugated Packaging Solution for the Plastics Industry

The Weedon Group has become a partner in Plastikcity, providing easy online access for the plastics industry to the Weedon Group’s expertise in the design and manufacture of corrugated industrial packaging.

A family-run, independent group of businesses, the Weedon Group includes three complimentary companies:

  • Weedon PSC (based in Hednesford, Staffs), the country’s leading independent manufacturer of Retail Ready Packaging and Point of Sale displays
  • Weedon Corrugated Products (based in Audenshaw, Manchester), the largest independent corrugated manufacturer in the North West and
  • i2i europe (based in Hednesford, Staffs), a creative and packaging design agency with expertise in structural design and packaging reduction.

Together these three companies offer a complete corrugated packaging solution for all stages from concept to distribution. They serve a wide range of industries, including plastics, automotive components, chemicals, paper and packaging and logistics/fulfilment.

The Group’s industrial packaging range includes:

  • Industrial transit packaging
  • Pallet boxes
  • XXL export boxes

The range of pallet boxes offers a heavy-duty corrugated packaging solution for the transportation of bulk products or for long-term storage, and is designed to keep products safe throughout the supply chain. Compared with wooden alternatives, corrugated boxes offer significant benefits in terms of cost, ease of use and environmental protection.

The Weedon Group specialises in cost reduction through techniques such as right-sizing and the use of different technical board grades. A choice of box styles and board grades is therefore available to suit specific needs and to avoid expensive over-packaging. With its in-house structural design team, the Weedon Group is able to offer innovative solutions, and its testing lab ensures that its packaging is always fit for purpose. The company has also developed a range of coatings that can be applied to corrugated board for specialist uses such as anti-static or water protection.

John Weedon, Managing Director of the Weedon Group, comments:

“Packaging requirements are becoming ever more complex but, by combining the expertise in our three companies, along with state-of-the-art equipment and many years’ experience, we can offer solutions that our customers may not have considered.”
