Kite wins ‘Supply Chain Solution of the Year’ at UK Packaging Awards

Kite Packaging have been crowned winners of the UK Packaging Awards ‘Supply Chain Solution of the Year’ category.

The employee-owned packaging business has 7 sites located across the UK with a team of dedicated in-house specialists in the fields of load retention, in-the-box, packaging technologists and aerospace and automotive packaging design engineers.

Kite’s packaging specialists are supported by best-in-class technology, systems, design capability and their Mobile Testing facility Unit – home to some of the industry’s leading technology and testing equipment.

This was the first year the employee-owned business entered the prestigious UK Packaging Awards. Entering 5 submissions, 4 of which were shortlisted, was a great achievement. The announcement that Kite are winners in the supply chain solution of the year category, was a fantastic success for the whole team.

The winning solution was a complete packaging re-design for a leading manufacturer of cookers, kitchen appliances and interior furnishings. The client approached Kite as their existing packaging did not sit correct with their philosophy, was taking too long to pack and was not actually doing the job it was meant to – protecting their items.

The packaging technologists worked together with the in-house specialist divisions and came up with a packaging solution that not only gave them a re-usable, highly protective solution, but achieved the following great results – reduced packaging weight, damages, plastic content, cost, packing time and packing space.
