Packaging firm sees £1m investment
13 June 2022
BULK PACKAGING specialist Fenton Packaging has relocated to a 65,000 sq ft site in Leeds and rebranded as Fenton Packaging Solutions.
The company has invested over £1 million in the past year to streamline its operations, put a new fleet on the road, and prepare for its next stage of growth, bringing more innovative, sustainable packaging solutions to the market.
“Leeds has a thriving business community and is the perfect location for our business as a third of our clients are currently in the North of England,” says Fenton Packaging Solutions managing director Bob Clarke. “We have effectively put everything under one roof at Kinetic 45 in East Leeds, but we are maintaining our distribution depots in Hemel Hempstead and Bristol to ensure national distribution.”
Purchasing and operations director David Wilson adds: “To coincide with the move, we’ve taken the opportunity to refresh our brand. Repositioning as Fenton Packaging Solutions better matches our style of operation and future plans, while the new logo and colour scheme reflects our sustainability credentials and goals. We are not just a packaging supplier, but a solutions provider for our diverse range of customers. While we stock many well-established and popular ranges, we offer a consultative approach and, through innovation, help to steer our customers towards using the most sustainable packaging options for their businesses.
“As leaders in innovation in our sector, we constantly encourage our dozens of manufacturing partners to develop new and better packaging solutions. We listen to our customers and ensure that their current and future needs are met through innovation and continuous product development. Our top 20 suppliers in the UK and overseas produce around 80% of our product ranges, and we work closely with them, reviewing existing and new product development three times a year.”
