Sourced through Scoop.it from: www.packagingnews.co.uk
Following on from steady growth in the last few years, Macfarlane Packaging is expanding its capabilities in the South West of England.
Macfarlane Packaging are a well known distributor of both standard and bespoke, specialist packaging products. Their range is vast an includes the likes of heat sealers and consumables like Tip N Tell and Shockwatch Labels.
In addition they manufacture and source a huge range of customer specific items. They cater for a wide variety of projects, having seen increased demand for specialist products like FIBC bags and highly technical military packaging that conforms to vigorous standards like the US MIL PRF 131 K & UK DEF STAN 81-147 (formerly DEF STAN 81-75).
They currently have major warehouse expansions planned in both Plymouth & Avonmouth in Bristol. This combined with Mcfarlane’s commitment to maintain the presence of their central Patchway facility means their total business capacity has more or less doubled in size.
Macfarlane say this expansion will mean customers in local areas will be able to access a range that is second to non.
The Patchway facility is currently their biggest site by overall size and capacity. The huge warehouse here has even been offering customers the opportunity to store palletised goods in the short term, giving them piece of mind through the Brexit process.
The new expansion focuses on just the South West for now but more regional developments are planned into the future.
Phil Rees the Regional Director for Macfarlane Packaging said the expansion came as a direct result of their efforts to go further and deliver industry leading customer service.
They also want to focus of reducing their clients overall costs whilst maintaining quality and reliability.
Interestingly he also went on to comment that the demand for short term storage solutions had grown steadily over the last 2 – 3 years.
Food for thought as we near the 3 year anniversary of the Brexit referendum.
