Contract Packing Solutions - Innovative Packing, Full Time Team 24/7, In House and Off Site

With time of the essence in the rapidly changing global market, the AKW Group offers dedicated contract packing solutions, which is ideal for clients with remedial or promotional production requirements. The contract packing arm operates out of AKW Global Warehousing and has three BRC accredited packing halls, a clean room and extensive bulk and high bay racking.

Our skilled and dedicated contract packing personnel are ready to cater for the exacting and precise demands of our blue-chip clients. We work rigidly to clients’ particular specifications and all types of contract packing solutions can be sourced. Services offered include gift sets, shelf ready packaging, shrink wrapping, collating, sleeving, rework, l-sealing, retail pallet displays and labelling.

We are contract packing specialists dealing with promotions and gift packs when clients need products repackaged for supermarket promotions at key selling times, such as a new product launch, Christmas or Easter. You just tell us the specifications and we will deliver the goods.

For fully automated high speed inline labelling, we can accommodate all shapes and sizes of products and can also source your printed labels. We can provide solutions for all applications whether for branding, RFID, promotional, instructional or bar coding.

Clean Room packing takes place under strict quality control procedures in our hepa-filtered, temperature controlled facility where we can offer packing facilities to the food and pharmaceutical industries.

L-sealing is performed via a photocell controlled fully automatic in-line machine with a smooth transfer belt and a heat tunnel attached with auto in-feed. We can L-seal a wide range of products to wrap one or multiple products in a flexible high gloss finish including logo embossed.

Our unique placement within AKW Global Warehousing allows us to offer an unrivalled service for bulk repalletisation and the assembly of large Retail Pallet Display supermarket promotions.

This is an expanding part of our business and neatly dovetails with the other operating arms of the Group, as it makes sound economic sense for manufacturers to deal with a business partner who can offer more than the single logistics solution. With distribution, warehousing and packing, we offer the whole package.
