Around the busiest time of year – Christmas, we had a local logistics giant knocking on our door with an exciting project for us! Their idea was to create a Christmas hamper that commemorated the company’s one hundredth anniversary, as well as intended to reward their customers for their loyalty and celebrate their home town Hull being City of Culture 2017.
Hull’s Amy Johnson Festival was cultural celebration of the life and achievements of Amy Johnson, CBE, the record-breaking Hull-born aviator and first woman to fly solo from the UK to Australia in 1930.
Shelf ready packaging (SRP) is one of Garthwest’s specialities and for this particular project we were able to provide a high level of consultancy based on our years of expertise within the industry. We worked with a vegetable supplier who were supplying produce to a leading UK supermarket chain, but this would be their first time using SRP.
Garthwest has acted as a manufacturer, distributor and occasional co-packer for several large distributors of films. One of our large customers was looking to reduce their cost significantly per unit for a DVD FSDU (Free Standing Display Unit). Consequently, we were asked to suggest design changes for the company’s fastest running unit so that they could reduce their material cost.
