History

Established 1964

Garthwest Ltd is one of the UK’s largest independent corrugated packaging manufacturers based in Hull, East Yorkshire. We are founded in 1964 by James Robert West, and Garthwest is now a second generation family business, where the West family still remains at the heart of the business.

Initially, James created his first corrugated cardboard box to supply packaging for the local fishing industry. Due to the West family  innovative outlook and hard work our company grown to become one of the leading UK’s independent corrugated packaging manufacturers.

Spread on 200,000 square feet of production and warehousing space, we specialise in case-making, die cutting, cardboard printing, multi point gluing as well as manufacturing solid board alternatives.

In 1983 we founded a Point of Sale division, which makes us one of the longest established in-store marketing materials manufacturers and designers within the UK. In accordance with the family’s ambitions to develop the business and in response to the consistently increasing demand for innovative, cost-efficient and eye-catching packaging, and  well designed in-store marketing campaigns, in 2006 we established a new division-Garthwest Creative. The Creative studio specialises in packaging design,creative print, brand and product design, in-store sales and marketing materials such as Free Standing Display Units (FSDU), Counter Display Units (CDU), standees, dump bins, and promotional print products.

 

During the years, Garthwest worked with brands from the Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) industry such as Tesco, Aldi, Moy Park, Cranswick, Smith & Nephew, Faccenda Group Ltd and Dailycer. The Creative division of our company designed Shelf Ready Packaging (SRP), Point of Purchase (POP) display units and promotional print for brands such as M&S, Disney, Walkers Books UK, Locktite and Google , gaining our great expertise in this field.

Through innovative design and flexible manufacturing, we built a unique and innovative portfolio of vast product range – from transit cases and retail ready packaging to in-store marketing materials, whilst offering first class service to either SME’s or LSE’s across the UK.
