Our History

Garthwest is a leading independent corrugated cardboard packaging manufacturer in the UK. In 1964, James Robert West and Elizabeth Cameron West started Garthwest in Hull, East Yorkshire. Today, Lindsay, Raffan and Angus West run Garthwest, which has continued to succeed as a family-run business for the last 60 years. 

Garthwest’s humble beginnings started with a corrugated box supply to a local fishing industry. James West was an innovator, an out-of-the-box thinker, who strived for Garthwest to become one of UK’s leading independent corrugated packaging manufacturers. 

Driven by industry demands and team ambitions and expertise, we expanded our services to include Garthwest Creative. This created an expert team passionate about packaging design, print and POS displays, helping clients of all sizes to enhance brand visibility and achieve their business goals. 

What We Are Today

To this day, we create and deliver custom-made outstanding packaging, POS and print solutions. We work with brands from the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) industry, fresh produce and pharmaceuticals and have created long-term relationships built on respect, value and trust. 

From standard cardboard boxes and shelf-ready packaging (SRP) to point of sale displays (POS) to and promotional print, our team are well versed in innovative solutions. We are powered by creativity and flexibility in the innovation process, helping us to accelerate a bespoke product range for SMEs and larger enterprises worldwide.
