Corrugated Packaging

Corrugated - Did you know...

  • Corrugated cardboard has a recycling rate of 84% in the UK.
    This is the highest recycling rate of any type of packaging in the country.

  • As a direct result, every four months, an area the size of Greater London is saved from landfill.

  • On average, corrugated boxes manufactured in the UK are made from 76% recycled fibre.

  • The recycling loop is so efficient that an old box can be recycled, remade and reused in just two weeks.

  • Corrugated packaging solves four hundred thousand packaging problems every year. It is 35 per cent more cost effective than ten years ago and 20 per cent lighter with no reduction in its structural properties. It is also the most versatile packaging. It can be printed or plain, and have a smooth white outer surface for high quality graphic images with a brown inside for improved economies.

  • Manufacturers produce about 60,000 different print styles every month, offering customers maximum scope for creative marketing.

  • Corrugated has a remarkable capacity for inspiring precision-engineered, custom-built constructions that maximise product protection during transit, storage and point-of-sale. No other packaging gets new products to market faster. Advanced design technology enables customised packaging to be developed and delivered in days, minimising both costs and time.

  • Corrugated packaging is also the most space efficient form of transportation packaging and is easily packed flat before and after use. A typical corrugated packaging box with a packed volume of 63,000 cubic centimetres will fold flat to about 8,000 cubic centimetres - making a space saving of over 85 per cent.
