Welcome to the Automated Packaging Systems blog!

Peter WhylieAs I write this, the UK economy is looking pretty rosy, boasting the leading growth forecast for the EU, and the Automated Packaging Systems order books are full, giving us some really positive challenges at the start of a new year.

But it’s not just any new year – 2014 will mark the 30th anniversary of the establishment of our company’s UK manufacturing facility. From its lowly days as a very small unit in the Herefordshire market town of Ledbury, Automated Packaging Systems UK has evolved into the purpose-built 200,000 sq ft European headquarters, which is now located in Malvern, Worcestershire.

From the UK, we now supply our catalogue of packaging consumables throughout the whole of Europe, through sales and service centres based in Germany, France and Belgium.

This year our plans include a number of exciting developments across our range of products. These will include the introduction of new accessories and material offerings for AirPouch void fill and FastWrap protective packaging, further advances into the Autobag mail order fulfilment sector, and some breakthroughs into the food packaging market, through our SidePouch and stand-up pouch offerings.

Our aspirations are to grow our business at a rate similar to 2013 and with even greater support for our customer base. In our production facilities, the focus will be on scrap reduction, continuous improvement, and meeting customer expectations. In short, a continuation of what we have aimed to achieve over the past 30 years.
