Smithpack Manufacturing

CORRUGATED Conversion

Smithpack’s manufacturing base is a 42,000 sq ft modern facility in Kingswinford in the West Midlands.

Comprehensive Corrugated conversion facilities include a LMC computerised fully automatic flexo-folder gluing 3m case maker, a 3.6m Printer Slotter and a Bobst automatic die-cutter. An array of other equipment include semi-automatic gluers, stitchers and smaller box making machinery.

Board Supply

Smithpack are a convertor of Corrugated board into corrugated packaging.

Corrugated supplies come from major UK board “Sheet Feeders” that each run several Corrugators producing board 24 hours a day.  Sourcing material from multiple dedicated “Sheet Feeder” plants in this way enables Smithpack to reliably offer the widest range of board grade, paper, flute combinations to customers using the most efficient supply chain model for customers’ requirements.

Workforce

Smithpack benefit from a wealth of packaging industry experience and a commited workforce, many of whom have long service contributions to the company of over 20 years.

One past retiree actually boasted 50 years continous service – but that would have to be considered rather exceptional in today’s world!

Investment

Smithpack are commited to continued investment in UK manufacturing facilities in pursuit of efficiency and quality continuous improvement goals.

The company seeks to maximise the environmental benefits of Corrugated as a packaging material by sourcing, designing, converting and supplying in the most environmentally effective way.

In 2016 Smithpack took delivery of a new Latitude computerised quick set medium/large format Casemaker; a substantial investment into the high quality manufacturing future of Smithpack in the West Midlands to best serve UK industry’s corrugated packaging requirements.
