Secondary Packaging

Whether you need to re-pack products due to changes in legislation or to meet specific marketing requirements, we can provide you with quick, cost-effective and creative solutions

We work extensively with manufacturers and the retail sector to break down and re-package products into different presentations. Re-worked products are then often incorporated into a wide variety of presentation units including pre-stocked merchandising units and free standing display units prepared ready for delivery direct to major retailers. Secondary re-packing requirements can also arise due to legislative and regulatory changes and the demands of international markets.
Our versatile manual and automated pharmaceutical packaging systems enable us to provide customers with cost-effective secondary packing solutions to meet their specific product and market requirements. With over 40 years’ experience we are confident that our customers’ businesses benefit from the breadth of experience we have gained across a wide range of products and markets.
