Advantages of using a Co-Packing Service
- Cost Effective
Packaging your own products can be very expensive. There’s the capital outlay on expensive specialised equipment to start with. Then there are the additional staff costs in what can be a very labour intensive process. Money is tight: using a co-packing partner means that you can avoid having to pay up-front for these additional costs, and instead “pay as you go” and let the experts take the strain.
Designing and manufacturing your own packaging can be a drain, both creatively and financially. Hiring a co-packing service enables you to concentrate on what you do best – creating great products. You can then use our industry expertise to create the packaging and merchandising to do your ideas justice.
- Save on Storage Costs
Using a co-packing service means that you can manufacture and transport your product in bulk. This makes the entire logistical process easier – you won’t need an expensive warehouse to store your product while awaiting itemisation, nor store boxes, containers and palletsof the finished items on site while awaiting onward delivery.
- Test Marketing
Using a service such as Co-Packers UK enables you to test the market with fresh designs, so it can be great for trialling new products. And with minimum production runs as low as 1500 units, you can organise a localised low cost campaign to test your new idea on your target market.
A co-packing service is ideal for producing promotional or limited editions of your product or even for making one-off versions for special events.
Why Choose Co-Packers UK?
We’ve been around for a while, so we know that choosing a co-packing partner can be difficult. Here are a few reasons why Co-Packers UK could be the best choice for you.
Co-Packers UK is based in Witham, just off the A12 in the heart of Essex. Our purpose built spacious warehouse is situated within a few hundred yards of the major trunk road connecting London, the M25 and the East of England. Our location close to the main national road links is ideal for our national operation. We are an especially practical choice for clients based in London, the Home Counties and East Anglia.
The contract packing industry is a rapidly changing world. Larger co-packing organisations are focused on driving volume with big brands. At Co-Packers UK, our mission is to provide the expertise, resources and professionalism to help small to medium sized businesses achieve the same effect. Our flexibility and responsiveness enables us (and you) to produce the most suitable packaging for your product. What’s more, because we can do this with such limited volumes, this can make us ideal for special events, niche products and test marketing.
We can offer a range of services from just simply packing the product to providing support and advice for your packaging design; from helping you choose the right material to deciding on your marketing campaign. And with our professional experience and up to the minute equipment, we are confident that we will be able to implement all your packing requirements.
