ESS Packaging have it all Covered!

We're pleased to announce our latest sporting sponsorship program at Stone SP Cricket Club.


In continuation of our valued support of local sports clubs, Graham Lunn, Managing Director of ESS Packaging, has unveiled the latest sponsorship program of the ESS Packaging pitch covers at Stone SP Cricket Club with the club’s President, Russ Flower.


With over 100 boys & girls attending "Friday Night is Cricket Night" at Stone SP Cricket Club every week during the season, the new ESS Packaging covers will help to protect the pitches when the British summer weather isn't favourable and help to ensure the ground is ready for the very large number of local children who turn up week in week out.


ESS Packaging are extremely proud to have long supported local sports clubs with good junior links and commitment to junior sporting development and are always on the lookout for further sponsorship ideas.

Stafford packaging specialist launches ‘bespoke boxes’ service

ESS Packaging, which is based on Hixon Industrial Estate just outside Stafford, has launched a new die-cutting service which will allow businesses to order ‘made to measure’ packaging for their products.

with the new die cutting machine.


The company, whose client base ranges from local small businesses and individual e-bay sellers through to multinational bluechip companies, has invested in a new die-cutting machine which will allow it to extend its ‘no job too small – or too big’ offering to make bespoke boxes to client specification; offering real choice in terms of size and materials used. Owner of the family-run firm, Graham Lunn, says:


We’re really excited about launching this new service – it will open up the potential of having professionally produced, bespoke packaging to companies that wouldn’t usually be able to afford it due to minimum order levels. We literally have no minimum order, so if you’re looking to have two – or two-thousand – boxes produced to your own specification, we are here to help. In terms of branding, we can work with designs provided by your graphic designer or can add labels to completed boxes to provide a professional, uniform finish that will help your product stand out from the crowd.


With the machine capable of handling sheet sizes of up to 900 x 1000mm, boxes can be made to house both small and large items.


This new service adds to the ESS ‘stable’ that includes the sale of packaging and office supplies with a range of flexible delivery or pick-up options and the provision of contract packing and light assembly services. So, if you’ve got several hundred items to be packaged ready for sale but lack the time to do it, the ESS Packaging team can take the strain – from cutting and assembling the boxes to packaging and labelling them ready for point of sale or for delivery by post or courier.


To discuss how ESS packaging could help your company present its products in beautifully made bespoke boxes, call Graham on 01889 272 784. To browse the company’s full range of products and find out more about its contract packing and assembly services, visit www.ess-packaging.co.uk.




ESS Packaging launches online shop – and convenient ‘delivery or collect’ service

Staffordshire-based packaging specialist, ESS Packaging, has launched a new e-commerce website to sell its full range of packaging supplies. Customers can now order a diverse range of packaging materials including pallets, cardboard boxes and cartons, plastic boxes, polythene bags, protective materials such as bubble wrap, paper, card, plastic trays, sealing materials and office supplies from a convenient ‘one stop’ online shop.

company’s new online shop

In addition to taking advantage of competitive pricing, purchasers also benefit from the option to have orders delivered – with free delivery on orders over £100 – or electing to collect the goods themselves from the company’s base at Hixon, near Stafford. This affords customers greater choice and convenience as Graham Lunn, owner of the family run business, explains:

Offering an online shop was the natural next step for our business; we’ve got a strong, loyal customer base who appreciate our flexible, friendly approach and efficient service so adding the convenience of the option to buy online should make dealing with us even easier. We also offer the option for customers to have their items delivered or to pick them up from us at a time to suit – it’s especially popular with those who are placing ‘last minute’ orders and really need to get goods packed and out of the door quickly.

Companies based in and around Staffordshire who are looking to reduce their carbon footprint will also be interested in our services – they can buy conveniently online and rest assured that their goods will only be travelling 20 or 30 miles, rather than hundreds, to reach them.

In addition to selling a varied range of packaging supplies for business and home use – the company offers ‘house move’ packs, including cartons, bubble-wrap and tape to help take the strain out of moving day – ESS Packaging provides contract packing and light assembly services, counting numerous blue chip companies and well-known High Street names among its client base. Its flexible approach and commitment to problem solving means the company regularly ‘goes the extra mile’ to help clients. From fast turn-around delivery to providing packing, assembly and storage solutions; no job is to small – or too big.  

To help celebrate the launch of its new website, ESS Packaging is offering 30% off all cartons and boxes ordered online until 31st June 2011.
