Case Study - Bostik

The client

Bostik are a world-class provider of sealing and bonding technologies. Operating in over 50 countries, their wide-ranging offering covers markets such as construction, packaging, automotive, high tech, hygiene and more.


The challenge

Following an unforeseen boom in demand, Bostik were struggling to cope with the large amount of urgent repacking work that was required, and couldn’t find a packaging/repacking provider who could meet their repacking requirements on short notice.

Bostik were under a great deal of customer pressure and had deadlines rapidly approaching. That’s where ESS Packaging stepped in!


How did ESS help?

We quickly got to work, creating space in our modern warehouse, rapidly sourcing additional labour and implementing new working shift patterns in order to accommodate Bostik’s needs. 

Following this, we drew up a detailed plan of exactly how we would repack their products, what timescale the work would be completed on, and what needed to be reported.

We ensured that Bostik’s account was carefully managed, and that they were kept in the loop at all times.

For Bostik, we:

  • Repack products into FSDUs and counter display units
  • Provide protective packaging
  • Help to ensure brand conformity across their packaging

The rest, as they say, is history. We’ve been Bostik’s chosen repacking partner for years, and continue to prove that our process works, and it works well!


Why ESS?

Bostik choose to partner with ESS Packaging because of our incredibly agile workflow.

We are able to:

  • Offer ample space for Bostik products/packaging
  • Prove our reliability through our excellent track record of hitting deadlines
  • Build strong relationships with the Bostik team, allocating a dedicated account manager in order to keep all repacking smooth & faultless
  • Work together as a team to achieve all promised and future targets


Our team at ESS work hard every day to ensure that our clients receive a top-quality service at a reasonable price. Bostik continue to partner with us because we never let them down. 


The results

Initially, we helped Bostik to clear their backlog. Now we help them to proactively ensure there’s never a backlog again.
