Ecorrugated marks first birthday with £1m investment

Ecorrugated, the joint venture between UK corrugated board firms Sheet Direct and The Boxshop, has announced that it is marking its first birthday with a million pound investment to double capacity at its Ellesmere Port site

The business was founded by directors Andrew Carver and Paul Lavelle in October 2011. The firm said it will be investing in an EMBA 170 QSTM casemaker.

In a statement, the firm said that “it has proven the success of the ‘Packaging Park’ model, establishing itself 200 metres from the Prowell sheet feeder”.

The firm said that this has allowed Ecorrugated to minimise transport costs as well as its carbon footprint.

Director Andrew Carver said: “The response from the market has been even better than we expected and we’re moving to the next phase of our growth plan quicker than anticipated.

“Our aim is to become the UK’s largest small box manufacturer and this investment will put us firmly on that path, as we aim to more than triple turnover by 2014.

“This new investment will double capacity by adding a second high speed production line, enabling us to continue to service the trade sector with a 48-96 hour lead-time.”
