Pacepacker Services has rounded off a triumphant 18 months by scooping its sixth prestigious industry award for the company’s exporting and automation prowess. The Essexbased manufacturer of packing, pick and place and robot palletising equipment recently received the ‘Exporter of the Year’ accolade at the PPMA Group Industry Awards.

Pacepacker was up against five finalists who could also demonstrate significant export growth however it was Pacepacker’s unique ‘Try Before You Buy’ service – developed as part of the company’s export strategy to overcome customer concerns and de-risk the equipment procurement process – which put the automation specialist head and shoulders above the rest. Chris Buxton, Group CEO of the PPMA, comments: “Pacepacker was rewarded for energetically pursuing exports with a well-defined strategy and a ‘Try before You Buy’ facility, resulting in rapid and sustained export growth during difficult trading conditions.” In addition to this win Pacepacker was also highly commended in the Processing and Packaging Machinery Manufacturer of the Year category.

A relatively small company, employing 17 members of staff, Pacepacker has gained recognition over the last 18 months by demonstrating how it effectively used strategic advice from various experts, including the UKTI, the PPMA, and financial advice from Barclays Bank, to build upon its exporting capabilities during a tough economic time. This hard working strategic approach has not only increased Pacepacker’s exporting arm by 30% over the last three years but the company has now been rewarded for its efforts with six EEF, PPMA and Food Processing industry awards.
