What is packaging?
In its broadest sense, packaging is the process of enclosing products in preparation for distribution or sale. The aim is to protect products from tampering and also preserve them during storage. The material used to enclose the product varies depending on the type of product. Hoxton offers its clients a wide range of packaging solutions for different types of products. At Hoxton, there are a variety of packaging services based on customer requirements and professional judgment.
The method of packaging used depends on the type of product and the duration of storage. Even so, the client is at liberty to request a specific packaging service. The services offered include;
In skin packing, we enclose the product using material made from plastic, specifically polymer. Heat is applied to the cover which in turn shrinks tightly over the product. Skin packing is also used in over-wrapping other types of packaging such as boxes. Skin packing is flexible in that it applies to both large and small products, as well as odd-shaped products.
Heat sealing applies to an assembly process that brings together thermoplastics. Our team of qualified contractors provides heat sealing services mostly to clients dealing with electronics.
Clamshell packing involves the use of pre-formed plastics to package products. It is mainly used for small and medium sized consumer products. This packaging service uses aluminum foil or plastics; thus, it protects the product against external factors.
Kit assembly and Co-packing
Kit assembly refers to incorporation of individual components into a container. Items are put together for ease in packaging. Hoxton Industry’s kit assembly packaging service offers flexibility with regards to kit content. Our team of kit assemblers can assemble both standardized and non-standardized products. We offer many kit assembly options; such as, promotional assembly and retail assembly. Hoxton also provides co-packing services. If the client company does not have the capacity to package, the client can contract us to package the products. Co-packing implies that the client hires us to provide packaging services over a specified period of time.
Labelling is an add-on packaging service. Once the product has been sealed, it is labeled with an aim of providing the product information to the end user. Labels may have general product information or specific information required by law. Product information influences the customer choice in purchasing the product. We have experience in various types of labeling which include; barcodes, batch labels and stickers.
Warehousing and container unloading.
We have the capacity to store the client’s goods and materials after packaging. At Hoxton, we provide both long term and short term storage services. Our warehouse also receives goods accompanied with unloading benefits for our clients. Our team unpacks and repacks your product in the most efficient manner. The warehouse provides for pallet storage, pallet wrapping and proper inventory control.
