Sydney Packaging Solutions

August 5, 2016

question

A lot of people ask what we do at Hoxton and I must admit that it’s hard to nail it down to a 20 second sound grab. We have explored with previous post what our function as a social enterprise is ….

 

we create jobs for people facing barriers to mainstream employment.

 

But as a social enterprise we also have a commercial aspect to what we do. We are Sydney Packaging Specialists, but what does that mean….. we are contract packers, co-packers, a packaging service, third party labour and the list goes on. But in a nutshell..

 

we solve your packaging headaches.

 

Here are some examples of Sydney Packaging solutions we have provided for customers;

 

Original Packaging

We undertake skin packaging for a large multinational hardware company. We receive shipping containers of raw components in from overseas. We then receipt, warehouse, skin package and pick/pack orders for the customer.  Skin packaging is excellent for retail display and has superior security benefits. We complete in excess of 100,000 skin pack units for this customer every year. This Sydney Packaging solution is an end to end solution for our customer which means they save invaluable internal resources which allows them to focus on their core business.

 

Promotional Packaging

We specialise in promotional packaging and undertake a line of shrink wrapping work for a Sydney based automotive supplier. We shrink wrap a promotional offer for them when they give away a small bottle of automotive fluid when you purchase a lager one. Shrink is extremely versatile and has become a very popular part of our Sydney Packaging solution. Prior to us providing this service our customer was taping the smaller bottle onto the larger one. Our shrink wrapping presentation is far superior and has also now given the company the ability to do a number of other promotions using shrink wrap.

 

Rework Packaging

Another line in our suite of Sydney packaging solutions is rework. We service a large national importer who imports a lot of lines from China. It happens from time to time that the item they imported doesn’t meet their specifications but the time involved in returning the product to the Chinese manufacturer means they need to find a local solution. We offer rework solutions such as over labelling, reconfiguring cartons, replacing barcode labels and updating ingredients list for the Australian market. Our customer doesn’t have the internal resources or structures for this ad-hoc work, so our rework solution is perfect for them.

 

So there it is, what we do, just not quiet in 20 seconds. To have a look some samples of our work pop over to our Packaging Solutions page and don’t forget check out our customer testimonials at the bottom of the page!
