A Look Back on 2018

Happy New Year from all of the team at Glossop Cartons! With the festive season now behind us, we look back over the last 12 months of key events for Glossop Cartons.

Systems

A key achievement in helping us to operate more sustainably last year was the arrival of the UK’s first Brausse Forza 900 C3 folder gluer. Not only has it helped us deliver cartons to the highest pharmaceutical standards (ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001) it is also highly energy-efficient and significantly reduces carton waste. Fully compatible with our existing machinery, it’s simple to operate, fast-running and quick to make-ready, enabling the team to move swiftly from job to job.

Skills

In June 2018, our Managing Director Jacky Sidebottom-Every took part in a round table organised by TheBusinessDesk.com to discuss the issues and problems facing SMEs, with a specific focus on achieving growth through mergers and acquisitions. Jacky felt privileged to be able to offer an insight into Glossop Carton’s journey from a humble start-up to becoming a leading manufacturer of carton board packaging.

Sporting start

This year we were delighted to announce Glossop Carton’s sponsorship of the new sports kit for Gamesley Community Primary School which will be worn for sports including netball, football, tag rugby, cross country and athletics. It’s great to be able to support one of the area’s primary schools as it strives to give the best possible start in life to its young pupils.

Success

Glossop Cartons were delighted to have been named as the Business of the Year (over £5m) at the Stockport Business Awards in October 2018. The team were also listed as finalists in both the Manufacturing Excellence and Family Business of the Year categories of the 2018 Midlands Family Business Awards. This recognition is testament to the hard work and dedication of every person who works at Glossop Cartons and the continued support of all our customers.

Jacky Sidebottom-Every was listed in Print Week’s Power 100 chart – Thank you to all of our customers who took the time to vote.

Thank you to all of our customers for your continued support, we look forward to working with you again this year.
