Glossop Cartons, the UK’s leading manufacturer of carton board products based in Padfield, continues to buck recent economic trends by investing heavily in some new machinery to cope with demand.
Glossop Cartons director, Jacky Sidebottom said, “We are constantly looking at new equipment to see what it can bring to our business. The delivery of a new Bobst Visioncut 106 LE die-cutter will help us be more efficient and also give us the extra capacity we need for our future acquisition plans.”
Delivery of the twenty ton machine was always going to be a challenge as the plant is based on a steep narrow road in Padfield. Jacky said “We wanted to take advantage of a planned road closure so that we didn’t stop the traffic. It wasn’t easy but the suppliers at Visioncut managed a rapid turnaround on delivery and the machine was installed with the minimum of disruption.”
Now employing around 50 people locally, this is great news for the local economy and follows previous good news we reported from other local growing companies, Pressure Tech and TH Plastics in recent weeks.
Established in 1982 and based in Padfield, Glossop Cartons is now one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of carton board packaging products for blue-chip organisations across the UK. Producing quality litho printed cartons, wallets, blister cards, skin pack cards and packaging, the family owned and run firm employs around 50 people locally.
