Wolverhampton based packaging distributors, Network Packaging, have fought off strong competition to clinch one of the top honours at the 2012 Express & Star Business Awards, winning the coveted Small Business of the Year category.
Covering the West Midlands, the Express & Star is the UK’s biggest-selling regional evening newspaper, owned by Midland News Association Ltd.
Network Packaging received their award at a glittering ceremony held on Thursday 22 March, at the Wolverhampton Racecourse, West Midlands. Their category was sponsored by local solicitors, Higgs & Sons.
The company impressed the judges with a range of strengths, including being able to demonstrate a competitive advantage, plans for future growth, innovation and the support of a highly committed workforce – all against the backdrop of a challenging economy. The judging process included a fact-finding visit by judges to the Network Packaging site, to find out more about the company and meet staff.
Network’s Andy Plimmer said, “We are thrilled to win the Small Business of the Year Award. Being a small, close knit organisation, this prize is ultimately down to the contribution made by all our employees.
“And despite the ‘ups and downs’ of the economy, we continue to be successful in building a growing reputation by being able to closely identify our customers requirements, being innovative and remaining consistent in all that we do.”
As one of the most progressive packaging materials suppliers in the UK, Network Packaging continue to provide an impressive portfolio of the most creative and contemporary packaging solutions available. This is backed by extensive packaging industry knowledge and experience, together with excellent customer service.
Recently and much due to the growth in the point-of-sale and retail packaging sector, Network Packaging established a sister company, Network Display. Collocated at the same site in Wolverhampton, Network Display have quickly built a solid reputation for producing some of the most innovative retail packaging solutions in the marketplace.
