Packaging Innovations Success

Our fourth time exhibiting at Packaging Innovations on the 1st and 2nd March, was our most encouraging yet. Both days of the show, saw an extremely high footfall, where we met with customers old and new to discuss their requirements and work with them to develop solutions to improve their co-packing function – and consequently their business.

The exhibition always provides a fantastic opportunity for us to get in front of key decision makers, as well as a chance to catch up with customers and network with our peers – and this show was no different.

This year, the Evolve Pack stand had a fresh new look, which attracted many visitors and allowed us to talk about our wide range of services, from manual re-work and gift set collation to more specialised services such as container decanting and pick to order, with potential new clients.

We also sponsored the show’s “Happy Hour”, where all visitors could redeem a voucher for a free drink, providing the ideal time for us all to network in a relaxed atmosphere away from the stand.

We feel that Packaging Innovations 2017 was the perfect platform for us to promote our services to a wider audience and are looking forward to exhibiting again next year.

Evolve Pack to unveil new services at Packaging Innovations 2017

On the 1st and 2nd of March, Evolve Pack will once again be exhibiting at Packaging Innovations, the UK’s only event dedicated to the packaging industry, which is being held at the NEC in Birmingham.

Our stand, H34, will be showcasing the wide range of services we offer, whilst our expert team will be on hand to advise on the best packing solution for you and your business, as well as answer any packing queries you may have.

Traditionally recognised for our contract packing solutions – from flow wrapping, cartoning, shrink wrapping and multi-bagging to gift set collations, end of aisle displays and manual rework – we are also promoting our Container De-canting and Storage services.

A recent move to new premises has enabled Evolve Pack to extend its services, with additional storage space enabling us to provide storage only solutions. Dedicated loading bays also mean we can offer an effective and efficient container de-canting service – meaning we can now provide a complete turnkey solution, from container to shelf, or even direct to consumer using our pick and pack service.

“Packaging Innovations is a truly unique event and a must attend for anyone involved in our industry,” explains Steve Frixou. “For Evolve Pack, it provides the perfect platform from which to launch our new services, as well as a chance to meet customers and get in front of the key decision makers in the industry. We are really looking forward to showcasing what Evolve Pack has to offer and welcoming visitors to our stand.

“This year, we are also the sponsor of the show’s “Happy Hour”. All attendees to the event will receive a voucher in their welcome bag which entitles them to a free drink between 2.30pm and 3.30pm – an ideal time to take a break and a chance to network in a more relaxed atmosphere!” adds Steve.

If you would like to arrange a meeting with Evolve Pack at Packaging Innovations, please call Commercial Manager Joanne Gill on 07415 079810 or just pop along to stand H34.

Joanne Gill - NEW COMMERCIAL MANAGER

Evolve Pack strengthens team with appointment of new Commercial Manager

Evolve Pack, one of the UK’s leading contract packing companies, has strengthened its managerial team with the appointment of Joanne Gill as Commercial Manager.

Joanne brings over 25 years of commercial knowledge to the role, having previously held positions with M&S Logistics, a global provider of bulk liquid transport, and Brenntag, a global chemical distributor. Joanne’s ability to work with businesses of all sizes, from global giants to specialist regional producers, will prove invaluable in helping to establish Evolve Pack as a leader in its field.

“Traditionally Evolve Pack has been regarded as a biscuit and confectionary packer. However, the company works with a far wider array of sectors and offers an extensive range of services. As Commercial Manager, it will be my job to ensure both existing and potential customers are aware of this, as well as identifying other markets where we can really help businesses manage their packing needs more effectively and efficiently,” explains Joanne.

“The company has also just moved into new, larger premises and now has the capacity to take on new, and more varied, work. One of my responsibilities will be to find this business, helping to grow Evolve Pack from the already successful business it is, into the market leader we know it can be – and I am very much looking forward to the challenge!” adds Joanne.

Steve Frixou, Managing Director of Evolve Pack, welcomes Joanne to the team: “This is an extremely important time for Evolve Pack. Over the past twenty years we have developed the business from a recruitment agency into what it is today – one of the country’s leading contract packing companies – and we are now well placed to take the business even further. This is where Joanne comes in. Her ability to spot opportunities and maximise them is second to none, and we’re confident that this, combined with her sound commercial awareness, will help us achieve that next level.

“Joanne will be supported by a strong operations team lead by Operations Director, Johnny Izamis, who joined us earlier this year. The aim of these two new appointments is to further enhance – both operationally and commercially – our existing team, which already has extensive knowledge and experience of the Evolve Pack brand, creating a bright and positive future for the business and its employees,” adds Steve.

Evolve Pack offers a comprehensive range of contract packing solutions from flow wrapping and multi-bagging to cartoning, shrink wrapping and manual rework. It also offers an innovative Managed Internal Packing Service (MIPS), where a skilled, flexible work force is supplied to a customer’s facility, providing an efficient yet cost-effective alternative to using a recruitment agency.
