New Encase Management Team

Encase has a new management team to boost the company’s already strong and experienced staff. The new team brings more than seven hundred years of additional current industry experience to this 1969-established company. Fourteen of the twenty-two strong team worked earlier for Linpac and D S Smith. They are well used to working together and are attracted to Encase by existing staff knowhow and commitment, up-to-date machinery, new investment, flexible approach and the group strength of parent company COPI.

As a company independent of paper suppliers, Encase offers cost effective innovative customer-focused packaging solutions employing its new investment in machines and systems and, most importantly, giving VIP treatment to all customers.

Managing director, John Lowe, who brings his forty years of corrugated board experience to Encase said, “We understand the needs of customers and have a team of outstanding quality and experience. I have worked with most of them for years. We listen to our customers and offer them innovative and cost-effective solutions. We hope this will be of interest to existing and new customers.”

In addition to its UK operations, the group also has packaging plants in Barbados, Jamaica and Trinidad where it trades as Caribbean Packaging Industries Ltd In Kenya, East Africa Packaging Industries Ltd has factories in Nairobi and Mombasa.

In the UK market Encase benefits from the COPI group’s considerable financial resources and global experience in the corrugated board marketplace.

Independent Encase and all COPI businesses are independent of paper mills and paper manufacturing and have well developed relationships with paper suppliers globally.

Quality control. Encase Corrugated is accredited to ISO 9001 2000. The company also holds BRC/IOP Global Standard – Food Packaging and Other Packaging Materials (Issue 2) for the manufacture of corrugated packaging. Encase is committed to promoting and exceeding these standards - so its customers can avoid their customers being put at risk.

Encase and the Environment. Corrugated board is recognised as an environmentally-friendly product, fully biodegradable and fully recyclable, up to six times! Encase also uses biodegradable inks for decorative printing and graphics. The board is manufactured from at least 70 percent virgin fibre pulp (produced under FSC certification) which consists of forest thinnings and waste from sawmills. The remaining 30 percent of the raw pulp material is from recycled fibre.

Encase corrugated manufacturing plants are totally CFC free and manufacture to the latest ISO environmental standards.

To minimise its carbon footprint, Encase regularly has energy reviews at all facilities and Encase is working to optimise delivery systems so customers still get what they want, when they want it but without unnecessary environmental impact.

The new substrates Encase produces are thinner in calliper and have logistical and storage benefits – reducing vehicle movements and thereby carbon dioxide emissions.

Encase - Leaving a lighter footprint on the world.
