Packaging can involve shrink wrapping and blister packing to protect a product from damage. In addition to the provision of packaging materials, packaging companies also offer services including procurement packaging services, product packaging services, printing packaging services, gift assembly services, shrink wrapping, clamshell, blister packing, bundle wrapping, and repacking.
Packaging and assembly often go hand in hand, and it’s important to make sure when looking for a professional company that they have the staff and facilities to assemble products to specification , this is especially the case when moving house, where valuable items must be packaged to be transported. Moving house or business requires a number of different packaging solutions, moving boxes can be simply open containers or they can be packaging boxes – designed specifically for glassware, for example, with additional insulating material. Storage boxes also protect items when not in use.
Specialised packaging service providers also offer sorting, sealing, bagging and decanting of goods, liquids and products including hazardous waste, HACCP, showbags and even cool rooms. These services can include packing and assembling large quantities of products used for public relations campaigns, giveaways, pouches, sachets and magazine inserts. Liquid items packaged and assembled can include everything from chemicals to cosmetic creams. Some assembly and ‘filling’ companies can also assist in sourcing the appropriate container or packaging to suit the product or the distribution strategy.
