Why GWP Group?

At GWP, we believe your packaging supplier should play an integral role in your supply chain, offering the complete spectrum of protective packaging products as a cost-effective manufacturer and cost-focused design partner.

As such, GWP Group offers you a unique opportunity. That is, to combine all your packaging requirements into a genuine single-source contract with a company that is 100% focused on delivering you a genuine competitive advantage. If you value expertise in reducing packaging costs, warehousing requirements, damage in transit, and packing and fulfilment times, GWP has the expertise to make it happen.

So, whether you require corrugated cardboard packaging, protective cases with engineered foam inserts, ESD-safe conductive packaging, Pantone colour-matched print, re-usable Correx® or material handling products or even a completely bespoke design solution using a combination of all of these, we can help.

When was GWP Group established?

The Great Western Packaging Co. was originally established in August 1990. Initially focusing only on corrugated packaging, the business acquired Corstat Containers in 2003 (later becoming GWP Conductive) and Eastman Packaging (GWP Protective) in 2006. The company was rebranded in 2009 to GWP Group to reflect the diverse nature of the packaging the business could now supply, with the GWP Correx® division also added in 2013. GWP became part of Macfarlane Packaging – the UK’s largest packaging distributor – in 2021.

Where is GWP based?

GWP has two sites in the Southwest of the UK. The head office and corrugated manufacturing facility are based in Cricklade, Wiltshire, while the GWP Protective foam conversion site is in Salisbury. These locations allow GWP to supply customers throughout the UK.

What do I do if I need products from multiple divisions of GWP?

If your needs cross the boundaries between packaging disciplines, our framework and in-house teamwork allow us to work with you as an individual organisation. This fundamentally enables you to acquire all aspects of your packaging from one source, lowering expenditure, paperwork and administration.

Can GWP help me improve my packing processes?

Whilst you could analyse many aspects of your business to identify efficiency gains, the largest opportunity lies with your packaging. And with packaging being involved in many production and fulfilment operations processes, the improvements can be quick and significant. GWP can improve how you handle orders and deliveries. Improve (and reduce) the way you store and retrieve stock. And even minimise the admin of ordering and stock management.

Why does GWP not list stock sizes and prices?

Many packaging suppliers would rather sell the nearest “off the shelf” carton than provide custom designs. Or use a library of standard options. Whilst this may be relatively low cost, it can cause issues. GWP believes intelligent design and material use are paramount to your packaging and wider business. By working with experienced designers, your packaging can resolve any problems you’re facing, perform to its’ full potential, and be genuinely cost-effective.

Can GWP help prevent products from being damaged in transit?

Regardless of the value of the products you manufacture or distribute, working with GWP Group, you can benefit from strategies to improve product protection and reduce transit damage. These are strategies that we fully tailor to your business. This approach, in turn, can lower the cost associated with returns, replacements and written-off stock, enhance your brand perception and even drive repeat sales through end-user satisfaction.
