06: About GWP Correx®.

A material handling specialist

GWP Correx®, although only being formed in 2013, actually has more than 20 years experience in the safe handling of items in line-side, in plant and supply chain applications.

This is because, as part of the larger GWP Group (founded originally in 1990), this specialist division was setup to the growth in demand for handling totes and containers.

GWP’s relationship with SSI Schaefer (manufacturer of the Euro Light containers) also goes back many years, with the Conductive packaging division being exclusive UK stock holders of a wide range of the SSI anti static lines.

Customised Euro containers
GWP Correx® can customise your Euro containers, with dividers, foam dunnage, inserts, exterior print, lids and more...

But what does this mean to your business?

Firstly, it means you can source a huge range of handling totes, boxes, dividers and other similar products from a single source. These products are extremely competitively priced, can be customised in a number of ways, and guarantee efficient handling and part protection.

If one of these products is not exactly what you require, GWP can also design and manufacture you a custom solution from materials such as Correx®.
