02: How Crash Lock Boxes Work.

Easy assemble packaging boxes to improve your productivity

Crash lock boxes are designed in such a way that when the opposite corners are pushed towards each other , the base will automatically lock together to create a secure and rigid bottom to the container.

The clever design of crash lock boxes ensures that even though they are pre-glued, they can be supplied flat for the end user to assemble in one swift, easy action.

This has the additional benefit of reducing the risk of RSI for packing operatives.

05: About GWP Packaging.

A designer, manufacturer and supplier of corrugated boxes

GWP Packaging are one of the few companies in the UK that can manufacture bespoke crash lock packaging.

This due to significant investment in multi-point gluing production equipment, as well as an experienced in house design team with an in depth understanding of corrugated cardboard material and constructional engineering.

However, this actually sums up GWP as a whole quite well.

We place an emphasis on ensuring your packaging is designed so that it is perfect for your specific products, market or application. And by manufacturing in house, using the latest equipment and highly skilled production staff, you can be certain that your packaging will be of the highest quality too.

Flat packaging packaging
Crash lock boxes are ideal for multi-use packaging (such as food delivery services) as they easily fold flat for the return journey

The potential benefits to your business do not stop there though.

Due to the way GWP Group is setup, with a number of distinct divisions, it means you can source all of your packaging from a single source. This includes everything from corrugated boxes, through top foam, protective cases, picking bins, Correx totes and even anti static packaging. This single sourcing option ultimately reduces your costs and admin.

Add to this a number o unique services, including a full VMI (vendor managed inventory) whereby we hold your stock and deliver it just in time, and your business can realise improvements in efficiency, productivity and long term costs.
