More Than Case & Foam Manufacturers.
Custom designs to stock management and calculated performance levels – we can help
If you choose to work with GWP Protective, you can be certain we will be constantly striving to achieve your complete satisfaction.
This is achieved partly through offering you the largest range of protective cases available from a single source in the UK. And providing your business with unrivalled experience and expertise in the creation of foam inserts and packaging.
However, we also take great pride in being able to offer your business total flexibility. This in turn involves providing you with a highly bespoke service throughout conceptualisation and all the way through to delivery.
A focus on design, which includes a mobile service, calculating exact levels of performance for your foam inserts and technical problem solving, regularly exceeds our existing customers’ expectations, no matter how demanding.
Plus, to further aid your business, you can also take advantage of a full inventory and stock management service.
Why choose GWP Protective as your case and foam partner?
01: Product Protection
Unrivalled protection for your tools, equipment, products and more...
The cornerstone of GWP Protective’s business is protecting your products.
So whether you are experiencing damage to high value items, suffering from high volumes of returns or finding your reputation is suffering from unreliable supply, GWP can help.
Find out more about the specific services developed to prevent transit damage below.
03: Manufacturing Excellence.
Why you should consider aluminium cases
Although you can source the widest range of “off the shelf” cases from GWP Protective, by choosing GWP as your case and foam partner you are getting much more than just another supplier.
You can specify cases designed and produced to your exact brief. Your foam and case can be manufactured together to ensure a perfect fit. And you can choose from a range of additional features – such as foam laser etching – simply not available anywhere else.
Please see below to discover how working with a manufacturer – rather than a supplier – can aid your business.
04: Cost Reduction Strategies.
Taking a holistic view of your cases and foam
Whilst often the protection for your products or equipment is of the utmost importance (i.e. kit costing thousands of pounds simply cannot be damaged), GWP Protective will always look at ways to maximise the cost effectiveness of your cases and foam.
Whilst eliminating transit damage is one way of doing this, there are other tactics you can employ to drive down costs. For example, reducing your required warehouse space. Sourcing all packaging from a single source to reduce admins and benefit from economies of scale. Or even conducting a holistic, thorough analysis of your packaging and the associated processes.
Please see below for examples of these services that could help your business.
05: GWP Protective Operations.
A focus on precision manufacturing
Operating out of a modern, well equipped production facility in Salisbury, Wiltshire, GWP already work with clients throughout the UK, Europe and beyond. This has seen us forge strong partnerships with a wide range of organisations – from small businesses to international blue chip companies.
With a growing team of dedicated sales and customer support advisors, backed up by an expert design team and dedicated production planners and operatives, we take great pride in being responsive to your business’ needs and will always offer you the highest level of customer service.
The ethos of this customer service is based upon listening, understanding and providing the highest level of support.
Custom products for your business
Since GWP Protective was formed in 1990, the company has provided companies like yours with a wealth of knowledge and expertise of foam engineering. This has seen the creation of foam inserts from high quality materials such as Plastazote and other cross-linked polyethylene foams.
Using CNC routing, water-jet and pressing technology, GWP manufacture custom foam inserts for an infinite variety of products.
Utilising this material, your custom foam inserts provide the ideal protective foam packaging for your valued products.
One of GWP Protective’s unique selling points is the manufacture of both case and foam insert under one roof, ensuring that the fit between product, foam insert and protective case is always perfect.
The flight cases that we can also manufacture for you in house are designed to meet your specific needs / application.
By keeping production in house, it means it is possible to create single units, or many hundreds in a production run. GWP flight cases are renowned for their quality above all else and lead the way in both creative and innovative design.
Branded case options
The growth in the use of flight cases has also seen a market develop for more specialist cases. Whilst generally being available only in pre-defined sizes, the differences in construction have allowed for a number of different properties to be achievable.
Plastic, injected moulded cases have allowed for exceptionally strong, dust-proof, impact resistant and waterproof cases to be manufactured. Often known as “Peli Cases” (in fact a brand name for the most popular range), GWP Protective offer you the largest range of branded protective cases from a single source.
Add in a wide range of presentation, aluminium, rack mount and other specialist cases and the range of cases you can choose from can satisfy practically any requirement.
