Helping You Shape Your Packaging Strategy

Woodway UK, a trading division of Bunzl Retail & Healthcare Supplies Limited is a leading supplier of packaging materials in the UK. What makes us different is our approach and structure, which is designed with flexibility and satisfaction in mind. Our team are experts in the packaging market enabling them to offer a collaborative and consultative service. We work with our customers to ensure that their experience is exceptional, from first contact to delivery of product.

Why Use Woodway UK?

Environment – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Woodway UK Ltd are now FSC® (licence FSC-C113762) Certified and hold the ISO14001 environmental standard.  As a company we take seriously our responsibility to the environment and our impact on it. This extends to understanding customers’ own CSR values and objectives and helping them adhere to their environmental credentials through the products they are supplied with. We work closely with our global supplier partners to provide recycled, recyclable and reusable products where available and our customer audits look at packaging waste reduction.

Inspire Through Innovation

Woodway have a dedicated Technical Support team to find a ‘best fit’ packaging solution. This often requires specific design and innovation to maximise protection whilst minimising waste. Several of Woodway’s bespoke designs are registered with the Intellectual Property Office.

In order to assess the packaging requirements of a specific product, the Technical Team can audit a customer’s premises and the supply chain so they can evaluate all the ‘touch points’ a product goes through before reaching the end-user.

Flexibility in Supply

Our in-house technical team is supported by our on-site manufacturing which enables quick turnaround of samples and bespoke small runs. The range of machinery onsite provides flexibility allowing us to offer a large selection of products, sizes and grades with fast turnaround.

Our supply options are flexible to meet the demands of our customers and include the option for stock holding.

Managing Costs, Providing Value

Woodway’s purchasing team ensure cost stability and they have long-lasting relationships with global sourcing partners to ensure the best price for the most suitable product. As part of the auditing process the Sales and Technical Team also look at alternative products which may yield lower costs either directly or indirectly through space saving, operative time and shipping costs.

Supporting Processes

As the market develops, the logistics of processing has seen an increase in automation. We work closely to provide support, whether by supplying new packaging machinery to speed up the processes, or providing products appropriate for the logistical and packing methods used.  Our supplier partnerships ensure we are aware of the latest products and technological developments enabling customers to make informed decisions for their packaging strategies.
