Industrial packaging is 100% our focus, it is our business to minimise clients’ packaging spend and deliver tailored solutions and experience. In addition, clients benefit from PackSolve’s ability to minimise risk factors, such as industrial relations and insurance risks.
Sustainability is a primary focus area for the PackSolve Group and the company acknowledges its impacts on the environment and therefore provides processes to minimize these impacts. Our management systems guide our waste programs for paper, steel, timber and plastic. Our timber purchases are from sustainable resources, and our plastics and steel are fully recyclable.
Our drum division take sustainability to new heights, we have designed and developed technology and a drum product that is reusable. A comprehensive LCA was completed by EY – Rotterdam with SGS, providing a third-party audit of our LCA. The drums we sell are 24% less impactful on the environment in comparison to a standard drum.
