Rigid box specialist Pollard Group, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, has invested a further £200,000 in new equipment for its Leicestershire factory.
The company has installed a Lamina 1116 Blackline fully-auto litho sheet laminator, in particular to meet the demands of a significant new order from a major high street retailer.
The new machine will enable Pollards to produce printed liners for the insides of boxes to an extremely high standard and around three times faster than its previous method. It will further enhance the company’s reputation as the UK’s leading supplier of high-quality luxury and gift packaging solutions for a variety of markets including premium drinks, hair care and beauty.
The machine was supplied by Lamina’s UK sales agent Finishline Machinery after Pollards’ managing director Mark Pollard saw it on show at FESPA.
“The Lamina 116 Blackline exactly meets our requirements,” comments Mark. “It will ensure we can deliver the best quality and finish in our boxes to help customers promote their brands and further enhance the end-user experience.”
Pollard to highlight personal care capabilities
The latest manufacturing and decoration techniques that help to create on-shelf appeal and brand differentiation in the competitive personal care and cosmetic markets will be a central theme of the Pollard Boxes stand at this year’s Packaging Innovations in London.
Presentation box gets the Regal treatment
Rigid box specialist Pollard Boxes has produced a bespoke presentation box for leading Chivas Regal Scotch Whisky. The box has been specially created for the brand’s limited-edition Chivas 18 Ultimate Cask Collection, a travel retail exclusive reinterpretation of its renowned blend Chivas 18.
High quality decorative effects to enhance the luxury image of products in the drink and beauty sectors will be demonstrated by rigid box specialist Pollard Boxes at this year’s Luxe Pack in Monaco, along with a host of eye-catching designs that help maximize on-shelf presence and appeal in competitive markets. A highlight of the stand will be the travel retail presentation box created for Glenfiddich 21 year old whisky.
