A British company using natural wool in the acoustics sector requires a supplier of protective packaging that does not use plastic. The packaging must protect wool products from moisture and dust and be environmentally friendly and lightweight. The right partner could be anywhere in Europe or elsewhere overseas. A supplier agreement is sought.
The company produces sustainable acoustic solutions from natural fibres (mainly wool). The products enhance internal environments, reducing background noise and improving how speech is heard. The products are high performance and professionally tested for each environment or internal space, which may include offices, schools, restaurants and hotels. The company prides itself on making products of solid design and carrying out highly technical acoustic surveys.
The company already uses a British supplier for its packaging but is expanding and seeking alternative arrangements due to its sustainability policy.
The annual order will be 9 rolls a year and the UK company will order them one at a time.
The current packaging (a plastic-made wrapping film) comes on a roll just under a meter wide, each roll weighing 250g. Products are wrapped inside the plastic and then it is cut to size and sealed at each end. The UK company is looking for something similar and it has to be lightweight.
A supplier that is willing to start with small batches which may increase in number and frequency over time is preferred.
Expertise needed in alternatives to plastic, and/or the manufacture and sale of other suitable products which could include compostable and biodegradable options. The packaging needs to be lightweight, hardier than cardboard, shower proof and give a suitable barrier between the products and the environment when the products are being handled and transported.
A manufacturing partner specialising in innovative packaging solutions and willing to sell initially small batches of goods to the UK company's specification. A supplier agreement is sought.
