The New Year is the perfect time to reflect on all of our achievements from last year. 2019 was a great year for us here at Springpack, a lot happened! From moving to a new warehouse to the launch of our brand new website in October, 2019 was a very busy year for us!
Read on to discover our 2019 highlights…
Going Back To Our Roots
First and foremost, 2019 saw us going back to our roots. We changed our name from Springpack Direct back to Springpack. With plans of launching a brand new website later in the year and fresh new branding, we decided to ‘strip back’ to our original company name.
New Website Launch
October 2019 saw the launch of our brand new website. This was a very exciting time for us here at Springpack, and we couldn’t wait to hear what our customers thought of the new site. We are constantly trying to come up with ways to make ordering protective packaging even easier for our customers, and our new website does just that!
With so many new and handy features, it’s now even easier than ever to order packaging online. For instance, our new box calculator takes the guesswork out of finding the right size packaging for you.
To use the box calculator simply enter the height, length and width of the product you want to package, and you’ll be shown results of he boxes that are most suitable! The box calculator is definitely one of our favourite features of the new website, and it allows our customers to quickly locate the boxes they need.
Our new website has been designed to make ordering and managing your account a breeze. Our ordering system is quick, efficient and user-friendly for all. The new site enables you to access all previous orders, including your ‘specials’, making it even easier to quickly order your favourite products.
We think our new site is extremely easy to navigate, and the addition of pages like our Environmental Range and eCommerce Range help our customers to quickly find the products they need. By having all of our eco-friendly packaging products in one place, it couldn’t be easier to make your packaging process more environmentally friendly!
Another great benefit of our new site is the improved mobile website design. This means our customers have access to their accounts, and our fantastic product range, wherever they go. It’s just another way we have made ordering packaging online even easier.
Record Sales Month
July was also a very exciting month for us as we broke our all-time sales record! We couldn’t have done it without the constant support of our wonderful customers, so thank you again to all our loyal customers!
At Springpack, we are firm believers in celebrating success, and we were sure to celebrate our record-breaking month in style! We braved a rainy summer’s day and had a company BBQ. We also had a rugby ball shaped bucking bronco and lots of ice cream to celebrate the team’s hard work!
Despite the rain, we all had a great time celebrating the excellent team effort of all the Packaging Pros here at Springpack.
But the excitement didn’t stop there! In September 2019 we moved into our brand new warehouse, bringing together the entire Springpack team. Earlier in the year we had plans to find a new warehouse, as we had outgrown our old one, and needed more space to stock and process all of our customer orders.
Reflecting on where we started, Springpack has really come a long way. Back in 1975, when Springpack was established, our home was the garage attached to our CEO’s house! Today, our home is our brand new 53,000 sq ft warehouse, an accredited facility, where we would typically hold 8-12 weeks stock of our major stock lines.
Since moving into our new home, we have been busy making use of all our new storage space and processing even more orders for our wonderful customers.

New Product Launches
2019 was also a great year for product launches. We introduced a number of brand new products to our wide range that reduces downtime, storage space and cost. The addition of these new products helps make our customer’s packaging processes even more effective and efficient.
Xtrastretch is an exclusive pallet wrap that was introduced by Springpack in 2019. This pallet wrap has been designed to maximise efficiency and boasts a number of great benefits.
A key benefit of Xtrastretch pallet wrap is that it has 67% more film per roll than a standard 300m roll (which makes a roll of this pallet wrap longer than 5 Big Ben’s stacked on top of one another!).
This product drastically reduces both storage space and the amount of downtime spent changing rolls, making it an extremely cost-effective solution to your pallet wrapping needs.
If you are looking for ways to make your packaging process more eco-friendly, Xtrastretch will minimise your plastic usage by approximately 70%! This product is an all-round great addition to the range of pallet wraps we stock here at Springpack.
Our Postal Boxes are available in a whole range of different sizes, so they are suitable for products of any shape or size! Made from high-quality corrugated board, these robust boxes are a great option for eCommerce businesses.
Storage space is kept to a minimum with these boxes, as they all arrive flat packed. They can be made up in seconds, providing a quick and easy solution to sending fragile items through the post.
They are all produced with a quick self-seal strip which makes them an incredibly efficient solution to packaging books, catalogues, and other such items for the post.
Paper Mailing Bags
Paper Mailing Bags are a great eco-friendly alternative to standard mailing bags. They are 100% plastic-free, reusable and recyclable.
Paper Mailing Bags are also a fantastic eCommerce option. They come in a variety of sizes and have a tight tape-free seal to keep products safely inside. This means that you can safely package products ranging from clothing and jewellery to technology.
On top of that, Paper Mailing Bags are printable. In a market where company branding is essential to getting a business noticed and remembered, an easy-print option is an ideal option.
And with that, we’ve reached the end of another great year here at Springpack! Our team of Packaging Pros would like to say a huge thank you to our customers for all of your support during 2019, and we look forward to working with you all again in 2020!
