Emballage 2012

Whirlowdale is always seeking to expand its product portfolio with the aim to be the most comprehensive supplier of materials handling products in the UK.

With this in mind, Managing Director Andrew Pearce and Product Development Manager Dave Davies travelled to Paris recently to attend the Emballage Packaging Exhibition. Held at The Parc des Expositions de Paris Nord Villepinte, this important trade show had over 1,300 exhibitors with more than 500 product brands represented, drawing an attendance of over 90,000 professionals.

Emaballage Packing ExhibitionThis exhibition displays the remarkable dynamism present in the packaging sector and gave Andrew and Dave the opportunity to meet existing suppliers and potential new partners and to keep up to date with innovations in this important area.

The visit proved to be very successful with exciting business opportunities being opened up with a number of French pallet companies, so providing additional supply lines and sales opportunities for our range of wooden pallets. In addition to this, a meeting took place with a major manufacturer of plastic products, and a new product launch is anticipated in the very near future.

The contacts made will help to push Whirlowdale towards their goal of being the best provider of materials handling products – Whirlowdale will design, specify, quantify, and deliver the right carrier without bias to any one platform.
