Boxes and Packaging has expanded its operations to a new industrial unit at Thorne Park, Doncaster, UK.

As part of its expansion, the company leased a 52,160ft² facility in Doncaster for a period of ten years.

The new facility, comprising a modern industrial/warehouse unit of steel portal frame construction, is expected to become operational, following completion of landlord works in September.

This is anticipated to increase the company's production capabilities, while improving its logistical efficiencies as its location offers unrivalled access to the motorway and railway networks.

"We aim to offer the highest quality operational accommodation and we believe Thorne Park provides this."

Thorne Park's developer Henry Boot Developments project manager Tim Burn said: "We aim to offer the highest quality operational accommodation and we believe Thorne Park provides this. There is already significant interest in the other new units, which are due for completion in September."

The Thorne Park facility will complement the company's existing network of 12 manufacturing operations across the UK.

Said to offer the country's largest independent national sheet plant network, Boxes and Packaging designs and manufactures bespoke corrugated packaging solutions and in-house printing, along with a range of ancillary packaging products.

Boxes and Packaging claims to use board that is made from at least 90% recycled fibres and also said that 100% of its product is recyclable and fully biodegradable.
