"The triple pack solution from Smurfit Kappa has cured an age old problem for us. Triple pack promotions typically incur an extra cost through additional packaging and manual re-pack complexity.

A triple pack is then sold at a discounted price - profitability is therefore, eroded at both ends. The Smurfit Kappa solution gave us a single piece unit, in contrast to our historic five component triple packs, that is both cheaper and easier to pack.

With Smurfit Kappa's innovation, we have been able to run a highly successful promotion, gaining incremental sales without sacrificing margin. Smurfit Kappa's approach to the project from concept through to implementation and production has been a breath of fresh air".

SK Stalybridge achieves World Class Ethical and Social Standards

Stalybridge achieved one of the UK’s highest ever recorded scores in its first two-day independently audited Workplace Conditions Assessment held in November 2011, scoring 99% against the Workplace Performance index.  The highest score even given by the Auditor in his 40-year history!

Covering statutory and social responsibility, Labour relations, Working conditions, Health and Safety, Quality: Management systems, Environmental impact and Business Practice, the assessment is part of a global programme by Astra Zeneca, featuring a unique scorecard that produces measured results against industry sectors, country and global benchmarks.  Our score exceeded the UK’s average performance by 13% and the Global average for its sector by 22%.

A fantastic achievement showing the importance SK place on ethical and social standards, ensuring our Pan-European customers can be confident their procurement processes do not undermine the strong social and ethical positions required of today’s leading brands.
