Tidmas Townsend is a business packaging printer & manufacturer, specialising in e-commerce & Royal Mail packaging. The company is 65 years old and over the past 12 years turnover has increased by 400%.
From demand and customer enquiries, a gap in the market had been identified for short run (50 – 10k units) of printed large letter boxes where current minimum run tends to have to be 25k. Large letter packaging is proving ever more popular for sales of e-commerce items and there is extremely high demand – the business is one of the largest sellers of these items currently on Ebay for the large letter custom printed market.
The new equipment part funded by the SEBB Grant will create an offer of full colour laser printer large letter cardboard boxes for the micro and small e-commerce sellers. There will also be production efficiency savings in that can be measured in days while the business will create 2 new jobs to operate the equipment.
Marc from Tidmas Townsend said
With the help of the South East Business Boost Grant we have been able to invest in new equipment that will help us adapt to new markets & provide new products for our clients. We have also been able to create new positions in the business.
The support from the team was fantastic. They were with us every step of the way, making the whole process seamless. I cannot recommend them enough.
