2017 sees Linkx Packaging Systems celebrate their 10th anniversary in style as they enter a new stage of progression.
From humble beginnings in 2007, founding directors David Hayward and Doug Reilly, have grown Linkx Packaging Systems over the last 10 years into one of the UK’s leading innovators, manufacturers and distributors of high quality, future proof packaging machinery and systems.
Founded in 2007 Linkx began operations in a small business unit. During that first year the firm foundations of innovative ideas, quality products, combined with excellent service and support, were laid and soon rewarded with the successful installation at their first blue chip company.
By 2009 Linkx Packaging Systems was in such high demand that it upgraded to larger premises, which enabled an increase in production and turnover of almost 400%. And they haven’t slowed down. From 2009 to the end of 2016 production and turnover increased further, with an average yearly growth of 75%.
Entering 2017, and still building on original foundations, Linkx now provide machines, solutions and service to companies all over the world. “Linkx Packaging Systems provide first class UK service and support in the Food, Homecare and Ecommerce sectors. We pride ourselves on our UK manufacturing and production of quality machinery at affordable prices. With turnover consistently increasing, we hope to push all our subsidiaries to become completely self-sufficient,” says David Hayward managing director and co-founder.
Things are only going up for Linkx Packaging Systems, with an ever growing UK and world-wide customer base, the company has continued to expand to some 35 staff and Suffolk based premises has more than doubled in size to over 11,000ft2 to include three workshops, design, sales, service and spares offices and a brand new showroom.
The new showroom will showcase Linkx Packaging Systems fully automated shelf ready and Ecommerce packaging machines including the latest Case Erectors, Tray Erectors, Closers and Loaders, along with machines and systems from their group of subsidiaries; Boxsizer® and Siat.co.uk.
“Our new show room will allow us to fully demonstrate our new machines within a controlled production-like environment, showing how they can be integrated with new or existing production lines. This is a huge benefit to prospective customers as it allows the machines to be previewed with similar products to their own without the cost of trial runs or machine hires” says David Hayward
