 A little bit about us

Come and visit us ! We are proud to be a British manufacturer. We also have links to Scandanavia ( hence Mak the Viking ! ), using their green values and flexible work ethic*.    

 

* our flexible work ethic is built on trust. We provide a relaxed working environment with as few restrictions as possible. Holidays are flexible and timeoff for family or personal issues are encouraged. Staff receive free fruit and refreshments, afterall 'an army marches on its stomach'. Our factory staff are all paid above the minimum wage. All these little things provide a pleasant place to work and ultimately provide better productivity and ensuring the customer gets the best service.  

 

A packaging manufacturer that knows its responsibilty

 

 

 

At makkipak we take the issue of protecting our enviroment very seriously. We can only do our bit but we encourage all our customers to ensure our packaging materials are recycled properly. Check with your local council, recycling centres and collection points that the plastics can be recycled. With regards to bubble wrap, this can be recycled but check first with your recycling centre. If you are concerned with bubble wrap reaching landfill, we offer a biodegradable version which will break down harmlessly in landfill conditions.


To avoid plastics reaching our oceans the best solution is to ensure they are placed in appropriate recycling bins and to avoid littering at all costs as plastics in our towns and countryside will eventually find a way into our river systems which feed our oceans.  


All our waste corrugated board is either reused as void fill, layer pads or sent for recycling. We use a trusted company (Viridor) to recycle all of our waste cardboard which is collected weekly.  None of our cardboard waste enters bins destined for landfill. 

 

We offer biodegradable bubble bags as an alternative to the standard grade which we try to encourage our customers to use. The biodegradable bubble bags are made with a biodegration initiator that encourages microbial colonies to break them down into a non-harmful material.


Our diesel vans are fitted with AddBlue which removes harmful pollutants, including nitrogen oxides, of which nitrogen dioxide is the most harmful.

 

Makkipak also supplies a huge range of packaging materials, if you can't see the product you require just call or email us with your enquiry. Our experienced and friendly sales team will be more than happy to help.

 

Keeping business and life simple (as it should be). 


There are no complications to how we operate, you order, we deliver. The business world is unpredictable, our flexibilty ensures we are always ready to react quickly to panic orders.
