Our Partnership with Curtis Packaging
Curtis Packaging, a distinguished sustainable packaging company headquartered in Redhill, Surrey, has established itself as a prominent player in the industry. Operating across two facilities situated conveniently opposite each other, the company is committed to ecological responsibility and innovation in the packaging sector.
In a pursuit to enhance their operational efficiency, Curtis Packaging found themselves dissatisfied with their existing Materials Handling provider. Seeking a reliable and tailored solution to modernise their aging fleet, they turned to their trusted Area Sales Manager, Kevin. The company’s collaboration with Kevin was marked by a shared vision of transparency, competitive pricing, and accessibility. Stuart, the dedicated Production Manager at Curtis Packaging, voiced his thoughts on this partnership, stating, “I talked to Kev as we needed a relationship with a company who are transparent, well priced & always on the end of the phone. Acclaim ticked all the boxes.”
Curtis Packaging required a diverse selection of trucks to facilitate their material handling needs. This included counterbalance trucks capable of efficiently transporting bulk materials on pallets and powered pallet trucks to navigate the bustling warehouse, characterised by heavy foot traffic.
Acclaim, rising to the challenge, provided a fitting solution by providing Curtis Packaging with a fleet of Hyundai 18L-7M LP Gas Counterbalance trucks and two STILL EXU 18s, made available through a Long Term Hire arrangement. The chosen trucks seamlessly combined user-friendliness with a minimal carbon footprint, aligning perfectly with Curtis Packaging’s stringent certification requirements.
Curtis Packaging boasts an impressive array of accolades that underpin their dedication to sustainability:
- World Land Trust, showcasing their devotion to conserving natural resources.
- B Corp Certification, a testament to their holistic commitment to ethical and social responsibility.
- BPIF Zero Foil 2 Landfill FSC Certification, signifying their devotion to responsible forest management and reduced environmental impact.
- ISO 14001, attesting to their meticulous adherence to stringent environmental management standards.
The partnership with Acclaim Handling has proven to be a resounding success for Curtis Packaging. The transition from their previous supplier was marked by elevated expectations, all of which were surpassed. The reliability of the procured trucks proved instrumental in their operations, while Kevin, their dedicated Account Manager at Acclaim, has consistently demonstrated his commitment to being a valuable resource, always just a phone call away, ready to address any queries or concerns.
In summary, the collaboration between Curtis Packaging and Acclaim Handling stands as a testament to the power of responsive solutions and loyal partnerships. As Curtis Packaging continues to forge ahead with its sustainability initiatives, it does so with a fleet of well-suited trucks and the assurance of Acclaim Handling’s unwavering support.
