Our people are reliable. We answer the phone when you ring us, we get back to you when we say we will, we keep you updated throughout the process and we deliver on-brief, on-budget and on-time.
Our products are reliable. Our customers buy from us because they have something of value that needs to be protected, stored or transported. Or, sometimes all three. Our products help businesses save money by minimising damage, breakages or wastage, they help keep components clean and tidy, as well as increasing stock control efficiency.
”I recommend your products to colleagues and contacts of mine all the time to try to make up for the fact that we don’t buy as many from you as we did from our previous supplier because they are so reliable, and last and last and last!”
Because we’ve been around for over 50 years, we’ve solved a lot of packaging and handling challenges for a wide range of customers.
With that amount of experience it is very likely that we’ll be able to solve any packaging and handling requirements that you many have.
We know exactly what questions to ask to fully understand the brief – and from experience, we’re not only keen to see product samples or drawings we are also very keen on site visits.
”The best solutions are identified by working with experienced suppliers on site who quickly understand what we do, how we do and what we need by knowing what to look for and what to ask.”
Our products aren’t just great value for money, they also reduce costs.
Being able to transport, store and protect high value components efficiently, means you save money by minimising the cost of replacing parts that get damaged or broken, as well the indirect costs such as labour cost of sorting out issues.
Being able to store parts efficiently improves stock control and stock handling saving time and money.
”There were instances of components getting damaged due to inadequate storage protection. On one occasion, our records showed that a part needed for a last minute order was in stock, so we confirmed a delivery time to our customer only to find the part was damaged. This delayed delivery by two weeks! Now that we use Columbus component damage during storage and handling is a thing of the past.”
Simply give us:
- a sample or drawing
- the item weight
- the required batch size
and we’ll provide you with examples of suitable solutions.
If you need something bespoke, we’ll design it and produce it for you.
Unlike many of our competitors we can also provide small quantities which means you only need to buy exactly what you need.
We’ll always keep you informed every step of the way so you can plan systems, process and logistics in advance.
”We sent Columbus an outline brief, they turned up to develop an idea with our team, we received a prototype a week later and our packaging solutions a week after that – it was that easy!”
