Dan the Business
Dan Packaging was born in 2010 when Steve Holt decided to take the plunge into self employment after 20 years of working in the packaging industry for companies such as Record packaging and Minipack Torre.
With a solid back ground in engineering and sales Steve identified a gap in the market that he was sure could be filled by a company that was able to offer a personnel no nonsense approach to the many packaging and shrink wrapping problems that new and established companies face on a day to day basis and also a packaging company that would serve customers with solutions that they may not find from the larger players in the packaging industry. Dan can provide sealing and shrinkwrapping solutions that can involve a simple heat sealer, basic chamber shrink wrap machine or right through to a fully automatic shrinkwrapping machine from Minipack Torre. Dan packaging has and still is growing steadily using the core values that the business was founded on.
Drawing on contacts made over many years I was able to put together a range of equipment and materials that enable us to now become a one stop shop for small and large businesses alike. The only way we could do this was by using suppliers and equipment we had the upmost faith in.
We can now supply the complete range of machines that includes Fully Automatic L Sealers that are produced by Minipack Torre we also have the complete range of chamber shrink wrapping machines available to purchase on line with or without engineer installation.
Our customers range from one of the leading producers of paper-based packaging in the world, and also supplying a solution to one of the biggest car part manufactures in the up right down to some of the country’s leading artisan food producers and various other cottage industries. As an idea of what we can do our strangest project was for a Christmas special with the country’s oldest soap's on TV. This involved making over 100 fake floating Turkey’s and packaging them too look like the real thing!,the at the other end of the spectrum we developed a system to make a bag for a component used in the assembly in one of the countries best selling car's,this saved the supply thousands of pounds and a great deal of time.
Below is just a small snippet of what our customers say.
Ranjit Rhall ....With the experience that Steve has he soon identified a more efficient process for us that has enabled us to cut costs and increase efficency.The solution he presented us with is working very well and has caused a great deal of interest within our European production facilities. Serving the motor manufacturers around Europe. I would not hesitate to call with any packaging related questions however big or small.
Kelly ....I just wanted to drop a quick line to say how pleased I was with the telephone service I received today. I called with a query regarding PVC shrink film and a very helpful man guided me through the details and offered advice. It is rare to receive such good service, particularly as I was clearly not going to be placing a large order. I have decided on this occasion that the film is not right for my needs right now. However, the service was so helpful that when I do look to buy I will certainly be returning as a customer. Thank you once again. .
Lorraine (Elevations Exhibitions)......“After some research, we purchased a tension and crimper set from Dan Packaging. We are extremely pleased with the product and also the excellent customer service that we received from them. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this company.”
