We are so proud to be from Yorkshire we even included it in our name! As well as working with some of the big names in shrink wrapping including Hugo Beck, Ulma Packaging and Tosa, a large proportion of our shrink wrap machines are lovingly made in Yorkshire by our team of engineers.
Designed and manufactured at our Dewsbury based headquarters we have the facility to not only supply stock machines but also to create custom made, bespoke shrink wrappers designed to suit individual customers requirements and completely utilise factory floor space. It makes us burst with pride to say that we are the ONLY company in the UK to be able to offer this in the market.
At Yorkshire Packaging Systems we feel it is important to give back to the local community that we are so proud to be a part of. We have many schemes which help to provide funds in our local area. We have been supporting Yorkshire based “Sapphire Supremes” majorette troupe with their fundraising by introducing a snack-box into the office with all proceeds going directly to the “Sapphire Supremes” with this money they are able to purchase new dresses, battons, pom poms and also put money towards their troupe trips.
We also have been the official kit sponsors for both Gateways School in Harewood, Leeds for their South African netball tour and also for “Sisters” netball team who play in the Halifax Netball League. Go girls!
In addition to this we held a charity ball in July 2015 to raise money for “Overgate Hospice” based in Halifax and “Forget Me Not” Childrens Hospice based in Huddersfield. Our target was to raise a total of £15,000 and split this between the two charities and we were completely overwhelmed and overjoyed at the support we received meaning that we doubled this target and raised a total of £30,000 to be split between these two fantastic causes!
We also donate to various other charities and good causes in our local area throughout the year as often as we can.
