Greenlight Packaging opens new European distribution centre

Cardiff-based protective packaging manufacturer Greenlight Packaging has opened its first distribution centre in the Netherlands. The new hub is set to simplify trade and bolster the company’s presence in the continental European market. 
“Our new EU-based hub guaranties faster delivery times, eliminates Brexit-related paperwork and gives even closer support to our distribution partners in continental Europe,” said the CEO of Greenlight, Karl Yeo.
Located in Rotterdam, the distribution centre delivers Greenlight’s proprietary air cushion systems and film across all of continental Europe.
Greenlight Packaging is the only provider of UK manufactured air cushion systems in Europe. “The opening of our new European Hub is an important step in increasing the footprint for our high-quality British manufactured packaging systems in the region,“ added Yeo.
The expansion comes following years of growth for the environmental packaging producer. In 2020, Greenlight’s overall sales grew by over 38% versus 2019, with exports being the largest contributor, growing by over 54%. This was largely due to the continued success of Opus™ air cushion systems and increased demand for their environmental films.
Greenlight is an award-winning international packaging manufacturer. The South Wales based team specialises in the development of high-performance, environmentally positive void fill and cushioning products. Greenlight’s global distributor network and client base span the UK and Europe, North America, South America and Asia/Pacific.
