fc cartons all under one roof again!

‘The Hub’ is our new production facility three times the size of the old plant and eleven times larger than the original premises, Team fc will once again be under one roof, this investment will maximise the current efficiencies achievable whilst future proofing the business. Logistically it will offer vast improvements in the movement of goods around the plant, with plenty of room for expansion.

Before acquiring our new premises, we were constantly juggling production workflow to alleviate capacity issues - occasionally having to turn work away because of the lack of capacity to meet the growing demands of customers. Our new premises at Langham Park Industrial Estate in Castle Donington was a big investment, but the right business decision. Since having the additional space, capacity issues have disappeared and the storage capacity allows further added value by providing a stock holding service as and when required.

Job creation and succession planning are critical to the company’s growth and the extra space allows for the potential to create up to 20 new jobs over the next five years. Through grant funding and personal investment we have shown a commitment and demonstrated we provide the best service possible, we create jobs and continue to build a business that is robust and can deliver an ever-evolving capability offer to our clients.

The level of investment made in both plant and additional factory space is a testament to the faith in our team to grow the business and provide a level of customer service second to none. This commitment to innovation and future growth comes at a price, however, we’re confident that the investment will pay dividends for customers both in terms of improved lead times and the highest level of carton finishing.

Staying focused and continually reviewing customers’ needs is extremely important in a constantly evolving marketplace where innovation is central to growth. The management team at fc cartons has always invested in the next generation to ensure the business has a secure and successful future.
