Case Study #1

When Tim Holland of Certiforms Limited decided to outsource the manufacture of the polythene film required to produce their bespoke range of wicketed bags for bakery and food produce point of sale packaging he knew that he needed a supplier that was capable of developing a new range of films to meet stringent requirements for strength, gloss and self seal properties.


Additionally, the supplier had to be able to react quickly to both detail changes in the film design and produce commercial quantities under tight deadlines to enable Certiforms to meet their customers JIT requirements.

Tim’s search led him to Aintree Plastics where he was able to discuss his requirements with Steve Baylis our Works Director. As a result of these discussions Steve sourced a prototype polymer that was used to create a range of bespoke films to meet Certiforms requirements.

As well as developing new blends in partnership with Certiforms, Aintree Plastics has also taken over production of other technical films for them. 

One of the advantages Tim finds in dealing with Aintree Plastics is that whilst they are large enough to meet his technical requirements, they have a uniquely flexible approach to both refining existing film products and developing new products.  This adaptability to respond to changing customer needs is also reflected in Aintree Plastics ability to meet the short leadtimes necessary in today’s demanding packaging market.
