Solidboard Boxes

The food sector, such as the meat, fish and produce industries need to carefully transport products to protect and maintain their quality. Solidboard is a speciality material used due to its strength, cost and excellent performance in extreme environments – such as refrigerators and freezers.

We have decades of experience in designing and manufacturing high quality, solidboard boxes for the food sector giving you a transport packaging solution which ensures your premium products are well protected during transit to arrive at their destination fresh and in good condition.

We have worked with McLaren Packaging now for a number of years for everything from corrugated whisky cases through to high end presentation boxes. The products they supply have always made the grade and continue to impress both us as the customer in terms of lead times and design assistance and the clients we have worldwide in customer satisfaction. Along with many thousands of cartons at a time, Wolfburn also has a frequent requirement for small numbers of high end items of packaging that McLaren can handle equally well in a timely fashion. Increasingly as the business grows, the need for a one stop shop has become apparent and with one supplier and one point of contact to work through, it has made a huge difference to the success of meeting orders in turbulent times. With a fast turnaround from the design phase through to delivery McLaren make the grade.”
