Yorkshire Packaging Systems (YPS), the UK leaders in flexible wrapping solutions, are embarking on a new and exciting chapter as they open a state-of-the-art HQ in Brighouse, West Yorkshire.
Following a sustained period of growth for the business over the last five years, the acquisition of the 30,000sq feet premises in Brighouse will take Yorkshire Packaging’s total occupied territory to 50,000sq feet as the firm have decided against relinquishing their existing site at Dewsbury. ‘The key benefit of becoming a two-site operation is the capacity for greater stock holding’, says Glyn Johnson, YPS M.D. ‘Our sales have doubled in the last three years so space for more stock is critical to allow us to fulfil more customer orders without extending our short lead times.’
YPS report that the newly renovated site in Brighouse incorporates a modern showroom and demo centre, bright contemporary offices and meeting rooms, an expansive warehouse and a spacious workshop with a fitted floor-to-ceiling storeroom. A sweeping mezzanine floor has also been installed to overlook the demo centre, offering customers a 360° view of the impressive wrapping machinery systems on display. Keen to unveil the new space, as well as an exciting corporate rebrand, the company plan to host a ribbon cutting ceremony and opening day as soon as COVID restrictions will allow. The official launch day for the new site took place on the 1st March 2021.
