CBS Packaging was founded in 1996, and has grown from a small unit in the centre of Birmingham to its current 160,000 sq ft building on a five acre site in West Bromwich, West Midlands.  The company specialises in manufacturing cardboard boxes in various quantities and in a variety of styles and sizes using different grades/colours of corrugated board: these include Standard, Die-cut, Display Unit, Four-Point Glued, Display Tray, Crash-Lock and Shelf Ready options.  Fefco style boxes with integral parts, either self-locking, glued or stitched, plain or printed, are also capable of being produced.

The recently installed VEGA Altair 200 is said to be ‘perfect’ for the company as it has provided added flexibility and quality to the production processes.  It now allows CBS to offer crash lock and corner blanks up to two metres wide in flute grades E, B, C and double wall.  The company is also able to undertake six-point gluing orders.  With running speeds of up to 200 metres per minute and five squaring sections, the Altair 200 folder gluer provides the accuracy, quality and speed required to move the company forward and better address the needs of its customers.

CBS Packaging’s customer base is nationwide and covers a wide variety of industry sectors.  The company has its own delivery vehicles to ensure that deadlines are kept, even of the urgent ‘last minute’ type.   Finished products are always palletised and strapped ensuring that that they arrive at the customer’s premises in perfect condition.  Any special palletising instructions or the requirement for the products to be shrink-wrapped instead can also be catered for.

Mr Jitha Singh, Managing Director of CBS Packaging, said that he is delighted with the performance of the VEGA Altair 200 and the ease of routine maintenance, thereby vindicating the decision of this acquisition. The machine has demonstrated its flexibility in producing single and double wall boxes up to 2 m in width.

CBS Packaging is committed to quality and service, and is recognised within the industry as providing value for money. The installation of the VEGA Altair 200 corrugated gluer is another sign that the company intends to keep moving forward and maintain this reputation by ensuring that with the even greater accuracy, quality and speed now provided it is better addressing the needs of customers.
