The Schumacher Packaging Group, Ebersdorf near Coburg, took over packaging manufacturer Jaffabox Ltd based in Birmingham, England. In terms of technology, Jaffabox is fully up to speed and offers a varied selection of packaging solutions from corrugated board produced in-house – from shipping boxes to shelf-ready packaging all the way to tailored design services for individual customer requirements.
With the takeover of Jaffabox, Schumacher Packaging is further expanding its presence on the European market. Particularly internationally active customers of the packaging expert with headquarters in Ebersdorf, Germany, will reap the benefits in terms oflogistics. A fair few of them have sites in the UK themselves. For these customers, Schumacher Packaging can now offer a reliable partner in the country – particularly in times of Brexit. In addition, they can rely on another strong partner in the group of companies who is set apart by high standards of technology and a marked focus on service.
Björn Schumacher, Managing Director of the Schumacher Packaging Group, emphasises: "Jaffabox offers immense potential which we will be able to perfectly fulfil together in our group of companies – to the benefit of all our customers." Customers of the English packaging manufacturer will also benefit from the merger. They now have access to the comprehensive product range and the full service offer of the international Schumacher Packaging Group. In all other regards, business will continue on a familiar path for Jaffabox customers, as the company will still be managed by the Amyes family.
