INW: Our Packing Service

Packing Service

Having an innovative, market-leading product is only half the battle in the competitive nutrition and wellness sector.

The other critical components are professional packaging and reliable fulfilment, which are essential for getting your products on shelves and into customers’ hands.

INW’s extensive capabilities do just that, handling every aspect of preparing your vitamins, supplements, and nutritional products for commercial distribution.

Our spacious 541m2 packing hall operates 24 hours a day, 5 days a week, and can ramp up to 24/7 operations during peak periods to package up to 300,000 units per week across various packaging formats, including bottles (PET and glass), flat packs, and pouches to suit all your nutritional products.

Access to local print shops ensures a one-stop solution for custom labels, cartons, and other components tailored to your product line’s unique branding.

Robust machinery and automation

A cutting-edge packing machinery and automation technology system—including three shrink sleeve machines and two case sealers—gives us better packaging output capabilities than most global manufacturers.

A few highlights:

  • 1x 4 head counting machine.
  • 2x Automated cappers.
  • 3x Enercon induction sealers.

Throw in some automation and high throughput, and we offer savings on labour costs while maximising packaging precision, quality control, and speed to market.

Machinery lowdown
  • Twin-head filling/counting machines accurately fill containers like bottles or pouches with powdered supplements, vitamins, etc. The twin heads allow higher throughput.
  • 4-head counting machines count specific quantities of tablets, capsules, or other solid dose products to fill bottles/packages.
  • Automated cappers – Machines that automatically put caps/lids on filled bottles in production lines.
  • Enercon induction sealers – Use induction heating to seal the inner lid liners of bottles or jars after filling to ensure an airtight, tamper-evident seal.
  • Shrink sleeve machines – Apply shrink wrap labelling/sleeving around bottles, containers, or multi-packs to provide branding and tamper evidence.
  • Packleader label machines apply adhesive labels to bottles and containers.
  • Ladypack machines – Specialised equipment to shrink-wrap bottles individually after filling/labelling.
  • Shrink oven – An oven that uses heat to shrink and tightly conform shrink-wrap sleeves/labels around containers after application.
  • Semi-automatic powder machine – Fills semi-automatically containers like pouches, sachets or bottles with powder products.
  • Inline batcher – Automatically collates and batches filled/packaged products into larger boxes/cases for distribution.
  • Videojet batches – Use inkjet printing to directly print batch numbers, barcodes, dates, etc., on packaged products.

Scalable packaging for any production volume

Whether you are a small upstart brand looking to launch your first product line or an established enterprise brand rolling out new SKUs, INW has the capacity and flexibility to accommodate any packaging volume with over 1 million square feet of manufacturing space.

We can quickly scale up packaging operations in lockstep with your increasing production needs, and our multi-site footprint spanning the UK, US, and other regions also mitigates supply chain risks to maintain continuity.

The COVID-19 pandemic is a prime example of our supply chain’s strength. While other manufacturers closed up shop, we kept going to keep nutritional brands going and capitalise on more people spending time at home.
