Clifton Packaging Group
2015 / 2016 has been another incredible year for the Clifton Packaging Group with the company ending the year with over £18,500,000 in turnover. That's a 30% increase on the previous year. It took the firm 33 years to grow the group to hit £10,000,000 turnover but with a clear strategy now firmly in place Clifton has no doubt that it will achieve its ambitions and grow to become a £25 – £30,000,000 turnover company by 2018. Net profit also increased by 29% to £2,500,000 with reserves increasing by 11%. The firm’s headcount increased to 75 to support growth and is, in turn, supported by an in-house training programe tailored to support each member of staff.
Key developments this year include being approached by SAB Miller to work on a new project while its single biggest investment this year was in the Uteco Crystal, eight colour flexo CI presses that print at a speed of 600 meters per minute and has superseded many of its competitors.
