“The beauty about the product is that it’s suitable for companies of all shapes and sizes,” . “That includes gym equipment, through to engineering, electric wholesalers and the food and drink sector to name a few.
And for Jim and his team, eco-friendly and more sustainable packaging is an area which the business continues to see increased demand from its clients.
“With the new machine we are looking towards the Kraft paper, which is fully biodegradable and recyclable. It does have a price but customers are happy to pay the extra money for the green credentials.”
Demand for the new tape products has already been very strong. The company is working with some well-known brands and businesses – right across Northern Ireland.
That includes businesses such as Donnelly Group, Trillick, Eglish Building Supplies, Sliced Meals, Traynors and Mash Direct.
For companies, using this tape on their product will boost the visibility for customers, and it’s also very useful from a track-and-track perspective – it’s a key marketing tool for promotion.”
JMC Packaging, which operates its main base in Craigavon, is now one of Northern Ireland’s leading distributors of both packaging machinery and materials and is investing in both its operations and people, as it expands its reach into new markets.
