Europe is one of the most important strategic markets of Aopack where we see huge potential and prospects, therefore we have been attaching great importance to developing and promotion in this area over the years, and achieved great significant results through tireless efforts.

Great success depends on our high-quality product, thoughtful service, and also generous support from our excellent cooperators. Today we would like to introduce you to our outstanding partners for the UK and Ireland GTS (Europe) Ltd.

Establish initial cooperation with GTS

In 2019 After looking at many machines and knowing exactly what he wanted, Paul Herson, product manager of GTS Europe identified Aopack as the machine that would fit perfectly into their portfolio.

David Williams, the Managing Director at GTS, traveled to China and visited our factory, to see the machine running. The machine with its lead edge auto feeder, user-friendly operating system was exactly what was wanted by the GTS team, they felt quite satisfied, and decided to begin our cooperation then.

In the same year, Anna Qin and Hongtao Guan visited the UK, attending an exhibition, where GTS had a stand and showed the machine to potential customers.

Following the exhibition, they visited a customer’s factory for installation and machine operation training. Working with GTS, Anna and Hongtao were able to discuss the exact requirements of this market and in this process, the two companies got to know each other more, laying a good foundation for the following cooperation between GTS and Aopack.

Culmination Of Our Collaboration With Great Achievements

 With both sides cooperating with tactical understanding everything went smoothly, as a result, our box-making machines quickly gained a place in the UK market. Later the epidemic broke out, and with joint efforts and continuous support for each other, we finally overcame the adversity of the general environment.

Through this particular experience, our partnership gained then further improved. What’s more, the recognition of our brand has gradually blossomed in the market, not only in the UK, but also in other European countries, such as Poland, Lithuania, Austria and so on.

Second installation of GTS Boxstar at Pal-Pak Corrugated Ltd Widnes.

 As Paul Herson posted on his social medium “Following the first installation in January 2021 Pal-Pak have had their second installed.

Asking for a comment from James Tobin the companies production manager he told me “We’ve been running the first machine for over a year without a problem and have even had our own programs added to it.

We needed another reliable machine to replace another of this type of box maker we had and had no hesitation in going for another Boxstar, its 45 second set up and proper lead edge feeder makes life so much easier”.

 Manufactured by our partners Aopack these really are a great addition to the GTS short run box making division.”

The re-orders from customers shows their the recognition of our machines, also reflects that our products could provide benefits to them. We are glad to see this, and hope we could bring profit and values to more and more clients.
