FC Cartons, no longer boxed in!

FC Cartons provide a finishing service for packaging manufacturers throughout the UK and Europe.

The business has been going 16 years, has achieved a £3 million turnover and currently employs 40 people.

The FC Cartons team knew that the business had the potential to grow but they needed larger premises. They were constantly juggling production workflow and occasionally having to turn work away because of a lack of capacity.

Finance Director, Debra Woodyatt said: “We approached Collaborate because we needed to move premises. Collaborate has helped us with the use of a grant to refit the new unit and supported us with building the infrastructure, to put in a production area, offices and staff facilities.”
