Cartonage is a British company who design & manufacture cardboard folding cartons predominantly, but not exclusively, for the EU food industry.
Established in 1995 by an entrepreneurial constructional carton designer – Phil Webster, Cartonage remains a customer focused privately owned business where all the key shareholders still remain actively involved in the business today, this includes Phil’s son & his daughter. Initially operating from a site in Leeds the business was relocated to Dewsbury in 2007 to a facility that was ‘purpose built’ to meet the exacting standards of modern carton design & manufacture.
Cartonage has an additional associate folding carton business – KOJ Packaging Ltd based in a new location 5 miles from the current Cartonage factory.
KOJ has been owned by directors Andrew Eastham & Alan Pounder since 2004. In 2008, they, together with Phil Webster, established the current Cartonage/KOJ business. KOJ is a smaller ‘mirror image’ of the main Cartonage manufacturing site in terms of plant & capability, and forms a key part of the business risk management strategy in terms of contingency for continuity of supply.
The company is proud of its heritage & continues to forge long standing relationships with a valued & broad customer base which includes UK food retailers.
