About the employer

CBS Packaging began in 1995, when the company first registered the trading name of Corrugated Box Supplies. During the early years, the manufacturer operated from premises in Digbeth, Birmingham.

The company started small in the corrugated packaging industry and with limited manufacturing capabilities. 3 years later it relocated to a 33,000 sq foot site in Smethwick. Further impressive growth in the industry led for the installation of new machinery: S & S Diemaster, Simon 470 two-colour casemaker and an Andrew & Sutar Gluer.

CBS Packaging specialise in manufacturing bespoke corrugated packaging solutions to a wide range of industries. Whether you are looking for cardboard shipping boxes, promotional packaging, die cut packaging and other cardboard packaging products, all of our products offer protection and durability.
