Significant financial investment secures future for packaging manufacturer

A significant financial investment in infrastructure by The Peter Marsh Group, a major supplier of paper sacks and corrugated boxes to the agricultural industry and one of Liverpool’s longest established family owned businesses, will help to secure the future of the business and its employees for generations to come.

Next month the company will commence with a £2 million refurbishment of its Bootle facilities where it has been based since 1861. The investment is the largest in the company’s 180 year history and will significantly improve the manufacturing process by making it more efficient and cost effective, and to account for a global drive to eliminate single use plastic from the supply chain.

“With the worldwide movement to eliminate single use plastic products we have experienced a dramatic rise in demand for environmentally friendly alternatives, such as paper and corrugated products, that are 100% recyclable,” says CEO Peter Marsh. “With our new state-of-the art facilities in place we will continue to deliver a high quality service to our long-standing and loyal customers.”

The Peter Marsh Group has over 70 employees, with many being 3rdand 4thgeneration, and some even having worked for the company for over 40 years.

“Our workforce is our most important asset – they are key to our longstanding success in the packaging industry and with this investment, we will secure the future of the business and our workforce,” says Mr Marsh.
