The drivers for the and benefits of obtaining FSC certification in the packaging industry

Firstly many thanks to Chris Clarke for providing this case study on FSC certification in the packaging industry.

Springpack Limited

Established over 45 years ago, Springpack is a protective packaging and eco-friendly packaging supplier. Based in Worcester, we have seen rapid growth in recent years, and are now based in a purpose-built 53,000 sq.ft warehouse and office facility.

We now employ over 50 colleagues, covering Sales, Marketing, Warehousing & Facilities, Customer Service, Purchasing, and Accounts.

What drove you to obtain FSC Certification?

Here at Springpack, we are very conscious of our environmental impact. We wanted to ensure we aligned our product range accordingly.

By obtaining FSC Chain of Custody, we have greater control over the supplier we use for items. Also a better understanding of the journey the product has been on.

What attracted you to use Interface for your Certification?

Initially the Interface price point was a key factor in choosing them. In addition to this, the level of service we received before, during, and after, has certainly made me realise it was the right choice!

How have you found the process with Interface?

Using Interface was really simple. From initial discussion through to pricing and also mapping out the relevant timelines for gaining the certification, everything ran smoothly. It really was straightforward.

In addition, we were even given a list of consultants to work with to help us gain the certification.

What benefits do you feel certification brings to your business?

Put simply, it makes us stronger. We work with some internationally recognised brand names, and having such certification shows we practice what we preach.

We also hold a series of ISO certificates, and we are looking at further green initiatives and accreditations in 2022.
