PACKFORCE: A PACKAGING SERVICE WITH A BIG HEART

Packforce has been providing reliable, cost-effective assembly and packaging services for more than 50 years.

But unlike other packaging services, Packforce has one difference – it provides employment and training for adults with cerebral palsy and other disabilities.

Packforce is a social enterprise under the Cerebral Palsy Alliance.

By choosing Packforce, you can change people’s lives.

With warehouses at Frenchs Forest and Wetherill Park in Sydney, Packforce is used by businesses throughout NSW.

STAEDTLER Australia, a leading international company that manufactures a range of stationery products, is one of its major clients.

Packforce assembles and packs an extensive range of blister carded products and other items for STAEDTLER Australia.

Packforce offers highly competitive rates and can provide cost effective ways to meet  production deadlines.

Its services include:

·       Packaging and Assembly

Packforce specialises in hand packing. It ensures products are ready – on time and on budget.

·       Mail House Fulfilment Services

Packforce provides full mailhouse services including bar coding, folding and insertion, magazine wrapping and Australia Post lodgement.

·       Product Rework

Packforce has the facilities to rework products, including repairing damaged stock, over stickering and re-packaging.

·       Warehousing and Storage

Packforce stores products at its warehouses and will complete orders and prepare finished products for dispatch.

Packforce can organise packaging of sample and promotional products, trade show and conference packs, shrink wrapping, point of sale displays and a broad range of other services.

Packforce works closely with its clients to understand the job at hand and client requirements.

The company prides itself on quality assurance and a rapid turnaround.

Packforce has moved away from the sheltered workshop model to an open, competitive operation where people with a disability worked alongside able-bodied people.

One staff member has been employed for 50 years and many others have been with the organisation for more than 20 years.

Most employees have cerebral palsy, a condition that affects one in every 500 people. Many are wheelchair dependent.

Cerebral palsy refers to a range of movement-related conditions diagnosed in childhood and involving one or both sides of the body. This may cause impaired mobility, muscle stiffness or weakness and/or abnormal or uncontrolled movements.

Around half of children with cerebral palsy have normal or high intelligence, and the degree of physical disability varies widely.

Packforce employees are highly motivated and dedicated to the task at hand.

If you’re a manufacturer with packaging needs – look no further than Packforce.
