We are happy to report the completion of a new testing laboratory at our Desborough site. The Laboratory has been fitted out with state of the art testing equipment as well as being built to meet the exacting standards of ISO 187: 1990 which stipulates the correct temperature and humidity for box and paper testing.
Commercial Director Kevin Woodward comments: “With the development of new technology papers in recent years it is important that we can test the paper that we buy and the products that we produce to ensure that our customers are supplied with products that give the best optimal performance in todays FMCG market. We know that our customers look to us to be innovative and supply them a product that performs every time without being over specified.”
The new laboratory will enable not only the standard range of box and paper testing but allow Rigid to share the results where necessary with the customer through graphical outputs from testing as well as video clips. This allows different products to be compared to find the optimal design to meet the customer’s requirements.
