From its state-of-the-art, 200,000 sq ft warehouse and factory buildings just off the M5 in Tipton, West Midlands, Conway Packing Services Ltd provides a bespoke packaging, design, manufacturing and packing service for clients throughout the United Kingdom and beyond. 

Using the latest technology and employing highly skilled craftsmen, Conway acts as an extension to your manufacturing operations, carrying out all packing tasks to the very highest standards. 

We can offer a single lift capacity of 48 tonnes (ideal for engineering, power and motor industry services), and we have several climate controlled facilities for clients whose products are sensitive to temperature or humidity. We also have static-free packing and storage zones for electrically sensitive items. 

As a company we have more than 20 years of experience in the packing and freight forwarding business: collectively, the managers who run Conway have in excess of 200. Our services are endorsed by a variety of third-party organisations and are certified by the Ministry of Defence (DR14) and B.V.Q.I (BS EN ISO 9001:2008).

More information on our services can be found in the sections below and on the Conway Packing Services website. 

Consultancy & Design

The expertise of our design staff (who are proficient in Auto CAD and approved to DR14 by the MOD), combined with the vast packing experience of our technical staff, allows Conway to offer an unrivalled packing consultancy and design service. We maintain and continuously update an extensive library of technical specifications, including Military Defence Standards and British Standards. 

Conway design staff work in close cooperation with client representatives, communicating with them throughout the design and development process to ensure all their requirements are met and that their expectations are fully reconciled with the practicalities of the packing industry.

Defence Packing

Packing for the defence industry is our speciality. In fact, Conway has held direct Enabling Arrangement Contracts with the MOD and its contracted suppliers for more than 20 years. To ensure the requirements of this demanding sector are fully met, Conway has introduced ISO 2859 inspection procedures on top of its ISO 9001:2008 quality management system. We are committed to providing a first class packing service, and this is reflected in the accreditation certification we have received from the Ministry of Defence (DR14) and B.V.Q.I.

In House Steel Fabrications

To ensure absolute protection of our clients’ products, and to comply with the high specification requirements of certain contracts, Conway manufactures steel cradles, containers, sub-frames and lifting beams in house. We have our own fabrication section where we produce custom packing equipment using materials that meet the most exacting shock and vibration test standards. Conway is the only company in the UK packing industry with this facility, which means we are the only packing contractor that can guarantee the quality and integrity of its materials.

  • 10 “C” (Export Trade) – Similar to the requirements of level “A”, but with more emphasis on the package’s ability to withstand aspects of mechanical handling and to be sent via air freight, etc. 
  • 07 “P” (Military) – The basic level of military packing, usually including a polyethylene outer barrier. 
  • 06 “N” (Military) – The mid-level military packing standard - ranges from items packed in fibreboard cartons through to goods in timber cases.
