A Barnstaple business’s innovative packaging products have earned them places on the shortlists of two national industry awards.

Atlas Packaging has reached the final four in the UK Packaging Awards for best small to medium enterprise.

It is also a finalist in the FlexoTech International Print Awards for best promotional print. The nomination is for a bottle pack created with specialist use of metallic and UV ink.

Atlas managing director Jason Sharman said: “These award nominations reflect the hard work put in by everyone in the company.

“We talk a lot about teamwork and this really does show what can be achieved when you have a great team working closely together.”

Both ceremonies take place in London, with the FlexoTech International Print Awards on October 10, and the UK Packaging Awards on October 30.

The UK Packaging Awards covers the entire packaging industry not just corrugated cardboard products produced by the Barnstaple firm, which recently reinvested £1.75m for new production equipment.
