Kite Packaging was founded from scratch in 2001 with a unique vision - to be the premier packaging suppliers in the UK with a philosophy of employee-ownership.
At Kite we believe that “customer satisfaction matters so much more when you own the business”, and so, from the moment Kite Packaging was founded, we established it as an employee owned business so that every single employee could share in the benefits that come from giving great customer service.
Kite Packaging’s branch in Coventry is a fully owned site and home to Midlands Key Accounts, Kite Online, Telesales, Customer Service, IT, HR, Admin. Kite Environmental Solutions also operates from here, overseen by Managing Partner Andy Fay. For Key Accounts, the Coventry branch services businesses across the Midlands region in Birmingham, Nottingham, Northampton, Leicester, Rugby and much more. The branch, which occupies 179,000 sq. ft of space in the Tile Hill area of historic Coventry, a city renowned for innovation and industry, has two impressive Warehouse spaces which service Midlands and Kite Online (website) customers.
The Midlands operation is overseen by Gavin Ashe – Managing Partner for Kite Packaging Midlands, as well as Managing Partner Warren Powell who looks after Midlands Key Accounts and Jake Kirk – Managing Partner for Kite’s Online operation, and has maintained consistent growth since the business moved in to the building in 2007. The central location makes for a perfect location to operate the e-commerce business, with 60% of the UK population just 3 hours away and 40% just 2 hours away.
