One of TRW’s manufacturing facilities in the UK required protective packaging for their brake calliper systems…


The Boxability Solution

The main problem to overcome was how to design heavy-duty packaging which would also offer an economical advantage for transporting the TRW brake calliper components.

From the initial review, through to technical advice, design, development, fabrication and full laboratory performance testing, Boxability used their experience and expertise to successfully design a packaging solution.

Boxability-designed and produced heavy-duty packaging is now fully protecting the client’s product en route to destinations worldwide.
