A Glossop manufacturer has captured the attention of the prime minister after achieving a world first in packaging.

Glossop Cartons, based in Padfield, was the first to commission, and the UK’s first to install a Highcon Euclid, a state-of-the-art cutting and creasing machine, last month.

High Peak MP Andrew Bingham spoke of the firm’s coup to David Cameron during prime minister’s question time.

Jacky Sidebottom, director of Glossop Cartons, said: “Over the last four years, we have invested over £4 million in new machines to ensure that we remain one of the leading quality suppliers in the industry.

“The investment in the Highcon Euclid fully supports the ethos of Glossop Cartons to look to technological innovations within the industry to benefit our customers and to strengthen our offer in the market.”
