Woodway UK are a leading independent supplier of packaging materials with over 30 years’ experience in the industry. Their team are experts in the packaging markets including ecommerce, 3PLs, manufacturing and retail. They offer a collaborative and consultative approach to their customers setting them apart from a pure sales driven approach. In addition to their just in time service, drawing from a large range of standard and bespoke stocked items, Woodway UK also have a dedicated Technical Services Team to audit and re-engineer customers packaging processes. They also have an in house manufacturing facility for producing short runs of corrugated products with a fast turnaround. Woodway’s Managing Director, Martin Inwood, says, “We needed a new system because our current one no longer supports the fast changing dynamic of the business. Abaca are well known to us as many of our suppliers use their software.” Abaca’s Managing Director, Alan Cartwright, adds, “Traditionally we are known for providing solutions for corrugated manufacturing plants but we also have a number of customers who are distributors of both packaging and non-packaging materials. We have been working closely with a few existing distributors recently to develop our system in line with their requirements and we see Woodway UK as a valuable addition to this process.”
