Carton Edge are your manufacturing partner, taking pride in exceptional standards of innovation, service and experience.

We were the first UK finishing house to hold full BRC-IOP Hygiene accreditation, necessary for the manufacture of food safe packaging, operated in conjunction with ISO 9001-2000, leading innovative production and our own Continuous Improvement Policy.

This should make Carton Edge your first choice for Food Safe Quality Finishing.

How to find us

Computer Process Control

By installing a Shuttleworth MIS System, Carton Edge can monitor all operations, control costs and direct labour between machines so as to meet your expectations for quality, budget and deadlines.


Our in-house capabilities cover an extensive range of packaging material, including coated boards and high-density corrugated and plastics. We are happy to advise the various finishing applications with you suited to your requirements.

Die Cutting & Creasing

Printers new to carton manufacture can liaise with us to ensure the cartons are designed to minimise board consumption while offering optimum fit for purpose.


We have four machines offering a breadth of styles including, but not limited to:

Straight line

Multi point


Hot melt Applications

PUR plastic

Four corner and six corner

Nested trays

Wallets and folders

Hand-finished and complex/bespoke

Window Patching

We have two machines that can apply flexible (polyester, acetate or preferred material) windows and bags from a reel to a carton.

Pick & Place Window

Recent investment has doubled our Pick & Place capacity for applying rigid windows and other applications.

Nested Trays

These ready erected packs have tapered sides so as to nest into each other. Examples would be clamshell "burger boxes", chip scoops or carton trays.

Labelling and Over-Labelling

Over labelling can apply promotional text or rectification of cartons that require amendment. Labelling can be applied to clear plastic cartons to provide that personal touch to your packaging product.

Carton Edging

Yes, this is from where we originated our Name! For food preparation products, foil and cling film, the edging process applies a serrated edge to your printed carton. This finishing technique can be coupled with our gluing facility to complete your packaging product.
