On World Quality Day, 2020, we are proud to celebrate 30 years of partnership with BSI for Quality and Excellence.

This year, Essentra Packaging celebrates 30 years of partnership with BSI, the business improvement company. This union has supported Essentra Packaging’s commitment to excellence through the implementation and certification of management system standards.


About the partnership

The relationship between Essentra Packaging and BSI started initially with a focus on Quality within the packaging division in Bangor - UK, and has since grown to include all global packaging sites. The partnership has expanded beyond Quality Management, to include Energy Management, Health and Safety, Sustainability and Information Security. 

The global relationship with BSI and Essentra Packaging led to BSI recognizing Essentra Packaging as a 'Partner in Excellence' in 2017. This approach builds on the common goal for Excellence and has supported Essentra Packaging in meeting objectives based on client focus, and driving consistency through operational best practices.
