A BOMADERRY business has gone from bust to boom, recently notching up a decade of successful trading.
In 2004 Sheldon Pallets in Bomaderry closed, only to have three men from Queensland restart and rebadge the business as Box-Built and later Integra Packaging.
The business has gone from boxes and pallets to hybrid materials, large-scale infrastructure and international alliances.
The company claims world’s best practice in packaging – but not just any packaging. It specialises in the tough to wrap items. If it is too big to fit in a box it’s the sort of job the company enjoys.
The local branch of the company gained international exposure when it was called on to shrink-wrap the Royal Australian Navy’s Super Seasprite helicopters.
Group operations manager
Bruce McBride remembered the staff in 2004 shared a common goal to rebuild and make the business better.
“It was a pleasure to start with such a great bunch of people,” he said.
“I enjoyed the support of all six guys who were a vital part of forming the company which stands today.
“I grew with these guys after being made general manager and am thankful for the skills I learnt and acquired along the way.
“It was also great to see the growth in staff. After a six-year break away to further my skills I have returned to the company as group operations manager only to find many of the same staff here. That is a credit to them and management today,” he said.
