Local firm rapt with wrapping success

PHOENIX RISES: The company that shrink-wrapped 10 Super Seasprite helicopters in 2008 and eight Sea King helicopters in March this year, recently marked a decade in business after rising from the ashes.

PHOENIX RISES: The company that shrink-wrapped 10 Super Seasprite helicopters in 2008 and eight Sea King helicopters in March this year, recently marked a decade in business after rising from the ashes.

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.
