Both companies are passionate about creating cost-effective, innovative and greener operations during their long-term collaboration, utilising the Queen’s Award-winning Samson Nano, alongside Braiform’s world-first closed loop hanger solution.

In 2018, Braiform installed a Samson Nano machine and over 11 months have subsequently saved 4.8 tonnes in wrap consumption, taking their CO2 emission savings to 29 tonnes by reducing waste and increasing efficiency. Please visit our case study  to read more about their collaboration.

“It’s a great recognition for the collaboration of both our Yorkshire-based businesses,” said Julia Allen, Managing Director of Samuel Grant Sheffield.

“Working together to create a greener, safer, pallet wrapping solution for Braiform, and also achieving a huge reduction in CO2. We are very proud to be included in their ‘the best of the best’ accolade.”

The team are all very proud and are looking forward to the award ceremony celebrations in London on 5th November.  Fingers crossed!
