What We Do
DEVELOPMENT & design
Whether you know what you want or just have an idea, we can provide creative inspiration, organise ideas and share our knowledge. We carry out a full assessment of feasibility and cost-effectiveness to ensure a productive start and that your packaging is fit for purpose. Careful planning is key in finding the right solution for you.
We oversee all elements of the supply chain from the initial concept and brief to final delivery. We ensure the supply chain is operating as efficiently as possible and generating the highest level of customer satisfaction at the lowest cost. Through our relationships with several specialised and highly certified factories, Allied International should be your first choice for complete solution packaging and product sourcing.
sampling and pricing
We work with you to develop each project with white samples, pre-production samples, continuously testing and evaluating. As a result of our strategic partnerships with factories and our long track record we can secure competitive pricing and we continually work hard to push them down without compromising on quality. In addition we are exclusively retained by a number of speciality factories.
Quality control is essential in the production of a high quality product and we ensure continuous quality controls and matching to approved samples. The state of the art and sophisticated printing and finishing techniques available at the factories we use along with their hand finishing expertise and our independent quality control systems means that you get a unique custom made and first class quality product.
The difference between a great concept and a spectacularly finished product is down to Project Management. We will plan and execute the production process with a high level of attention to detail. With our knowledge we give customers what they require, take the stress and fear out of doing business with the Far East and save you money and time in the process.
We pride ourselves on long-standing and positive relationships with our suppliers, who are all committed to our Ethical Trading Policy. This stipulates minimum standards for employment rights, working conditions and pay. Progress is monitored by regular visits and audits carried out by independent external auditors. We work with ISO, BRC and FSC certified factories to ensure a consistent level of quality.
We endeavour to adopt a sustainable approach to new product development by embedding our ethos within the sourcing of key raw materials and commodities and promoting and rewardarding sustainable behaviour within our supply base. This involves increased use of life cycle inventory and life cycle assessment to help guide the use of packaging which reduces the environmental impact and ecological footprint.
