A Memorable Monday for Samuel Grant Packaging
Samuel Grant Packaging were delighted to receive the Queen's Award for Innovation, officially presented to them on Monday 15th October at their Sheffield Branch.

Having heard in April that they were to receive the award, two of the team were previously invited to Buckingham Palace to a reception hosted by HRH Prince Charles, back in June. It was however on Monday 15th October that they had the opportunity to celebrate with their entire team.

Hosted by Managing Directors Andrew and Matthew Grant and Julia Allen, the Rt Hon Andrew Coombe, Lord Lieutenant of South Yorkshire, was welcomed to an event which was also attended by local MP, Angela Smith, as well as by representatives from the UK Warehousing Association, The Packaging and Processing Machinery Association, and the Sheffield Chamber of Commerce. The staff of Samuel Grant Packaging’s Sheffield Branch, as well as a select few from their North East and Leeds branches, were also in attendance.

The company were awarded the Queen’s Award for Innovation in honour of their revolutionary pallet wrapping system, the Samson Nano, which shook up the pallet wrapping industry with its fixed price-per-wrapped-pallet costing and inbuilt internet-linked reporting software.

Speaking about the award Julia Allen, Managing Director of Samuel Grant Sheffield, said, “It was a huge honour for two of us to go to London earlier in the year, but to celebrate the award with all those who contributed to make it happen is way more special. We are a strong family-led team at Samuel Grant Packaging, and this accolade is a source of extreme pride for everyone involved.”
