DS Smith has won international recognition for design and innovation at the Worldstar Packaging Awards – run by the World Packaging Organisation, an international federation of national packaging institutes. A total of eight honours were awarded to DS Smith, including two to the Industrial Division for its production of a Cylinder Head Storage Pack and Engine Shipper. Tony Foster, Sector Director at DS Smith, said: “The Worldstar Awards are great recognition for the teams in the UK, who work tirelessly to develop ingenious packaging that protects products in transit and reduces cost and waste in the supply chain”. “The end result involves design innovation, creativity and awareness of the environmental impact of both the product and the process behind it.” Peter Foot, Marketing & Innovation Director at DS Smith, also emphasised how the innovative nature of their designs won over the judges. He said:  “Our customer had initially considered other forms of traditional packaging to transport both the car engines and cylinder heads, including plastics, steel and wooden containers. However they chose to go with DS Smith Packaging and Heavy Duty corrugated board due to our innovative design solutions to these challenging packaging requirements, and our track record of success in the automotive sector.” Details of DS Smith winners: • The Cylinder Head pack developed in DS Smith Packaging’s Oldbury facility provides open access for automated loading and unloading, while securely positioning the cylinder heads within the pack. The pack won plaudits because it has been designed to work as effectively as possible in warehouses and throughout the supply chain.
