CASE STUDIES

On this page you’ll be able to check out some of the projects we have been involved in. We’ve had some really interesting and unusual items we’ve been asked to ship over the years. Check out some of these below.

Packaging for Pipex

Pipex px® off-site manufacture advanced thermoplastic C.S.O. chambers on a regular basis, for many clients up and down the country, with R. West & Son constructing the shuttering around the chambers to allow for an immediate concrete pour around them.

Top Secret Packaging

2 packing crates have been manufactured and delivered to XFX, the electronic gaming company, in Daventry, East Midlands. Not being used for export, but a publicity event. I suppose you could say “all packed up with no where to go”.

Medical Equipment

An X-Ray machine and an anaesthetic machine, purchased by an Indian doctor, who is shipping them over to India, at his own expense. For use in some of the underprivileged regions of the area. We collected from Derriford Hospital last week and finished packing for shipment in a few days.

Vintage Trawler

A radio-controlled vintage trawler measuring 1800 x 300 x 920mm was privately sold to a collector in Sweden. R. West & Son were contracted to ensure a safe, final voyage!

Handle Sophie Carefully

Sophie is a Bronze resin sculpture, measuring 600 x 600 x 600mm. She was purchased from FoweyRiver Gallery, by an Australian family who fell in love with her and would like her sitting in their garden, back in Australia.

Sagittarius Sporting Goods

European Office Avmar House 12 Church Street Southport PR9 0QT Reference: Moving the factory machinery to Xiamen – China.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY

“Finding a local company who could manufacture packing cases to meet the recent ISPM15 timber packaging regulations for our aftersales department was high on our agenda. R. West & Son in Plymouth has successfully provided us with a reliable solution to this problem.”

GRANT HOOPER, HEAD OF MATERIALS & AFTERSALES, PRINCESS YACHTS INTERNATIONAL PLC

“When we made the decision to move our manufacturing facility to China, there were several issues that needed hands-on management. When it came to shipping the machinery and components, the R. West & Son team took full control of the move, from arranging the containers to the packaging and paperwork required to complete the move. This was one less headache to deal with. A good, all-round job and R. West & Son are thoroughly recommended to anyone else needing a similar service.”
