MAKING PACKING CASES & PACKING CRATES SINCE 1910
Here at R. West & Son, we’re expert packing case and packing crate makers. With decades of experience in designing and manufacturing specialist timber packing cases, there’s no job too large or small for our team. We specialise in creating bespoke timber packaging to help you to protect and safely transport valuable items and goods.
We manufacture wooden our packing cases to your exact specifications and are happy to advise on the most suitable format for your needs. From case design to construction, we’ll ensure the cases we produce take your requirements into account every step of the way.
TIMBER PACKING CRATES & CASES
Our packing cases are our core product and the one most frequently chosen by our customers. Offering comprehensive protection for goods, thanks to their enclosed and sealed design; our wooden packing cases are a great option for exporting goods overseas or across the UK.
Constructed with a timber base and frame, the sides are a strong sheet material, designed for durability, with the option of adding a protective lining. We can manufacture packing cases in any size you require, to meet the product’s needs and can supply them flat-packed (for you to assemble around the load) or fully assembled with a screwed lid (for you to load). Our cases can be stacked, to help maximise valuable shipping space.
We can also manufacture packing crates, with slatted sides and a solid top and base. This design offers all-round physical protection for your goods, whilst leaving them visible to facilitate a simpler customs inspection, as there’s no need to repackage afterwards.
Great for items that can survive exposure to the elements such as motorbike or outboard marine engines, we can build packing crates in any size, to meet your needs and the needs of the product. Our packing crates are typically 100% timber and fully ISPM15 compliant, though we can adjust the materials used in construction to meet your requirements.
Fully compliant with ISPM15 regulations, our packing crates and cases come with documentation and are correctly marked to ease the import and export procedure.
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.”

“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.”
