Three weeks ago today Mike Impson our Sales Director and Stuart Haggar one of our Business Development Managers briefly left our easterly seaside home for a trip up north to Sheffield, for SIBA’s BEER X.
Saxon has a very strong relationship with SIBA and SIBA’s members, having been a member ourselves for over two and a half years now, last year we were even lucky enough to receive the Supplier Associate of the Year award! The success of 2016 spurred us to think even bigger this year as we further cemented our commitment to SIBA by both becoming a silver sponsor and exhibiting at BEER X.
We wanted to make our stand as fun and engaging as we possibly could for everyone attending so we decided to host a small darts competition, which proved to be really popular. We also had a fridge full of tasty beer prizes and goody bags with Saxon’s very own seaside rock to give away! The part of our stand which we were most proud of however, had to be our impressive display of beer packaging we had to showcase. We had a bespoke cardboard Saxon beer bottle display stand designed and printed, which was filled with eye-catching tried and tested can and beer bottle carry packs, mail-order and transit packaging and gift packs we have manufactured and designed for the industry.
“We had a great time discussing packaging solutions with attendants and catching up with customers, both old and new” Stuart said, “we were completely run off our feet in the best way possible!”
When asked to pick a highlight of the weekend, Mike said that “it had to be Friday night at the SIBA Independent Beer Awards and Business Awards. It was great to see so many businesses doing well; especially as many of the prize winners were customers of ours.”
This year Saxon sponsored the Champion Small Pack Standard Lager & Pilsners award and it was Brass Castle Brewery who scooped the Gold. Pictured above is Mike (far right) presenting the well-deserved award to the team along with SIBA Chairman Buster Grant (far left).
With an ever growing list of SIBA customers, we are proud of the work we do to support the brewing industry and we look forward to working with even more members in the future.
Here at Saxon we have an existing library of cutting tools that cover the majority of beer packaging requirements, allowing us to provide tried and tested solutions for gift packs, mail-order and transit packs. This saves SIBA members both time and money as there are no expensive set-up costs associated with the services we provide.
