Midland Regional Printers offers toy companies packaging solutions

Published on: 4th January 2024

With a commitment to excellence, coupled with a reputation built on trust and a personalised service, Midland Regional Printers is an ideal choice for brands.

With nearly 55 years in business, family-run company Midland Regional Printers (MRP) is thriving. The award-winning manufacturer, based in Nottingham, produces printed products, labels and packaging. With in-house CAD, creative design, new product development and production, from concept to completion, everything is handled under one roof. The company also has co-packing and fulfilment facilities.

Specialising in printed cardboard of a variety of thicknesses and labels, the company’s range includes cardboard model kits, characters, terrain and buildings; colouring books and sticker sheets; young children’s large piece jigsaws up to 12 pieces; and punch boards, game boards and game parts.

MRP has an open mind in term of what it can deliver, and clients can rely on the company to help them to develop a prototype for an idea completely new to the market. An open-door policy allows clients to visit the printworks in Nottingham to see the manufacturing process first hand and meet the team behind the process.

New investments have incorporated a state-of-the-art mounter, specifically designed for sheet-to-sheet mounting of paper to board, both solid and corrugated, creating thicker end products. Alongside this, MRP has also recently installed a new Sanwa 1060 Axia blanking and die-cutting press and two advanced packers for the gluing machines. All these new investments improve efficiency, whist still delivering the quality that clients expect.

Sustainability is core to MRP’s mission. As proud partners of Ecologi, MRP plants a tree for every order, with more than 7,000 trees planted so far. Ecologi collaborates globally for impactful reforestation, carbon offsetting and supporting initiatives that align with the principles of environmental conservation. In addition, MRP has recently installed 290 solar panels to its site to reduce its carbon footprint, working towards more carbon reduction. FSC accreditation means all the cardboard is sourced from certified, sustainable forests which are managed with regard for the people, the wildlife and the environment. MRP also holds ISO 14001 and ISO 9001 accreditations.

Recognising the significance of minimising plastic, MRP has dedicated extensive efforts to craft sustainable alternatives. This includes substituting laminates and UV with equally effective, plastic-free options. The creative team at MRP is enthusiastic about developing custom cardboard alternatives to plastic vacuum form packaging, ensuring client’s vision aligns with eco-friendly solutions.

With a commitment to excellence in toy product and packaging manufacturing, coupled with a reputation built on trust and a personalised service, the company is an ideal choice for brands seeking a dedicated partner.
