Boxed Up Promotes Manufacturing Career Opportunities For Women

Kate Hulley is encouraging more women to pursue a career in the manufacturing sector

Wigan-based packaging manufacturer and supplier Belmont Packaging, also the home of Boxed Up, is setting the standard for women looking to join the industry with a female-led, fresh and energetic workforce.

Commenting on becoming the company’s first female owner, Kate said: “Manufacturing is a sector I feel passionately about and figures show only a quarter of the industry workforce (26%) are actually women, so of course I would like to encourage more women to seek out careers in such a fascinating and diverse industry.”

Kate Hulley bought the company back in 2013 and has already made a lasting impression on her colleagues and redefined the level of service across all departments from Sales, Marketing, Transport to Production and Dispatchment. The company says, ultimately, the success of this has paved the way for Belmont to work directly with high profile retailers such as Boots, Hallmark and New Balance.

“I have always had a personal ambition to work my way into a position where I can make a difference as a female role model so naturally I was delighted to have the opportunity to buy the company. I would encourage all women looking to start up a career in manufacturing to follow in my footsteps, buck the trend and break the mould - it makes you stand out from the crowd after all,” she added.

E-commerce Manager, Rachel commented: “Kate is a strong advocate for the female-led business and brings a great deal of determination, drive and business acumen, which is something I believe is key to building a strong business.”

“We’re all an extremely close team who are often found muti-tasking, overlapping departments and supporting one another to ensure we produce the best results in what is historically a male dominated industry.”
