BUBL Bag – makers of inflatable and reusable protective packaging – is to trade from now on as BUBL Packaging; the change of name reflects the company’s rapidly expanding number of product lines and follows strong sales growth in the past year of the original BUBL Bags. Following the recent win of prestigious EDGE Award funding BUBL Packaging invested in product development and two new product lines are now available.

BUBL Packaging will be launched formally at the Internet Retailing Expo/eDelivery Expo at the NEC in Birmingham, on 21st and 22nd March; the company is on Stand C103.

BUBL Packaging’s products replace cardboard boxes, padded envelopes, void fill and bubble wrap; the packing process takes much less time than traditional packaging. In addition, they take up very little space and can be reused many times, so they are much more cost – effective that traditional packaging. All material used is recyclable.

The products inflate to provide a secure, air – filled pocket that offers maximum protection for valuable or fragile goods, so transit damage, which accounts for around 7% of all product shipments on average *, and a much higher percentage in some categories, is dramatically reduced.

Two new product lines have been added since the original BUBL Bag: BUBLPods provide advanced protection for high – value products ranging from mobile phones and laptops to replacement windows, artwork and televisions. The air - filled tubes can be customised for specific product variants, and BUBLCases which are perfect for transporting valuable technical and audio - visual equipment. The robust design is ideal for heavy duty, multi - trip use.

The company has also created BUBL Tec to utilise the technology behind the packaging system and enable customisation of its protective packaging to develop bespoke solutions.

Ross Woodburn, managing director, BUBL Packaging said: “The rebranding makes it very clear that we are in the business of packaging, and the new product lines extend our offer to address a much wider range of product categories.”

Cathy Coomber, Operations Manager with medical technology company Axial3D, added: “We create 3D prints of patients’ anatomies, which are used to plan complex surgery. No two are the same shape or size, so when it came to packaging we had difficulty finding a one-size-fits-all solution.

“We had three key criteria; firstly, protect our products in transit globally; secondly, be reusable for medical staff to transport safely around the hospital site; and finally, look great.

“With BUBL Bag we knew instantly we had a solution. It exceeded our requirements and we often receive excellent reviews from our customers on the packaging.”
