MetPro Group

“MetPro have been a customer of Curran Packaging for the past 9 years and our previous Company Ellis Industrial Packaging for 20+ years before that.

This partnership has been by far the best of any of our 50 x suppliers. Nothing is too much trouble and they always go the extra mile to keep our end user stocked and with the best quality on the market.

Whenever we have new lines and trials to carry out the team at Currans will also share valuable knowledge to achieve the best results and at times showing a cost saving. No company can offer the service / quality / Best value that these guys can and continue to do year on year!

Thanks for the continued support to Andy, Dan and the Team! (here’s to next 20 years!!)”
