Concept Special Products

Concept are developing an ever growing portfolio of patented innovative designs and constructional shapes which can be used as a platform to develop new ideas and packs.

Speciality Shaped Packaging

Concept are re-introducing this exciting range of carton board shaped packs as a result of new global partnerships.
These boxes were originally produced in the UK for a number of high profile brands. However the labour intensive aspect of their assembly eventually made them un-competitive in the UK compared to cheaper shaped boxes imported from Asia.

However by working in close collaboration with new global partners we now have the ability to re-launch this exciting range which will be designed and managed entirely from the UK.

We utilise our ability to shape board and change contours to create extremely challenging carton board packs in a variety of shapes and formats. We can also utilise fabric. Ideal for gift sets, beauty, cosmetics, biscuits, confectionery, a tin replacement, or simply challenge us.

We will be introducing our new range in early 2016.



Shaped tube packaging was pioneered by Concept Packaging in the early 1990’s.
