ATTWOODS The Packaging People – Growing into the future


Proud to be Kiwi owned and operated and with a move to new purpose-built premises, Attwoods Packaging commissioned renowned sculptor James Wright to create a unique piece for their new build.

Well known for many unique works throughout New Zealand, James captured the essence of Attwoods, well known in the region after 52 years of business in the Waikato. Eye-catching and one-of-a-kind, the sculpture takes pride of place at the front of the grounds.

After massive growth in the region, the move to new premises at 1356 Arthur Porter Drive, Burbush, was necessary after only seven years at their previous address The Boulevard, Te Rapa. With the move came opportunities to implement innovative ideas and sophisticated technology to ensure optimal service to their clients and the most effective operations for the business. They also had the opportunity to bring the best of working conditions for staff with a greatly improved warehouse facility and a beautiful reception area.

Attwoods Packaging Family-owned Attwoods Packaging is a leader in the industry, built upon the values founder Eddie Attwood established the company on: integrity, quality and service. These values are reflected throughout the organisation with a great team who are trained, experienced and dedicated to excellence as the standard in all they do. And those same company values extend to the relationships the Attwood’s team have built with both customers and suppliers alike. This is seen in the long-time partnerships they have created built on trust, loyalty and service.

The challenge to create a future-proofed, flagship building was tasked to local design and build construction company Downey Construction alongside project manager Stephen van Wonderen. This was achieved with the approximately 3000-square metre building being built on time and under budget. Modern and carefully planned out with efficient production set-up, the property has plenty of space for further expansion.

The business operates nationally with branches in Auckland, Hamilton, Mount Maunganui and Christchurch.
