I set up Cell Pack Solutions as a sole trader in November 1998. Having spent the previous 12 years working in the battery industry in various technical selling roles, like many people I eventually got to the point in life where I wanted to have a go at working for myself. So armed with a little saved money, a lot of help from friends and family (for which I am eternally grateful), a driving ambition to succeed and an equally strong fear of failure, I took the plunge and resigned from a good but not very personally satisfying job.
Working for yourself has many advantages and disadvantages and my advice to anyone is that if you feel strongly enough about it then go for it but be sure you really like the subject of your venture, because it will take a lot of your time and effort probably more than you might think. Those that have met me will know that I love what I do and will help anyone within my scope.
Our company has progressed very well over the years, we became limited in March 2001, currently employ 20 people and we have now moved four times each time expanding our workspace. 2010 was most successful year to date, we won a number of local business Awards and was extremely proud that we were chosen as the Company of the Year in South Tyneside. I believe that is important to enter these types of awards, they give you the opportunity to examine your processes and get benchmarked against other companies.
We achieved accreditation to ISO 9001 Quality Management System (QMS) in 2004 and now remain accredited to the ISO 9001:2008 standard. We also achieved the ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Management System (EMS) in July 2010. These achievements are a reflection of the great teamwork that is needed with a successful company.
To achieve all this we have had to satisfy many customers and we hope to continue to do this for many years to come.
2013 is will see us move into our own purpose built factory.
I believe that everyone that works at Cell Pack Solutions has the same enthusiasm as myself and hope that this comes across in their dealings with you. However, please feel free to Contact me directly at with any suggestions or complaints and I promise to reply personally.
