There has been a large increase in the requirement for sachets and single use wipes during the current COVID-19 crisis. This project will develop capability to manufacture single use alcohol wipes for hands and surfaces, and increase capacity in sachet production from 1.32M sachets per week to 1.98M. In the last 4 weeks Primepac Solutions Ltd have produced over 6M sachets for a number of customers, forecasting this to continue in future with projected increases as lockdown restrictions change and businesses increase activity. The sachet business has seen an increase in turnover of £196k in the last 5 weeks, with enquiries for over 2.5M wipes worth around £100k.


Primepac Solutions Ltd seek to develop dual capability to obtain a machine that can produce both sachets and wipes and increase their capacity to allow them to manufacture wipes and sachets without impacting on existing set ups, utilising a 70% alcohol gel mixed on site. They presently supply homecare and personal care products and have purchased wipes and sachets for onward sale to customers, so capability to produce wipes will further support Primepac Solutions Ltd and other customers, as well as meet the immediate need for sanitising wipes. As a contract packer, customer requirements differ, so this will allow flexibility within the business to allow them to react to support customer demands whether they are looking for wipes or sachets.


If successful, this project will allow Primepac Solutions Ltd to increase their capability and capacity to produce in large numbers, hand sanitiser sachets and sanitiser wipes, which is vital in the fight against spreading the virus. It will also allow them to offer individual user size packs that will in turn reduce the need for the general public to buy sanitisers that would previously be destined for the NHS and Key Workers.


Primepac Solutions Ltd was formed in 2005 and are a contract packer specialising in making sachets, filling bottles and hand assembly for the Homecare, Personal Care and Health and Wellbeing sectors.
